Hello Hockey Card Collectors;
I am pleased to announce that I have decided to make my return to the hobby with a new venture, President’s Choice Trading Cards.
It’s hard to believe that it is almost three years since I sold In The Game to Leaf Trading Cards, seems like yesterday.
It has been great sitting on the sidelines and watching what has gone on in the hobby but enough time has passed and I realized that I really missed manufacturing the kind hockey cards that collectors want to collect.
President’s Choice Trading Cards will launch on December 1st, 2016. We will endeavor to deliver quality products to the hobby, including a timely special edition boxed product.
Please watch for more editions of Prez Sez in order to stay updated on our upcoming product releases. Tell your friend to subscribe as well.
This is going to be fun.
The Prez – Brian Price
Today is Release Day for the Final Vault.
The Final Vault gives collectors the opportunity to collect stamped cards from the over 16 years of In The Game production.
Each box will contain: 5 stamped Game-Used Memorabilia Cards, 4 stamped Autograph Cards and 1 stamped Mask Card.
We are pleased to announce that in addition to the cards stated above, there will be inserted randomly in boxes of The Final Vault, cards that were produced for previous In The Game products but were not inserted at the time of the products’ release.
These cards will be added to the products’ checklist on our website with a special notation that the card may only be found in The Final Vault.
These cards were not inserted when the product was released due to production issues or players not returning their autograph cards back to us for the pack-out. We needed to find a good home for these cards and this is the perfect place as a bonus to those opening this product. These cards are not stamped.
To be crystal clear, these cards will be the 11th card in random boxes.

The Final Vault Foil Stamping
The foil stamping for the cards in the Final Vault is different for the Autograph Cards, Game-Used Memorabilia Cards and the Mask Cards.
There are three different stamps on the Mask Cards. There is a Gold V 1/1 stamp on one of each card released over the years including the parallels. There is a Silver V 1/5 stamp on five of each card released over the years including parallels. There is a Green V stamp on many of the cards released over the years. The quantity of each Green V stamp varies for the different cards.
All of the Autograph Cards are stamped with a Black V Vault stamp. The number of each Autograph Card stamped and inserted into The Final Vault varies for each different Autograph Card.
Game-Used Memorabilia Cards
Each Game-Used Memorabilia Card is stamped with a different V 1/1 colored foil stamp. The different foil color stamps are; Red, Blue, Green, Silver, Gold, Black, Pink, Purple, Copper and Teal.
Red 1/1 Foil Stamp means that there is at least one card in the product.
Blue 1/1 Foil Stamp means that there are at least two cards in the product.
Green 1/1 Foil Stamp means that there are at least three cards in the product.
Silver 1/1 Foil Stamp means that there are at least four cards in the product.
Gold 1/1 Foil Stamp means that there are at least five cards in the product.
Black 1/1 Foil Stamp means that there are at least six cards in the product.
Pink 1/1 Foil Stamp means that there are at least seven cards in the product.
Purple 1/1 Foil Stamp means that there are at least eight cards in the product.
Copper 1/1 Foil Stamp means that there are at least nine cards in the product.
Teal 1/1 Foil Stamp means that there are up to ten cards in the product.
The Final Vault demonstrates the cards produced by In The Game during our sixteen years in business. We hope you enjoy this trip down “Memory Lane”.
I have important news about In The Game, Inc.’s final release, The Final Vault.
Due to the amount of time it has taken us to inspect each and every card going into the boxes of The Final Vault for quality, we are going to have to delay the Release Date by one week. The new Release Date will be April 7, 2016.
For the past seventeen years, In The Game has taken our Release Dates very seriously and we have tried to be on time with the release of all our products if possible. I think you will admit we have done a very good job in this regard over the years.
Because there is NO Customer Service on the cards in this product, we wanted to take as much time as necessary to qc the cards before they are packaged into the boxes and this has caused this minor delay.
We will still have the product ready for release before the Spring Expo in Toronto. We apologize for the one-week delay but we feel that it is absolutely necessary.
We also want to announce our Redemption Program for the Spring Expo, April 8-10th in Toronto.
Each collector opening a box of The Final Vault at the In The Game booth will receive one special card stamped with the 1/1 Vault Logo. Each card will be a previously issued Game-Used Memorabilia Card. These cards will be selected from many of the previous In The Game trade show Redemption Cards and He Shoots He Scores or He Shoots He Saves program redemption cards. There are some amazing cards available for this program.
Here’s a look at some of the great Redemption Cards available at the In The Game booth at the Spring Expo.
You have to admit, these are great cards.
So while I’m sorry for the delay in the release of this product, I am excited about the Redemption Program at the Spring Expo.
If you haven’t ordered your box of The Final Vault, you should hurry before they are Sold Out.
Pack-out has begun for the March 31st release of The Final Vault and the first few cases of product have rolled off the manufacturing line. Each box is being hand-packed to insure quality control of the cards being inserted.
Here are some of the cards collectors will find in boxes of The Final Vault.
