2013-14 ITG StickWork Hockey Cards
Game-used stick cards are not new. They have been around for more than a decade. However, developing an entire product around the concept is something that hasn't been done before. 2013-14 ITG StickWork Hockey is an all-memorabilia release that explore every part and sliver of the important piece of gear.
Every box has three cards, all of which have game-used stick pieces. They cover more than 75 years of hockey history, dating back to the 1930s through to today. The product breaks down into several insert sets. All individual cards are extremely limited.
Game-Used Stick covers a more modern look at the game and include such players as Mario Lemieux, Mark Messier and Evgeni Malkin. Basic Silver versions are limited to 19 copies each while Gold parallels are one-of-ones. As the name suggest, Vintage Game-Used Stick goes back in time to an earlier period. Terry Sawchuk is one of the highlights here. Silver cards are limited to nine copies.
Netminders get a couple of sets with Goalie Game-Used Stick and Goalie Paddles. Patrick Roy, Carey Price, Grant Fuhr and Mike Richter are among those included.
2013-14 ITG StickWork has four sets focused on game-used stick tape: Tape Job, Tape to Tape, 500 Goal Scorers and Vintage Stick Tape.
Stick Rack cards have two, three and four pieces of memorabilia. Enshrined Game-Used Stick is dedicated to Hall of Famers. Stick Handles are similar to bat barrels found in some baseball products. These one-of-one cards have the player name that's from the stick's shift. Lumbergraphs are like cut signature cards, only instead of index cards and cut up photos, they use signed pieces of game-used sticks.
2013-14 ITG StickWork has a total print run of 2,500 boxes.

Just look at the new ruling now excluding Panini for licensing next year, just too bad regular collectors don’t have their say…
