2017 Leaf Metal Draft Football Box Break

If my memory serves me right, this is the first football product I’ve opened since Panini’s NFL exclusive went into play in April 2016.  I’ve wanted to bust a box of football cards for awhile, but refuse to purchase anything from Panini.  At one time I was a big Panini supporter.  I can’t do that anymore.  Not with the shenanigans they pull.  Panini makes too many similar products, is lazy, and has a history of questionable slip-ups.  No company is perfect, but there is just no excuse for some of the garbage they pull.  Topps, Upper Deck, and Leaf should have an NFL license.  All of that competition would create great looking cards.

I settled on a box of 2017 Leaf Metal Draft Football.  When Topps had an NFL license, a player’s Topps Chrome rookie cards were incredibly popular.  Metal Draft Football reminds me a lot of Topps Chrome.  The on-card chrome autographs make up for the fact they can’t use team names and/or logos.  In many ways, Leaf’s unlicensed stuff is better looking than Panini’s licensed products.

Here is what I pulled:

Autos

  • Juju Smith-Schuster Black Parallel #’ed/15
  • Damore’ea Stringfellow State Pride Pink Parallel #’ed/15
  • Curtis Samuel Touchdown Kings Prismatic Wave Parallel
  • KD Cannon
  • Derek Barnett
