Leaf MMA,, which is set to release next month.
But what is in this set?
That’s a good question. There are eight packs per box and each pack will have eight cards with one autograph and seven base cards, according to the company’s website. Some autos included in the set are Fedor Emelianenko, Brock Lesnar, Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, Forest Griffin and Gina Carano. Here is the sell sheet for the set.
The picture is from the company's website, which also has two other shots of base cards if you want to see them.
According to the site, over 100 fighters will be featured in the release, 40 of which will be making their trading card debut.
But who are those people?
Another good question. But this time I have no answer. The checklist for this product has not been released. Perhaps it was Leaf finalizing cards or maybe the set isn’t ready yet.
But it looks as though it‘s neither. Leaf is apparently protecting its assets.
Brian Gray wrote on my favorite message board Freedom Cardboard:
“Honestly, one of our competitors as (sic) been calling around to distributors trying to get our checklist for MMA in an effort to make last minute additions to have the first ever autographs of some fighters which we have. We have purposely (sic) withheld that checklist to date, in an effort to perserve (sic) our status as first autographed cards of many athletes.
“I do feel comfortable letting that list roll in the next 10 days... I can assure you that the checklist of over 100 fighters autographed is very strong. Ill make sure you guys know when we post it to the website, leaftradingcards.com”
The checklist is coming soon, but it seems Leaf just wants to keep that to themselves right now keeping it a secret for as long as possible while other companies who create MMA cards are left guessing.
