2016 Leaf Live Trading Cards – Tim Tebow and John CusackBrand: Leaf
Jumping in line with the other real-time brands such as Topps Now and Panini Instant, 2016 Leaf Live enters the print-to-order fray with their own take on timely card releases. The new line debuts with a cardboard tribute to beloved actor Gene Wilder.
Featuring a format that is most likely familiar to collectors, each 2016 Leaf Live card will be sold for one full week and the total amount produced will directly reflect the number ordered. As stated by the card maker, "Whether the print run is 10 copies or 500, Leaf pledges to let the marketplace determine the print run of its special offerings."
Although many of the other real-time sets have a specific focus, Leaf Live will touch on a wide array of genres, including sports, entertainment and politics, among other topics deemed relevant by the company.
2016 Leaf Live cards are sold through the Leaf eBay account and direct from the company via their customer and dealer mailing list. All cards include free shipping for orders placed in the continental United States. Cards will be shipped within three days.
