Leaf announces 2016 Spring Expo redemption program plans
By Stephen Laroche | Beckett Hockey Editor
With 2015-16 Leaf In The Game Enshrined Hockey being released in time for the 2016 Spring Sportcard & Memorabilia Expo in Mississauga, ON on April 8, it was only natural that Leaf Trading Cards would put together another strong redemption program for the event.
For each box of Enshrined opened at Leaf’s booth in the corporate area of the Expo, collectors will receive a sealed pack containing either an Emerald parallel card limited to five copies or less or a one-of-one printing plate from the same product.
“We feel this is one of the most value driven and exciting Expo redemption promotions we have ever done,” said Leaf Director of Product Development Gregg Kohn. “Taking such an anticipated release such as Enshrined, and offering an exclusive extremely rare Emerald parallel only available at the Expo is very exciting for us. We hope everyone that participates enjoys these rare cards!”
The Emerald cards will contain pieces of memorabilia, an autograph, or both. Those that choose to bust a 10-box case of Enshrined at the 2016 Spring Expo instead will receive a bonus in the form of four additional packs, giving them a total of 14 extra cards for their efforts.
In addition to the Enshrined redemption program, Leaf will offer a special Jack Eichel Rookie Tribute card. Only available while supplies last, collectors attending the show can bring a coupon from the show’s official magazine and two wrappers to the ticket booth to be stamped. From there, it can be brought to the Leaf booth and exchanged for the Eichel card. To obtain a coupon, visit your local card shop or go to sportcardexpo.com/magazine and download the magazine.
