If You Build It, They Will Come – Field of Dreams Relics Highlight Leaf’s Holiday Bonus Packs

Brian Gray’s mind was churning while playing in the Team of Dreams game last September.  As you can clearly see below, Leaf has made cards containing pieces of authentic cornstalk from the official Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa.  This is the famous field from the 1989 film Field of Dreams.  These can only be found in the Holiday Bonus Packs Leaf sends out to its distributors.

The set will consists of the following: Actor Matthew Perry, signer Randy Owen, Johnny Bench, Wade Boggs, Rod Carew, Carlton Fisk, Doc Gooden, Rickey Henderson, Reggie Jackson, Paul Molitor, Jim Palmer, Jim Rice, Pete Rose, Ozzie Smith, Bruce Sutter and Frank Thomas.  No Kevin Costner.  Are they gimmicky?  Sure.  But promo packs are made for gimmicks.

Panini’s Black Friday Packs are in full swing.  Leaf’s Holiday Promo Packs are on the way.  I think its Christmas time!
