If only Leaf could get the NHLPA license so they could be a proper competitor to UD. Competition is the only thing that breeds quality.

I don't like these exclusives. Ruins the hobby in my opinion.

It's expecting Goliath to bend a knee to David... Never going to happen.

The licensed companies Leaf is competing with (who have signed big rookies to exclusives of their own in multiple sports) have a clear natural advantage with licensure so it was never going to be a fair fight to begin with. These tactics will not help and will only spead more negativity.

Well....as an American I can tell you that it irritates the hell out of me that Eichel has no auto's on any of his UD stuff. I know the gentleman in charge there at Leaf frequents these boards so my polite message to you is that I don't want any of your unlicensed stuff signed or not. Signing these guys to exclusives pushes you farther away from my wallet whether you get a license down the road or not. You're not competing with Upper Deck. You're shooting yourself in the foot. I'm not alone on this.

^----- x 1000. As an Eichel collector I will never, ever buy a Leaf card. I've also decided that I won't be sending in any UD cards for autos. I refuse to have a sticker placed on my cards. Which is to bad because I have dozens of his cards that need autos. But the sticker is a deal breaker.

I think it's great Leaf is in a little way sticking it to Upper Deck! Sure would be nice to have a Ben Simmons, MJ, LBJ Auto's in licensed basketball.

I am sorry but Leaf makes some of the ugliest products out there. The quality of the cards is pretty questionable as well sometimes. Just my opinion no offense to anyone who buys their products.

Is Leaf making money with these exclusives? They had Lillard in basketball but did some stickers for Panini and eventually he became a Panini exclusive so maybe these guys will follow that path.

so pathetic when unlicensed companies annoy the hell of out us all with this trash.
STOP GETTING ROOKIES AS EXCLUSIVES IF YOU CAN'T EVEN PUT A DECENT LOOKING CARD OUT.


Ben Simmons gets exclusived by UD and has what.... 1 total card made?!?!?! stupid!!!!!!

Lillard was a unique situation that supposedly involved a legal settlement between the two companies over some set/design dispute.

These guys, like Eichel, will most likely never have NHL licensed rookie autos. That is a permanent void that can never be filled. Even if their Leaf deals expire in the future and they start signing for UD they can never go back in time and make rookies autos.

Does Leaf exist solely for the purpose of pissing off collectors?

Feel ya.

I bought a lot of Leaf product in the past, like five digits worth (mostly Benchwarmer) and recently I have been getting in to baseball cards. I'm not a huge fan of Topps so I was considering buying some Leaf stuff. I was even considering selling them my massive non-PC of hockey if they wanted to make more Leaf Best Of Hockey or similar product.

But now they've moved into top spot all time of worst companies ever, ahead of Panini, which is difficult to imagine.

The closest would be too do buybacks or something like that.
