2020 Leaf Metal Draft Baseball brings with it a new checklist for all autographs. And once again, collectors have a couple of options when it comes to box configurations. Traditional hobby boxes have six autographs per box. Jumbo boxes deliver nine autographs plus one-to-one autonomous proof.
Lives up to its name, Draft for 2020 is a big part of the checklist. However, other top baseball prospects can also be found.
Basic autographs make up the majority of the set, but there are some additional posts. State Pride highlights where the players are from. Top picks focus on important trait choices and the place they were taken. 1990 The Leaf Baseball design gets a new chrome makeover with a new crop of players.
Parallels have the usual rainbow. Cards get different colored frames and gradually smaller editions. However, Leaf also brings a few patterned parallels. These also have their own selection of color-based versions, which provides an even more comprehensive checklist. Mojo is a repeated geometric look. Crystals are similar to Panini’s Cracked Ice and Topps’ Atomic Refractors.
The one-to-one proofs found in jumbo boxes come from the manufacturing process. These already come encapsulated in a plate.
