2011 In the Game Ultimate Memorabilia 11th Edition Hockey Cards
In the Game's Ultimate Memorabilia line was one of the first to set the high-end standard that is so common in the hobby today. Ultimate Memorabilia 11th Edition hockey cards include a premium mix of current and past stars, with each pack promising an autograph and memorabilia card. With just one base card per pack, the 100-card set is going to be tough to put together. This year, In the Game has recruited the talents of Mike James to draw the base cards with the original artwork to be used on sketch card parallels. Also new is the Ultimate Giveaway program that will award collectors with a full piece of memorabilia, including a game-used Brett Hull All-Star jersey.
