Default In the Game celebrates a century of hockey

In the Game celebrates a century of hockey

In The Game unveiled its latest forthcoming hockey card set during the weekend, Ultimate Memorabilia Series 10th Edition, which will include a C-56-style base set and redemption cards for original cards from the famed first hockey set.

The original C56 checklist includes 36 cards — 20 of those players in the Hall of Fame — and In The Game will hope to capture some of that retro magic with its 2010 set.

Hockey’s centennial season will be full of glances toward the past and celebrations of where the game has gone. ITG is aiming to tap into that with this product, which emulates a set full of magic itself. Among the players in the original set include Newsy Lalonde, who scored the first goal in Montreal Canadiens history, Fred “Cyclone” Taylor, who was one of the game’s first true superstars, as well as Frank and Lester Patrick, who helped form and legitimize the Pacific Coast Hockey Association as well as support women’s hockey and international championships.

Today’s rendition of the classic set will have the advantages of technology, meaning printing advances and touches like autographs and game-used memorabilia swatches are possibilities. We’ll have to wait and see what In The Game includes as they revive this classic line in 2010.
