Leaf Showcases First Autograph Images for Upcoming Muhammad Ali Set

Today Leaf posted on their Facebook page the first autograph images for their upcoming Muhammad Ali set. Call them the many faces of Ali:

I was already excited about this set, but these cards have me even more stoked. You've got on-card autographs, each image captures a different part of Ali's complex personality and legend, a very clean design and some great-looking memorabilia pieces. There could be 1000 of each of these cards and they'd still be the cornerstone of many collections.

Even though Ali's signature is clearly not what it used to be, he's one of the most important figures of the 20th century. And this just isn't in the boxing world. I can't wait to see what Leaf has in store for the rest of the set. I'm hoping the base set not only chronicles his matches but Ali's life and history as well.

Leaf mentioned that there are a total of 50 1/1 on-card Ali autographs as a part of the release. Other premium Ali items include cut signatures, fight-worn and event-worn memorabilia and printing plates. There will be one Ali hit in each pack.

Packs, which can currently be found on eBay for about $80, will also include five base cards and two autographs from Ali's opponents, associates and fans. So far Leaf has confirmed the following names for the eclectic autograph checklist: Joe Frazier, Larry Holmes, Angelo Dundee, Roy Jones Jr, Nolan Ryan, Hulk Hogan, Mickey Rourke and Magic Johnson, with more to come. All autographs will be on-card.

Leaf is aiming for a February release for the set, although they have said that this could change in order to ensure all the signatures are on-card.
