The Autograph checklist is pretty deep with each player having 2 different cards. All are on-card autographs and include Parallels of Gold /20 and Silver Short Prints of Drouin, MacKinnon and Jones. Game Used Relics come in Single, Dual and Triple players along with Patch's and Nameplates. These range from /110 to 1/1 print runs. being that you find 2 per box you should hit something decent in your box.
This is a pretty good box to pick up when you have the potential of all of this for around $100 per box. So I decided to rip it open and see what our first box of ITG would deliver:
Base Cards: 2 - Jared McCann, Jackson Whistle
First Round Pick: 2 - Mike Bossy, Grant Fuhr
First Round Pick Emerald: 1 - Kari Lehtonen (Print Run of 50)
Draft Surprises: 1 Doug Gilmour
Draft Surprises Emerald: 1 - Patrick Roy (Print Run of 50)
Draft Prospects Teammates Dual Relic: 1 - Eric Roy / Ryan Pulock (Print Run of /90)
Autograph: 2 - Nikita Zadorov, Mirco Mueller
First Round Pick Nameplate: 1 - Joey Hishon "2nd H" 1/1
Autograph Silver Short Print: 1 - Nathan MacKinnon
Lets catch our breath for a second and start at the top. The base cards are a nice design with a foil technology on normal stock. They are a little sensitive on the corners so be careful when pulling them out of the box. The First Round Pick design is nice as well. ITG doesn't have an NHL license so they used the Minor league team logos and hide the NHL logos on the photos. This doesn't take away from the cards at all and are very nice.
This was an amazing box to bust and couldn't have asked for anything more from it. With only 5 cards from the base set in each box it would be tough to put a complete set together and should provide a very good secondary market for the cards. The emeralds being /50 also have good secondary value and have seen them already selling for around $10. On-card Autographs and Relics guaranteed are always a great thing and ITG doesn't disappoint. If your a hockey fan and have a chance to pick up one of these boxes I would highly recommend it. Very good value for what you get per box.
