2019 Leaf Draft Football Adds Hobby Blasters to Lineup


2019 Leaf Draft Football cards aim to offer an affordable early look at the year’s rookie crop. It sticks with the same blaster format as the past, however this year there are slightly different retail and hobby configurations.

2019 Leaf Draft Football Overview

This isn’t a complex release. It’s not meant to be. The bulk of the checklist are base cards highlighting players slated for the 2019 NFL Draft. Expect to find a good amount of position players like quarterbacks, running backs and receivers. But there’s also some added depth in a release such as this compared to some other draft football products.

Both retail and hobby blaster boxes are similar in size. Each has 20 packs of five cards. The biggest difference between the two are the autographs.
