2011-2012 ITG Canada vs. The World Box Break & Review

Design: Photobucket

The set is nicely designed, but I do have a few suggestions.  The background on the autographs seem to be a little busy for my taste.  When it comes to an autographed card, I prefer a plain white background that allows the signature to stand out more.  11/12 ITG Canada vs. The World contains the last 25 cards for the 100 Years of Hockey Card Collecting set.  When I first saw them, I thought they were actual mini tobacco size cards.  Instead its a normal size card that pictures a mini card.  Collectors will find one per box.

Price: Photobucket

Boxes are currently selling for $98.00.

“Hit” Quality: Photobucket

Each box should contain (6) “hits” – (2) autographs and (4) memorabilia.  For $98.00 I don’t think that’s too bad.  I pulled the following:

Autographs

  • Kyle Turris Auto
  • Darren Helm Auto
Relics
  • Darryl Sittler Canadian Cloth Jersey Black
  • Joe Thornton World Junior Grads Silver Version Jersey
  • Niklas Backstrom International Material Jersey Black
  • Mario Lemieux/Martin Brodeur/Mike Richter/Chris Chelios 2002 Rivals International Showdown Canada vs. The World Silver Version Quad Jersey
Inserts
  • Mike Modano No. 88 – 100 Years of Hockey Card Collecting
  • Frank Mahovlich Summit Series #5
  • Jack McCartan Roots Of International Hockey #6
Overall: Photobucket
Overall, I give 2011-2012 ITG Canada vs. The World 4 globes out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  If your a hockey collector looking for a quick thrill and don’t want all those extra base cards I suggest giving it a try.
