2013/2014 ITG Decades The 90s Box Break & Review

Design:  photo 3cube.jpg

The relics, base, and inserts are designed using In The Game’s standard procedure.  Nothing really different there.  Where Decades The 90s truly shines are the autographs.  Its got on-card signatures with a lightly faded image of that player’s arena in the background.  These autographs look sharp!  No white boxes either.

Price:  photo 3cube.jpg

Boxes are currently selling for $95.00.

“Hit” Quality:  photo 3cube.jpg

Boxes contain 14 cards.  There should be at least (3) autographs and (3) relics.

I pulled the following:

Autos

  • Guy Hebert Decades 1990s Autograph
  • Steve Smith Decades 1990s Autograph
  • Bill Ranford Decades 1990s Autograph

Relics

  • Mike Richter Game-Used Jersey
  • Nikolai Khabibulin Between The Pipes 2-Color Jersey
  • Mario Lemieux/Jaromir Jagr/Mark Messier/Mike Richter Rivalries Quad Jersey

Inserts

  • Pavel Bure Decades 1990s Rookie #DR-12
  • Patrick Roy Decades 1990s MASK #DM-18

Base

  • Byron Dafoe #38
  • Patrick Marleau #115
  • Bryan Trottier #164
  • Gordie Howe #62
  • Grimson vs. Probert Enforcers #188
  • Ron Francis/Jeremy Roenick Cup Clashes #193

Overall:  photo 3cube.jpg

Overall, I give 2013/2014 ITG Decades The 90s 3 ice cubes out of 5 (1=poor & 5=perfect).  In The Game did an excellent job with the signatures.  These autographed cards are how Press Pass should have made Sports Town Football last year.

In The Game’s 2011 National Plans Are Coming Together

ITG has announced some of their plans for the 2011 National Sports Collectors Convention.  They got a lot going on!!!

Photobucket

ITG will be producing a special National version of Decades – 1980s Hockey.  In this version, one of the three relic cards will be replaced with a Chicago Blackhawks Decades quad relic card.  There are 8 different Blackhawks Decades quad relic cards to collect.  In addition to this, anyone who opens a box of Decades – 80’s at the ITG booth will received a memorabilia card serial numbered 1/1.

Collectors can also look for autographs of Dominik Hasek, which can only be found in this special Decades – 1980s version.

Anyone who opens a box of this special version of Decades – 1980s will also receive a free ticket for a Mark Wells autograph.  Wells will be signing at the ITG booth on August 6 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  In addition to all of that, collectors who open a box of this stuff will receive a redemption card that qualifies you for the ITG wrapper redemption program.  More information to come on that.
