In an interesting announcement today Leaf has acquired Famous Fabrics from In The Game. Prior to the announcement, ITG, Famous Fabrics and Sportkings were owned by Dr. Brian Price. In The Game was a hockey only product, Sportkings was a universal sports collection and Famous Fabrics was the non-sports brand. Leaf is taking over Famous Fabrics as of today and agreed to complete all current projects, which based on the FF calendar includes Making of America and TV Scripts.
Earlier this year Dr. Price made a move joining ITG, FF and SK as one company, he also announced a few months ago that ITG has applied for an NHLPA license. With the transfer of Famous Fabrics to Leaf Dr. Price stated that this was a strategic move which will allow his group to focus on their core business, hockey cards. I wonder if this means that Sportkings will be retired or sold off.
