Leaf clarifies Tom Brady autograph quantities in Leaf Metal Draft

Leaf-Tom-BradyLeaf Trading Cards has clarified the production volumes on some of its Tom Brady autographs after questions about the cards after the company released the cards with corrected stamping.

The cards can be found in boxes of 2016 Leaf Metal Draft. A layer of white foil covers the incorrect serial-numbering underneath the correct numbers, which are foil-stamped.

“They were originally misnumbered. Since they were already signed, we had to renumber. Numbering matches the website,” said one of a few tweets from the company regarding the Brady cards. “We apologize for any inconvenience. Our checklist clearly states print run. This is a non-event from my perspective. … The other option was to remove him from the product. We did what we felt was best for our customers. … It was fix numbering or have them numbered out of much higher numbers which would hurt value more.”
