Product Details

User Rating:

The storied card brand is back with 2018 Sportkings Volume 1. Hobby boxes contain six hits, including two on-card autographs and four memorabilia cards, plus one bonus hit or insert. In addition, Blasters offer one premium card per box.

Produced by Sage, the multi-sport Sport Kings product line mixes champions across multiple disciplines and was last seen as a Leaf set.

2018 Sportkings Volume 1 Base

Featuring a 50-card base set, the 2018 Sportkings Volume 1 checklist is quite limited, at least for Hobby collectors. Each box has two base cards from a production total of just 100 base sets.

There are also rare Red Back/Red Background (1:2 cases) and Mini (1 per box) parallels

2018 Sportkings Volume 1 Autographs / Cut Signatures

Consisting of on-card autographs and cut signatures, the hits in 2018 Sportkings Volume 1 stick with a simple design. This includes hard-signed Sportkings Autograph and Autographed Single Memorabilia cards for many of the base subjects.

2018 Sportkings Volume 1 Trading Cards 2

Naturally, some of the most legendary options are part of the cut signature inserts. Collectors can find one-of-one Icons cards for all-time greats like Ty Cobb, Muhammad Ali and Joe DiMaggio.

Adding an actual drawing from Gary Kezele are the Century Heroes Cut Signature and Diamond Heroes Signatures Baseball Cut sketch cards.

2018 Sportkings Volume 1 Sketch / Graded / Other Hits

That's not it, though, as the 2018 Sportkings Volume 1 checklist has various odds and ends. Jared Kelley lends his talents to the one-of-one Sketch cards.

2018 Sportkings Volume 1 Trading Cards 7

Other case hits include renderings from Paul Madden that were used to make the base cards, and a 9" x 12" print of the Jim Brown base rendering.

Looking back to the original set, graded 1933 Sport Kings cards offer the chance at a PSA 8 for Carl Hubbell, among others.

User Reviews


I’m stuck buying retail of this. Blah.
Couple things

1. States 50 card set. Where is 49 and 50? Who is on the cards?

2. Says Volume I. Where’s Vol II?

Trey Treutel
Trey Treutel

Cobb and Payton have variations, so 50 base cards in total. No word on Volume 2.


Very disappointing product. Bought 3 hobby boxes. Got 3 Enos Slaughter unnembered jersey cards…2 in the same box. No great autos or anything else. Spent $630 and got, maybe, $200 worth of cards. To think, I pre-ordered this and was actually looking forward to it. Sage would have been better off doing Sage Autographed Football again instead of this.

Awesome! Broke 3 Boxes, Hit a 1/1, Jordan Swatch, but the best of all is all cards are signed on card NO STICKERS! Love this product couldn’t recommend it more

Repetitive stuff: 7 Fred Couples patches duplicates and triplicates of obscure names
Highlight was a Siidney Crosby original art card
Expecting to lose $2000 on this case

Loved the artwork!
Thank you Sage for picking up this product

Did a case and loved it!

Very unique product with super low production. It’s not for everyone, but for the money you get some great content.

Worst product of 2018. Why waste good paper and ink on something like this. SAGE really dropped the ball on this one.


Hey Trey,

Do you know why Leaf isn’t doing this set anymore? Also, if Sage is doing this set now, why does the sell sheet say Sports Entities, Inc.? Sage’s website appears to be out of commission as well. Seems… odd

Trey Treutel
Trey Treutel

I didn’t hear a reason why Leaf stopped making Sportkings sets. The Sage site is not amazing and never seems to be up-to-date but was running the last time I checked (Sage Collectibles.com). I believe Sports Entities, Inc. owns the rights to the Sportkings trademark and Sage worked out a deal with them to use the brand to make a card set.
