The 150-card base set will once again feature hockey's greatest names along with the stars of tomorrow that have played in the AHL and CHL as well as on the international scene.
Additionally, the brand will be bolstered by the presence of cards featuring players while skating for Team Canada.
In 2006-07, the Heroes portion of the set will include some of the most exciting players to step on the ice in recent years. Mark Messier leads the pack that will include memorable icons such as Jaromir Jagr, Luc Robitaille and Mario Lemieux. Fans of the game's lush history will also appreciate cards of Willie O'Ree, Milt Schmidt and Elmer Lach.
A number of exciting prospects played in the AHL last season and In The Game will be presenting many of them on cards in Heroes and Prospects. It's only a matter of time before players such as Patrick O'Sullivan, Jeff Tambellini and Aleksander Suglobov make a huge impact and we've got them here!
Many of the players selected in the 2006 Entry Draft are a part of the CHL prospects portion of the base and autograph set and the lineup is set to include future superstars such as Peter Mueller, Jordan Staal and Derick Brassard. Throw in big names like Angelo Esposito and John Tavares along with OHL rookies Steve Stamkos, Michael Del Zotto and Jared Staal and you've got something remarkable.
In The Game has also gone all over the world to put together an amazing lineup of International Prospects.
From Russia, collectors can find Evgeni Malkin, Alexander Vasyunov and Yuri Alexandrov while Michael Frolik and Jiri Tlusty represent the Czech Republic. Rounding out this group are Finnish goaltender Tuukka Rask and American sensation Phil Kessel. The Team Canada subset is sensational, as well, 12 of the game's brightest are shown in their red, white and black jerseys. Oh Canada!
With a base set like this, the lineup of players signing autographs is sure to sizzle and collectors will be able to find Autograph cards of most players in this release. A complete lineup will be announced closer to the release date in order to ensure that there are no redemptions. Also, don't forget that you can only find autographs of Tavares in products from In The Game!
Last year, In The Game introduced an exciting innovation within its popular Heroes and Prospects Game-Used Jersey cards as the swatches of memorabilia cards were among our largest to date.
This season, collectors can expect these big swatches once again and the 61-card set features AHL stars like Jimmy Howard, Ryan Getzlaf and Alexandre Picard along with CHL prospects such as Tavares, Esposito and Mueller.
There are also Game-Used Number and Game-Used Emblem cards available and they are sure to please with large and colorful pieces that will be a fine addition to many collections.
Returning once again to the Heroes and Prospects lineup are Net Prospects, Making The Bigs and Complete Jersey. Heroes Memorabilia is back as well and these cards will feature a piece of game-used equipment from some of the biggest names in hockey history. This season features the return of National Pride and the set will feature pieces of game-used gloves from a number of top Canadian prospects.

One of my favourite hockey products, with a great selection of players and a chance to pull some great inserts like jersey patches of AHL, CHL and International like team Canada! The points cards feature team logos of the WHL, OHL, QMJHL and AHL teams! It's one of the truly great hockey card sets worth collecting!
