Leaf will complete the projects already commenced by Famous Fabrics and then will assimilate future Famous Fabrics projects into Leaf’s “non-sport” releases.
“Collectors have spoken over the last three years and we hope that the NHLPA and NHL listen and allow In The Game a trading card license. We have applied for a license and based on the quality of products that we have introduced into the market in recent memory, I hope our licensing efforts are successful. Making this strategic move will allow our group to focus on our core business, hockey cards” said In The Game and Famous Fabrics owner Dr. Brian H. Price. “I would like to thank all of the Famous Fabrics collectors, dealers and distributors who made this brand so successful over the past four years” Price added.
“I am very comfortable taking the groundwork laid by Famous Fabrics and further developing those brands into even greater value propositions for its collectors, said Brian Gray, President of Leaf, “I have every confidence we can continue the creativity and innovation in a way that continues to push the limits of what has been traditionally been provided in the marketplace.”
