Golf collectors haven’t had a trading card set dedicated to their sport since 2005.

That about to change in 2012 as Leaf is readying Leaf Metal Golf — a set that will feature a number of world-class golfers and will be loaded with autographs, all be signed directly on the cards.

While there isn’t a lot of information out yet about the new product, we figured golf fans wants to know there is something to look forward to in the new year.

The few cards Leaf has released shows Jack Nicklaus with two different autograph cards on a number of parallels. These cards add chase elements in trying to complete the rainbow and also should appeal to general sports fans. After all, it’s Jack Nicklaus.

Upper Deck had the last golf-only product in 2005 — so, it’s been six long years.

As more information is released, we’ll have updates at

    So Leaf just has one design that they’ll use for every sport, ever?

    BG is too busy spending $ on lunch to hire real designers…

    What other set uses this design?
    Not a single set.

    But seriously, at Leaf, we always welcome suggestions as to what you would like to see our cards look like.


    p.s.- Our designer was the creator of several of the most innovative sets of the 1990’s… including Donruss Crusades… He is well regarded in the industry (by hobby professionals) as one of the leading deisgners in the industry.
