In The Game readies second helping of baseball line
By Chris Olds | Baseball Editor
In the Game made its debut in the baseball market back in February with 2011 Heroes & Prospects Baseball Hits and now it’s ready for a second helping.
This time, it’s 2011 Heroes & Prospects Baseball Series 2 Low Numbers, and it will arrive on Aug. 3 — the opening day of the National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago.
Just like Series 1, there will be five cards per pack — all “hits” that are autographs, memorabilia cards or cut signatures.
New this series are Heroes Hard Cuts, 1/1 cut autographs of baseball legends as well as On the Barrelhead 1/1s which showcase a large portion of a game-used bat, presumably including stamping. Finally, there will be First Pitch 1/1s, which will feature sweet spot autographs of presidents.
