Me too, especially when you have a deposit that will be held until Leaf decides to release it

Man really tough on the group breaks going on here, got a lot of people with money that has already been paid for these breaks and the product just keeps getting pushed back, very annoying.

I hope the actual cards look better than the ones on the sales sheet. The artwork for Hogan, Flair and Nash is horrible, in my opinion.

Way old discussion, the artwork on the other cards we have seen has been very good to fantastic. Sell sheet MIGHT be mock-ups, dunno because we haven't actually seen those cards yet.

I hear you. I'm no fan of redemption but when a company pushes a release back more and more, it makes me more and more less excited for it. There is no doubt that this will be a big release for Leaf and will probably sell out. It's just looking like I'll be less and less likely to be one of those that help to make it a success. Especially with DC The Next 52, Walking Dead 2 and Big Bang Theory 3&4 coming soon.

As much as we all hate the release date being pushed back. Leaf hates doing it a 100 times more. All comes down to these guys being lazy and not getting their cards in. Was smart of Leaf to use American Icon signings and others like that to get some done. I'm sure Leaf is sending some of these guys a box a cards, with pens, return postage ect. Making it as simple as possible, but these guys aren't the most reliable to get stuff done in timely manner.

Yep. Look forward to seeing all the guys getting first cert autos released.

Also with all the different ink colors guys signed with. Going to be lots of variations.

Spoke with a lady from Leaf today on the phone. She said that their goal is to have it out by the end of August but they can't set a release date except that it will be on a Friday. They were waiting on too many wrestlers to sign but she said she believes it will be out by end of August but couldn't promise that.

Wow I just heard from my local card store that he does not expect to have this until September 21. Wow just wow. Any chance of me getting some of this has gone down the tubes I think with it now coming out right when Walking Dead and Big Bang Theory should be coming out. Of well.

I can only imagine. I'd be very angry if I were either hosting a group break or participating in one. I mean wasn't this product supposed to be out by now? No official checklist yet, no real new pictures or info. I mean I like Leaf a lot, but this is getting a bit ridiculous.

Was suppose to be out the last week of July I think.

Side note heard Iron Sheik's health is getting worse, and sadly he is broke broke.

Saw this posted on another site from Leaf....

2012 Leaf Originals Wrestling - This exciting set has been both a pleasure to work on and a challenge to complete. Due to some issues which are beyond our control (health issues, incarceration and rehab stints), we have had to revise dates to make sure we execute as well as possible. Doing on-card autographs makes this even more challenging, but we know how important this is and remain committed to successful execution. To reduce potential redemption issues, we have elected to push this release back to 9/20/12.
I do apologize for any inconvenience, but hope you will agree that a well executed product is worth waiting for! This product is SOLD OUT.
