User Reviews

  1. These may not be out yet but I’ve seen the football set. They look like a 1993 Ultra insert and Royal Rookies set had a child. I dare a card company to make a more unattractive card. It can’t be done!

  2. There are 72 on card autos per case – you won’t find that anywhere else at this price point! Plus, the final checklist adds some stellar names.

  3. I don’t really like the design a whole lot either, but some of these cards, like Spangenberger, is selling on E-bay at $99. That, and as Houdini said, a plethora of on-card autos.

    I am rating a 4, in order to offset the very first review by Kubbie23, which was beyond unfair. I think the product deserves at least 3 stars. I am entirely confused how you rate a baseball product that you haven’t even seen yet, based on a football product that you have. Doesn’t make sense. Card manufacturers rarely, if ever, have the exact same design between two different sports, even of the same year, that they happen to cover. That, and the design isn’t completely terrible. I would rate it as a 2 or 2.5 out of 5. The subjects more than make up for it, though.

  4. I’ll take the mundane design with the almost always near-flawless card and its on-card autograph over a fancy card from Panini with its sticker auto slapped over it. Leaf is basically all we have for competition-if that’s what you’d call what Leaf isn’t allowed to do-vs. Panini.
