Every year around this time of year my wife and I become very excited about the upcoming Heroes and Prospects release.  In The Game always does a nice job getting out patches and autographs of players coming up through the ranks. Here is a preview of what to expect from this year’s release:

As you can clearly see, at three hits per box, this promises to be another solid release.  I’ve never gotten a bad box of Heroes and Prospects and I hope this year’s will be just as good.  Product releases mid – January and I can’t wait.
