2011 Leaf Family Guy Seasons 3, 4 & 5 Trading Cards
It has been a few years since a new Family Guy set has graced shop shelves. This was in part due to Inkworks, the former license holder, going under. Leaf snagged the license and has picked up where Inkworks left off with Family Guy Seasons 3, 4 & 5. Rather than going the pack route, it's been released as a premium box set with each box containing a full base set, an autograph and two inserts. Sketch cards, inserted in approximately every third set, have been done by the show's animators.
