ITG Pioneering Again
Let’s face it, it is easy to acquire an old hockey card brand produced in the 1990s, use similar designs and make cards of the same players you just released in your last six products.
It doesn’t take too much creativity to do that.
But in this day and age, to come up with a concept that has never been done before, well that takes a combination of creativity, some great memorabilia and a love for the game.
In The Game possesses all of these qualities and this will be demonstrated by our upcoming release – StickWork.
StickWork is an entire product dedicated to game-used sticks, ranging from the 1930s to the present. Each box will contain three StickWork Authentic Game-Used Stick Cards.
Here are some of the insert sets in StickWorks.
The Game-Used Stick insert features past, present and future hockey stars. Each player is featured in 19 silver versions and one gold version. Some of the players featured are Mario Lemieux, Steve Yzerman, Raymond Bourque, Evgeny Malkin, Trevor Linden, Joe Sakic, Mark Messier and Brian Leetch to name a few.
Vintage Game-Used Stick
The Vintage Game-Used Stick insert set is so exquisite, I thought I would show you two of them, Doug Harvey and Terry Sawchuk. These cards are part of hockey’s history and are limited to nine silver versions and one gold version. Others in this insert set include Frank Brimsek, Jacques Plante, Maurice Richard, Bill Mosienko, Tim Horton and Ted Kennedy to name a few.
Enshrined Game-Used Stick
The Enshrined Game-Used Stick insert features pieces of sticks from Hall of Famers. A who’s who of hockey’s greatest stars. Ron Francis, Mats Sundin, Bobby Hull, Cam Neely, Denis Potvin, Doug Gilmour, Marcel Dionne and many, many more will be featured in this insert set.
Goalie Game-Used Stick
Some of the most colorful players in the game use some of the most colorful sticks. The Goalie Game-Used Stick insert includes Goalie Game-Used Sticks and Goalie Paddles
The Goalie Game-Used Stick and Goalie Game-Used Paddle checklists are impressive including Arturs Irbe, Carey Price, Jimmy Howard, Kari Lehtonen, Mike Richter, Kelly Hrudey, Grant Fuhr, Richard Brodeur, Patrick Roy and John Vanbiesbrouck to name a few.
Stick Tape Insert
That’s right, In The Game is finally brining the tape right from the game-used sticks to collectors. There are four different tape inserts: Tape Job, Tape To Tape, 500 Goal Scorers’ Tape and Vintage Stick Tape.

In The Game brought the Lumbergraphs concept to the hobby and this product takes it to another level.
An insert set that is made up of 1/1’s from the players’ names on their stick shafts or “handles”. The list of cards in this insert set is mouth watering, especially for the player collector.
There are only going to be 2,500 boxes produced in this extremely limited product.
Release is scheduled for mid-February 2014.
