Leaf readies promo cards for NSCC
By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor
Another trading card company has unveiled its plans for promo cards at the National Sports Collectors Convention, and this time it’s Leaf with a healthy mix of big names from across several sports with a touch of entertainment, too.
First, the company will be giving away a 10-card set during the show which will include Muhammad Ali, Pete Rose, Vince Lombardi, Nolan Ryan, Cam Newton, Mark Ingram, Stewie Griffin (yep, this guy), Tom Dwan, Hulk Hogan and Jon “Bones” Jones.
Details on how to obtain the cards will be announced before the show and during the show.

For box breaks at the company’s booth, it will have a five-card Metal set including Ali, Rose, Lombardi, Ryan and Newton. One card will be given away at random for each box opened. Each of the metal cards also will have a Silver, Blue, Red and Gold 1/1 Prismatic parallel.
For those doing case breaks at the show, Leaf will provide a Pop Century Blue parallel autograph limited to five or fewer copies.
