Default Leaf Originals Master Collection

Since Leaf Originals Wrestling came out it has been my goal to collect the Iron Sheik Ultimate Collection. I have accomplished my goal on the Iron Sheik Alternate Art card, aside from owning each plate, which is probably an unaccomplishable task, I have at least one of each version. I am still in need of the base Black 1/1, but have secured 5 out of the ten red parallels. Also not pictured is a base printing plate that has yet to arrive. I am curious if anyone else has collected all of the cards for a particular wrestler, and if so, who?

Nice Sheik collection!

I collect the Dan Severn cards.

I am one card away from a double rainbow (I have both 1/1's). No printing plates though, just because I don't really care about the printing plates.

Congrats on the great accomplishment! Wish you the best in finding and securing the missing 1/1! I believe there's another poster on here who has one of the Greg Valentine pose collections.

Would love to see the Severn collection as well!

I'll post a pic when I find the missing card.

Would like to complete Ken Shamrock too. I have one of the 1/1's. If I can get the other, I'll try to complete it.

I have all of Valentine except for the black 1/1 which hasn't surfaced yet. I do have to plates though.

Yeah, severely overpriced. If it was like $50 I'd go after that set as well.

Great Sheik collection. One of the more completed runs I've seen on a card from set.

Seeing some of these it looks like a majority of the product has been busted open.

Next Leaf Wrestling Series should be very good. Just hope not too many repeats.

I definitely overpaid for the Sheik black, but it is kind of cool to know you own the only possible set. Sometimes you just gotta say screw it as a collector. I have the Nikolai Volkoff Alternate black as well and may wind up completing his cards just to have the Iron Sheik and Volkoff collections side by side. I am also a huge Heenan fan and am very close on both cards, if the blacks ever pop up for sale.

Have you seen any Sheiks pop up with Iron Sheik auto. I know sometimes he signs that.

Any luck on black Valentine Ty.

Always like good collecting stories. Fill us in.
KoKo card is one of my favorite cards in the set. Kong did a great job on it, very colorful. I like how some Koko did bird wings and has a lot of color ink variations.
