Wow - I can't believe you missed the one I picked up on eBay a while back!! Good for me! LOL.

Always trading for Barry Larkin. Currently have 1834 different out of 3579 total cards.

Will trade for other Cincinnati Reds and Cincinnati Bengals

This may sound like a stupid question, but these are actually printed on leather?
Or is there some other reason for them to be called that?
I've seen the wood set and you can see the wood grain, on these I don't see any leather grain beneath the picture.

Topps should send me Flowers and Candy this Valentine's Day, because they've been screwing me pretty regularly throughout the year. Smile

Faux leather. They have the texture similar to baseball-type leather. Since my minis are double-sleeved, the texture is hard to see but it covers the whole area. Cheap scanners don't help either.

I don't think it's possible to print on real leather since it would fade out over time.

Thanks! That makes more sense. I was really confused how it would have been done otherwise.
Great collection and I hope you are able to complete your set.
