I did too. Some good looking autos in this set. Haven't bought a Leaf product since like 1994 ... this might break the streak.

Nice--the early 90s Leafs cards were some of my favorite designs

90 leaf was my fav (92 bowman was pretty sweet too). Minus the airbrushed cards, this looks pretty nice. I don't see any presell info list here so a price point and release date would be nice to have

This looks pretty nice. Some of the best products could be something as simple as this. Takes us back to the time like 5-7 years ago when not every product was 99% rookies

I'm glad to see this type of product coming out from them. I was a little concerned that they were just going to use the Leaf name to sell Razor-type stuff.

Thanks Jaypers, not sure where you got that info (facebook/twitter probably) as I just came from Leafs site and there was nothing there about this release. So are we thinking this is going to be a $100-$200/box product then?

It was at the bottom of the sell sheet - for some reason, the one in the OP seems to have been cut off.

Great set. I remember buying boxes and boxes. Looking at the examples above though reminds me of how bad a lot of the centering was back then. Looks like it may be a problem again. Sweet set to get fully auto'd.

One of the first products that I sold tons of when I first started doing shows as a kid. I would order boxes in out of california and sell thru it as fast as I could afford to get it. Bought and sold 1000's of of the Franks when he was hot.....Still got a 3200 count box or 2 of "commons" that I have not gone thru in years from opening boxes. Last time I did was looking for sosa rookies when he was hot and I had 11 of them in there.

Sweet! Leaf put out a last second, similarly limited Leaf Ink product last year and I thought it was a great buy. Looks like it's leaf memories this year. Hoping for the same.

What kind of price point are we looking at? 140ish sound right?

So, they can use the MLB Logos in the pictures because they won the rights to those pictures (from the old set)? I'm sure I have something wrong in that, but can someone clarify?
