ITG Licensing Situation Churns Draft Redemption Concerns August 19th, 2005
beckett.com
When Flyers collector Jeff Thoresson spent more than $300 to acquire four cards from the 2003-04 BAP Memorabilia Draft Redemptions series, he did so with high expectations of the potential of Philly prospects Jeff Carter and Mike Richards. He hoped that the duo would debut this season with the Flyers and he’d be able to exchange the redemptions for limited edition cards of the 2003 first rounders. Richards and Carter look ready to make good on their end of the bargain. Unfortunately, collectors like Thoresson are living with the worry that In The Game may not be in a position to live up to theirs. The company currently is without a license from the NHL or the NHL Players’ Association. It would need both in place to honor the redemptions and manufacture the exchange cards.
