By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor
Leaf Trading Cards is keeping 2013 Leaf Metal Draft Football set going.
The company didn’t issue an update set, pre-packaged for hobby shops and retail outlets, but are available for consumers through its eBay store. Collectors can get parallels of Matrix cards for several top 2013 football prospects.
A Leaf Matrix design was used in 2013 Rookie Retro and 2013 Metal Basketball. Football players were featured in 2013 Rookie Retro, but this direct-to-consumers release has a different design.
Leaf posted these cards on Thursday evening and the auctions will run for five days.
Collectors can purchase full sets for a Green Matrix parallel (numbered to 50) and a Limited Edition set.
Gold (numbered to five) and Orange (1-of-1) parallels are available as singles for players such as Tyler Wilson, Montee Ball, Cordarelle Patterson, E.J. Manuel, Eddie Lacy and Geno Smith.
