The press release is below, but we couldn’t be more excited as we announce this acquisition.
In addition, Leaf is currently in talks with 2 additional parties in an effort to make strategic acquisitions to continue Leaf’s growth and investment in the industry.

Good move for them. Although not sure how big a market is for tennis cards.
Maybe 2 series a year.
What would be some big names for Leaf to get as signers that don't have much out on the market.

Always like Ace Authentic so I'm interested in what Leaf does to take it to the next level. Biggest fear is this move was to get guys like Nadal and Federer into their other products more than build tennis only stuff.

I wonder if they will continue lines of auto photo and auto balls that Ace did, I liked picking those up sometimes more than traditional cards.

Are there any pics yet? Just because they bring out a set doesn't mean the move wasn't to get tennis greats into other products. The could spend no time and throw out something tennis that looks like crap. Would love to see what the designs are if any have been released.

I hope they make the product better and not worse. More releases a year would be good too. I'm dying for more tennis products.
