Default Leaf Rize????

While browsing eBay I found card listings for "Leaf Rize" cards:

leaf rize | eBay

I couldn't find any information on the internet, but here is the description from the ebay page:

Just as Topps has Bowman, Leaf Trading Cards now has their new sub-brand - RIZE Trading Cards. 2012 marks the debut of their inaugural release, and it's sure to be hit with investors and collectors alike. These cards are gorgeous, with new, trending design concepts, and a limited production run. The content of this set is possibly the best, ever! It's loaded with over 100 of the top draft picks, rookies and blue-chip prospects in the game. RIZE Draft also includes high-end, rare inserts, autographs and limited parallel "Paragons".

Anyone know about this?

Do they have any autos or is this an insert set?

Rize sounds like the name of some knockoff boner pills...

Edit:

Hey...what do you know:

I had just found the same thing and was about to post it.

I believe this is the first baseball product named after male enhancement medication.

Leaf claims it's not their product.

Hey, I love unlicensed cards. Anyone have any 1990s Broders available?

My question to Leaf would be why sell them the rights? If I owned a card company the last thing I would want would be more competition, or my name attached to a basement startup.

Brian Gray makes Sergeant Schultz look knowledgable. Luckily, this hobby is filled with savvy individuals who could never be snowed over by a huckster.

As long as you don't mind waiting until Haiku refunds the thousands of dollars I sent him via PayPal gift, sounds like a plan for me. If Qwasian signs on to replace Tempy Moore as the supplier of only the highest quality 1/1 sketch cards for that release, it will probably be the product of the year for 2013. I just hope the Qwasian sketches are distributed with the same level of integrity as the Leaf Draft and Leaf Valiant purple refractors were.

I thought Leaf WAS the 'subbrand'.

Leaf has always been the ugly sister, trying to make make up for inadequacies by being a whore, but in the end is still one ugly B.

So happy about this. I have not and would not buy their products. The only one that doesn't look like crap is EEE and I only buy cards that have pro team uniforms. Just my preference.

Well I take back the only semi compliment I could give and stand corrected. Leaf sucks 100% apparently. Would love some competition for Topps but just not seeing it.
