2018 Leaf Flash Baseball Shimmers with Autographs from Top Prospects


2018 Leaf Flash Baseball marks the brand’s debut in the sport. Like the earlier football set, it’s an all-signature release that has lots of sparkle and color.

2018 Leaf Flash Baseball Overview

The checklist highlights top young players, prospects and 2018 draft picks. Some, like Shohei Ohtani, Ronald Acuna Jr. and Juan Soto, already have MLB experience. Others include Wander Franco, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Jo Adell, Bo Bichette, Nolan Gorman and Jarred Kelenic.

Unlike their regular chromium Metal cards, Flash cards come a speckled background pattern for a different kind of glimmer. That said, color-based parallels run throughout the various parts of the checklist adding various degrees of rarity.

    Those look pretty good. Not a fan of Leaf but these might be worth taking a look at purchasing
