The multi-sport release will be called “Pearl” and fans of Panini Flawless will certainly recognize some of the elements.
For starters, Leaf will include gems on some of the cards and the cursive style of the font is definitely much like Flawless, which is a single-sports brand spread across its various licenses, comes in a briefcase and sells for over $1,000.
There’s no word on what the cost will be for Leaf Pearl, but according to the company’s Twitter feed, each card will be numbered to 10 or less and the product will have autographs of some pretty big names on the checklist. Among those scheduled to sign for the product according to Leaf are Nolan Ryan, John Elway, Mike Tyson, Brett Favre, Allen Iverson, Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez and David Robinson.
