What: 2017 Leaf Pop Century Signed Photograph Update Edition
Arrives: Late September

What’s buzz-worthy: Leaf’s latest autograph product for pop culture arrives with certified autographed photos from the biggest names in Hollywood as well as big names from elsewhere.
As part of the unending pre-Super Bowl coverage, fans will inevitably hear more about a guy who’s not been seen on cardboard much in recent years.
It’s Carolina Panthers tackle Michael Oher — the subject of The Blind Side, an Oscar-nominated film from 2009 that starred Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw as his adopted parents.
Oher was a first-round pick out of Ole Miss in 2009 and was a member of the 2013 Baltimore Ravens, which won it all. But since then he’s battled injuries and was released by the Tennessee Titans before the Panthers came calling. His story being revisited could spark added interest in his football cards.
