SportKings / Leaf Trading Cards - SportKings Vault (2015)


2015
SportKings Vault
SportKings / Leaf Trading Cards
USA
Unknown number

In 2014 Leaf Trading Cards purchased the SportKings brand from In The Game and proceeded to bury it, with no new releases in over the last eighteen months, despite promising the SportKings G would be issued in time for the 2014 NSSC.
They have now gathered together all the cards that have remained unsold, put them into some sort of order, which enables them to hand-number the cards to however many of each card they have, stamp them in gold with a 'SK Vault' logo and create this collection.
The production run for 2015 Sportkings Vault will be limited to just 140 10-box cases, making for a total of 1,400 stamped autographed or autographed memorabilia cards and 5,600 stamped memorabilia cards. Leaf Trading Cards will not be providing a comprehensive checklist, but I will try and record any of the football cards that come to light.
Notes:  I've tried to list all the football cards that might be included in the Vault series, though I've ignored all the redemption cards and the made-to-order cards. I've included all the 1/1 variations, though it's probably unlikely that any of these will appear in SportKings Vault, and the same might go for some of the low numbered variations too.
For the most part I've included the illustrations as I get them, they're not in any sort of order, but you'll find them identified in the checklist stating at which number illustration any particular card be seen. I will however pair up different versions of the same card. I hope that makes sense.
