Leaf Live Checklist, Print Runs and Full Details
Leaf Live is live. The card maker follows in the footsteps of Topps Now and Panini Instant to offer trading cards with on-demand print runs.
To launch the line, Leaf offered a Gene Wilder memorial card. The legendary actor passed away yesterday at the age of 83. But the eclectic nature of the set seemed to take shape a little more a couple of days later with the addition of Yoan Moncada, a prospect called up by the Boston Red Sox. A few days after that, Leaf added Dak Prescott to commemorate the rookie’s spot as the Dallas Cowboys’ Week 1 starting quarterback.
Things soon got political with a card commemorating the September 26 debate between Presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Rather than selling the cards through their own site, 2016 Leaf Live cards are available through the company’s eBay store. They’re also being offered direct to their dealer network. Each card has a week-long sales window.
Like other print-to-oder offerings, only those cards that are sold will be printed.
The cost of Leaf Live cards is $4.99 each for anywhere from one to nine copies. That drops to $3.99 for ten to 24. Bulk orders of 25 cards or more are $2.99 each.
Instead of having separate lines for different sports or areas, Leaf Live is a catch-all of sorts covering news, entertainment, sports, politics and more. They haven’t said how frequently new cards will be released.
Leaf Live took a long break after its initial launch in 2016, starting up again in the spring of 2018.
