2017 Leaf Signature Series Tennis brings autographs from some of the game’s greats, past and present. And while the product as a whole is limited, several of the biggest names are included as case hits.
Every box of the signature-only product has ten autographs.
Leading the way in 2017 Leaf Signature Series Tennis among current players are Serena Williams and Roger Federer. Kim Clijsters, Caroline Wozniacki and Andy Murray are also on the checklist. And then there are the retired stars, headlined by Pete Sampras who has had only a handful of autograph cards in the past. Others include Martina Navratilova and Martina Hingis.
In addition to the base autograph design, there are a couple of different inserts. Opponents pair up two signatures. Others include the country-focused National Pride, Peak Performance and Career Wins. On top of these are various levels of parallels.
Each 12-box case guarantees at least one autograph from each of many of the key signers. That means a minimum of one Sampras autograph in each case, one from Williams, one from Federer as well as Murray and Clijsters.
The production run of 2017 Leaf Signature Series Tennis is limited to less than 150 cases.
