Default 2013 Ace (Leaf) Tennis Set

Any thoughts or excitement on this product? I was thinking of buying a case or two as it looks to have 72 auto per case or about $13 per auto.

It's a all autographed base set, so that should be pretty cool.

I prefer the non-mainstream card products

I will probably buy a few boxes of this. I kind of wish there were some patch autos or relic autos though. Cards don't look especially unique, but i've been collecting ace authentic for a long time so they've still got my business!

I think Netpro should fully re-enter into the tennis market. Collector's seem to like their old stuff as well as their 2012 Limited stuff.

Sadly it looks like a lot of reused photos, doesn't seem like a great first effort even if they are using up the last of some Ace stock. Is the autograph list out? i am interested to see if there are any new signers.

The checklist is on Leaf Trading Cards it has shipped and should be live today. I have (3) cases through a LCS, hopefully cracking open later today. I heard Leaf added a few bonuses, mystery cut redemption cards and buy backs. The checklist is HUGE, 150 cards, so hopefully I can hit a couple of the biggies, Nadal, Roger, Maria, Novak, Murray,


with all base cards mumbered to 35 or lower should make for an interesting time casing a complete set

After seeing what is on ebay and now the checklist, not at all impressed. Very weak first effort by Leaf.

Why do they have the hideous shiny stickers?

Looks like some good stuff. Everyone knew Leaf bought out Ace and was gonna use the remaining stock of stickers they had. Would be stupid not to use them.

Expected them to us them but they also displayed no effort. Re-used pics from previous sets and even within this set.




Same pic but one card is cropped, just plain lazy. This photo has been used before too. I know he's old but can't find a new shot at all?



Anna Kournikova is one of the most photographed female players ever. Retired or not, using a pic over again for her is absolutely pathetic.

And you can see many re-used shots in the Perfect Partners set where they took a pervious photo and cropped the head from it.

Just a lazy effort.

Agreed, they should at least use new pictures. So lame to reuse old pics.
