I believe in miracles!
In The Game will be releasing Decades – The 80’s on June 2, 2011 and am I excited.
Decades is the second product we are releasing based on an extensive poll voted on by collectors two years ago. We asked what was the most significant year in hockey history.
1972 narrowly won the poll over 1980 and a hockey trading card product was produced last year to commemorate 1972. This product sold out quickly and is still highly collected today.
Now we have turned our attention to 1980.
There were so many events in the 1980’s decade, we choose to feature the entire decade in this product rather than just the year 1980.
But who could forget 1980.
Herb Brooks put together a team of young American hockey players who were supposed to have no chance to even medal at the 1980 Olympics. But they believed in Brooks and themselves and defeated a dominant Soviet Union team and then the Finns to win the history gold medal.
In The Game is please to feature hard signed autographs from every player on the 1980 US Olympic Hockey Team – The Miracle On Ice team.
Bill Baker, Bob Suter, Buzz Schneider, Dave Christian, Dave Silk, Eric Strobel, Jack O’Callahan, Jim Craig, John Harrington, Ken Morrow, Mark Johnson, Mark Pavelich, Mike Eruzione, Mike Ramsey, Neal Broten, Phil Verchota, Rob McClanahan, Steve Christoff, Steve Janaszak and Mark Wells.
The 80s was a great decade for hockey and hockey cards and our product will pay tribute to that decade. Remember June 2, 2011. Get yours and don’t get shutout.
