DA Drops is back like it never left. After a fantastic weekend of sports, we’re here to show what we have to look forward to this week in sports cards.
I think we’ll do things a little differently this time. We usually go sport by sport, but I think we’ll showcase the companies this time instead.
Grab some packs to rip while reading through this one. First up, Leaf!
Leaf has some baseball for us this week. Let’s check it out!
This Friday, April 27, Leaf is releasing its 2022 Autographed Baseball Edition.
Leaf says this release includes a fun mix of Hall of Famers, current superstars, future stars, and a couple of non-baseball surprise signatures.
Each box will contain one signed official MLB baseball. Each case will have six signed baseballs.
