    Post First look: 2012 Leaf Legends of Sport

    http://www.beckett.com/news/2012/12/...ends-of-sport/

    In 2012 Legends of Sport, Leaf has assembled popular athletes and pop culture figures to fill out the set, including international baseball stars, Olympic athletes and even a former Vice Presidential hopeful.

    The set includes more than 150 subjects.

    Legends of Sport is scheduled to come out at the end of January and each box will contain three autograph cards.

    The base set of autographs includes names such as soccer star Hope Solo, baseball’s Ichiro Suzuki and football’s Robert Griffin III. There is even a Sarah Palin autograph thrown in the mix.

    There is a large focus on Olympic athletes. However, maybe none greater than a booklet card featuring 16 autographs from members of the 1980 men’s hockey Olympic goal medal team – the men who brought the country the “Miracle on Ice.” Autographs on the booklet include Mike Eruzione and Jim Craig.

    The autograph subsets include nickname cards, cards numbered to a player’s respective jersey number, Award Winner Autographs and We are the Champions Autographs.

    Those look pretty cool, but being unlicensed cards of MLB, NBA, and NFL athletes will probably hurt their sales.
    NOT doing 50/50s nor consignments!

    Looking at those cards the signatures look nothing like the athletes signatures I'm used to seeing,especially the Ryan and Pujols.
    Do something nice for someone everyday, it will pay off in the long run.

    Like the patches they use on the mocks up the autographs are just mock ups made by some guy with photoshop by the company
