Leaf Adds Some Costner

When it comes to Brian Grey and Leaf you never know what to expect and when 2015 Leaf Trinity Baseball hits shelves next month there will be special artistic Kevin Costner autograph cards inserted randomly. The cards are based on Costner’s three baseball movies Bull Durham, Field OF Dreams and For The Love Of The Game. So far only the Crash Davis and Ray Kinsella card have been previews on Leaf’s Twitter page.

My favorite of the three is Bull Durham, who doesn't love the character Crash Davis? I would love the Crash Davis version but I expect these cards to be well outside of my price range. Also, if you haven't seen For The Love Of The Game and you are a baseball nut there is an easter egg at the end where you take a quiz and when you get the answers all correct there is an old unseen video clip of Babe Ruth from the 1920s or 30s that is well worth watching the movie. I watched the movie when it came out on DVD solely to see the Babe Ruth clip.


  1. I guess Brian Gray beat Topps to the punch on this one. Costner was probably on Topps' radar for adding to Archives in an upcoming year to make it way overpriced like they did with Major League in 2014 and Will Ferrell this year.

  2. Thanks for the heads up on this one! If I can snag any of these for under $20 then I'll be a very happy camper, especially the Bull Durham one.
