Did PDLP let the trademark go?

That's what I was wondering. Looks like the same typeface except they got rid of the "leaf" and the oval around it.

Looks like a ploy by Brian Gray to distract attention away from Razors past wrong doings. Will it work?

MasterOfTheDark 08-04-2010 05:24 PM

Very interesting...

Cards look nice too.:)!

I know most will probably disregard this news and keep bashing that company, but this is really big news!! Having the leaf name gives them instant credibility with collectors, whether you think they deserve that credibility or not. I hope they do big things with it too! Less repackaged products and more real products. I'd love to see them attack the baseball prospect market again with the Leaf name as long as they stop doing direct ebay sales of singles, etc. Its nice seeing that logo back on cards... I just hope they capitalize on this opportunity and not run the brand into the ground like Upper Deck did with Fleer.

I can not agree more. This is a huge step in the right direction, and I hope they don't mess it up. I'm in utter shock still. The logo just brings back memories of 1990 all over again. The plain jane Leaf logo right there.

very awesome, very happy with this :)

I believe when Panini aquired Playoff they did not acquire the Leaf trademark. That is why we saw Limited, Certified and Rookies and Stars without the Leaf name in front of it.

Intersting. So DLP could have sold the rights to the Leaf trademark to Razor then. Or perhaps Panini could have got it when they aquired DLP and then sold it. Either way it is not an issue. Really a great concept though. :)!

Sketch cards?

Bailey 08-04-2010 06:38 PM

Good point. This makes a lot of sense.

I don't see it working for them but wish them the best.

rambel 08-04-2010 06:43 PM

The LCS owner told me that Donruss had to pay Leaf a little royalty fee when they used the name Leaf. They dropped the Leaf name when Panini bought them.

Nicnac 08-04-2010 07:15 PM

more excuses for them to cut up autographed trading cards to make autographed trading cards? ;)

Lets not forget that Upper Deck is connected with Razor/Leaf... Keep in mind that a tiger doesn't change his stripes. ;)

I talked to the guy at the leaf booth today for a good 30 mins. They didn't aquire any major sports licenses so I wouldn't expect anything big. They did however sign a bunch of big name MMA guys (same that was to appear in razor mma, now leaf mma) and a bunch of poker players. What I took from talking with him is that they will be concentrating on these product lines, but made no mention as to the repackaged products.

IndySportsCards 08-04-2010 09:11 PM

It's still Upper Deck.

anusinha 08-04-2010 09:56 PM

So after they're done crapping on the Leaf name, are they going to change theirs to Pro Set?

mma138 08-05-2010 02:56 AM

so someone correct me if im wrong . leaf mma release is going to replace razor mma ?
