2013-14 Heroes and Prospects
What do Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin, Corey Perry, Steven Stamkos, Patrick Kane, Eric Staal, Evgeni Malkin, Henrik Lundqvist, John Tavares, P.K. Subban and Carey Price have in common?
They all made their licensed trading card debut in Heroes and Prospects
It is difficult for me to believe but this year marks the 10th Anniversary of Heroes and Prospects. It seems like yesterday that this concept was born but I guess time passes quickly when you’re having a good time.
Again this year there is a 199 card Base Card set with the last 49 cards being the 3D Class of 2014 cards.
The Autograph Card checklist is comprised of 108 different player cards along with 4 Dual Father and Son autograph cards.
Authentic Game-Used Memorabilia Inserts
Year after year, collectors have been able to rely on Heroes and Prospects featuring great Game-Used Memorabilia Cards.
The 10th Anniversary version continues this tradition.
Game-Used Auto/Memo Inserts
To add to the excitement of the 10th Anniversary, there will be three different Game-Used Auto/Memo insert sets. Game-Used Jersey/Auto, Subway Series Game-Used Jersey/Auto and Top Prospect Game Game-Used Jersey/Auto. These cards combine large pieces of authentic game-used memorabilia with corresponding player autographs. Each insert set features over 20 different cards and there are 19 of each silver version and a 1/1 gold version.
Ten years ago we took the bold step to make a product that included past, present and current hockey players – Heroes and Prospects. Since that time the line-up of Prospects has included the who’s who of the best young players in hockey. The first year design shown below is going to be used in creating the 2013-14 Heroes and Prospects Non-Memorabilia insert set of current CHL players.
Special 10th Anniversary Insert
A special game-used memorabilia insert has been created to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Heroes and Prospects. This insert set will commemorate 100 of the players who were Prospects over the first 10 years of this product. There is an interesting twist with respect to the insertion rate of these inserts. The top 10 will be numbered 1 of 10, the next 10 will be numbered 1 of 20 and final 10 of the 100 card checklist will be numbered 1 of 100.
Made To Order
The Made To Order program continues in the 10th Anniversary of Heroes and Prospects with Single Memorabilia, Double Memorabilia and Triple Memorabilia Made To Order Redemption Cards.
I hope you agree with me that the 2013-14 Heroes and Prospects 10th Anniversary product is special.
There will be a couple more surprises announced closer to release date.
