In The Game Heroes & Prospects Baseball
In The Game Trading Cards, a company that has been known solely for hockey since they came in to the market in 1998, has recently announced their plans for a baseball release expected to be shipping in November. ITG, who will be working without a MLB license, will be releasing a set of retired/HOF players and prospects.
Each box will contain 4 cards with each an average of 3.5 autographs per box (their words not mine) and every other box will contain a Heroes Cut Signature or Heroes Memorabilia card.
For an unlicensed set the autograph cards look pretty decent but I am not a fan of mixing HOF players with prospects. Pulling a cut signature of Joe DiMaggio or Ted Williams along with a sticker autograph of Tim Beckham really puts a damper on the whole experience for me. It does not help that team logos can be seen plus they are using the UD Sweet Spot Signature design, calling it “Between The Seams”, you wonder what ITG was thinking.
