Leaf Draft Retail Autographs Master Set
It's All About Collecting The U!
With over 525 player alumni and staff from the University of Miami Football program represented, I believe my Hurricanes card collection is the most expansive in existence. It includes players that have been inducted into Hall of Fames through practice squad members and those that merely committed and walked away before the season began. Also represented are head coaches, assistants, and other staff members of the program. Along with traditional football cards, I also count similar flat collectables like pocket schedules and ticket stubs.
The Card Album is my personal collection showcase. I originally designed my first website, CardMagnet.info, from scratch in Microsoft FrontPage and used tables to organize things. The site was updated regularly 2009 to 2021. I’m proud to say that I had regular viewers from around the world, and my content was frequently in the top results on Google’s web and image results. The time came to put some new tools and ideas to use, and so TheCardAlbum.com was born.
About Leaf Draft
The first Leaf Draft set, commonly known as “Leaf Draft Metal”, released in 2011 as a hobby only, all autograph product. As stickers were becoming more rampant with competitors, 2012 Leaf Draft was a set comprised entirely of on-card autographs.
In 2012, Leaf expanded its Draft offering to include a retail set that featured a full base set and expanded rookie autograph checklist featuring many players not seen in the all autograph hobby release. These paper autographs included a base version with a red border and a Blue border parallel. Leaf Draft Retail has released every year since 2012.
At least one Miami Hurricane has appeared in the autograph checklist of every Leaf Draft Retail release since its inception in 2012.
