Johnny Manziel has plenty of football cards already. Now "Johnny Football" has a handful of baseball cards on the way courtesy of Leaf.
The card maker has announced plans they're going to include the high-profile Heisman winner in 2014 Leaf Metal Draft, 2014 Leaf Valiant and 2014 Leaf Trinity Baseball. All of the planned Johnny Manziel baseball cards are autographs.
Although it may seem strange to have baseball cards of a football player, Manziel was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 28th round of the 2014 MLB Draft. The team had him throw out a ceremonial pitch, which is likely the most in-game action he'll see on the diamond.
UPDATE (11/17/2014): Topps has announced they're joining Leaf and making some Johnny Manziel baseball cards of their own. He has autographs in 2014 Bowman Draft Baseball. Unlike the Leaf cards, these feature Manziel in a Padres uniform.
The Browns rookie isn't the first football player to have a baseball card in 2014. Topps also produced a couple of cards of Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson.
