2011 ITG Heroes & Prospects Baseball “Hits” Series 2 Box Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

In The Game understands how to use the color white when it comes to card design.  White just makes the autographs stand out better.  I like the Lumbergraphs autographs because it looks like the player signed a bat.  They look really nice.  ITG made a wise decision when they chose to use baseball leather for the Between The Seams autographs.  Not only does it look nicer when compared to the manufactured leather, but it allows the player’s signature to last longer.  Signatures on manufactured leather seem to fade quite fast even when left in complete darkness.

I like that ITG doesn’t serial number many of their cards.  Its fun researching a product trying to determine how many copies of a specific card were produced.

Price: Photobucket

Boxes run around $80.00.

“Hit” Quality: Photobucket

These boxes are loaded with “hits”.  ITG didn’t put the word “Hits” in the product’s title for no reason.  You’ll notice that the “Prospects” are more plentiful than the “Heroes”.   I pulled the following:

Autographs

  • Manny Machado In The Game Lumbergraphs
  • Kyle Parker Between The Seams Gold Stitch
  • Matt Harvey Silver Version
  • Manny Banuelos Silver Version
  • Michael Choice Silver Version
Overall: Photobucket
Overall, I give 2011 ITG Prospects & Heroes Baseball “Hits” Series 2 4 baseballs out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  I wish other manufacturers who are licensed to use logos could make cards that look like this.  ITG does a great job, especially when it comes to high-end products.  You gotta love a product when all the cards come in penny sleeves and top loaders.
