Famous Fabrics Inc. - Famous Fabrics ~ Second Edition - 2016 Holiday Bonus


2010
Famous Fabrics ~ Second Edition
Famous Fabrics Inc. / Leaf Trading Cards
USA

I don't know how many of the cards from this collection have been stamped in silver with "Holiday Bonus 2016". There were 18 Quad cards in the original checklist but this is the only football card amongst them and is hand-numbered to 4. Although these cards have been released by Leaf Trading Cards they were originally created under In The Game's Famous Fabrics label and do not carry any reference to Leaf, so I am listing them under Famous Fabrics Inc. I hope that makes sense!
I dislike the practice of one card company, Leaf Trading Cards in this case, buying out another card company and then raiding the archives of that company to release cards that were never intended to be released, cards that were originally overproduced and intended as possible replacements for damaged cards.
The list of football cards in the original 2010 collection can be found here - Famous Fabrics Inc. - Famous Fabrics ~ Second Edition.
