Last week Leaf stepped in to the on-demand trading card market with the release of Leaf Live. The way the program works is similar to Topps Now and Panini Instant/Eternal where a card is designed based on an athlete or event and it is sold for a limited time. Leaf Live cards are open for a 1-week period and are being sold through Leaf’s eBay store with cards selling at $4.99 with free shipping, larger lots are available.
The first card is Gene Wilder, which has led to some people to be angry over Leaf’s use of Wilder’s passing as a way to sell cards but those people seem to forget this happens quite often like the 2005 Topps Chronicles release, even yesterday my post was a memorial card for Andy Whitfield. I believe that Brian Gray had this card designed out of complete respect for Gene Wilder and in his memory.
The next two cards on the checklist are currently available with #2 Yoan Moncada through today and #3 Dak Prescott through 9/12/16.
