2021 Leaf Lumber Kings Baseball
Making a return after a popular debut in 2020, Leaf Lumber Kings Baseball features a variety of cards of current and past greats of the game accompanied by bat pieces.
Game Used Lumber includes some of baseball’s all-time sluggers such as Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Duke Snider. The 3,000 Hit Club features legends that are members of that exclusive club like Pete Rose, George Brett and Derek Jeter. Monster Mashed concentrates on sluggers who have hit the longest home runs in baseball history, like Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle and Willie Stargell.
Fall Classic is a six-player bat card set featuring participants in some of baseball’s most glorious World Series. Bench/Perez/Rose/Yastrzemski/Lynn/Fisk in 1975 or Carter/Hernandez/Strawberry/Clemens/Boggs/Rice in 1986 are examples.
Nostalgia rules the eight-player bat card set in Midsummer Classic, featuring legends of All-Star Games from the past, such as Musial/Mathews/Kluszewski/Snider/Mantle/Fox/Williams/Mize in 1953 or Morgan/Garvey/Cey/Schmidt/Fisk/Munson/Yastrzemski/Carew in 1974.
Bat Rack 3 and 4 highlights a dream three for any lineup and a fearsome foursome of lumber kings; Mathews/Killebrew/Snider and Mantle/Trout/Mays are among the former, Williams/Mantle/Musial/Mays and Griffey Jr./Martinez/Buhner/A-Rod are among the latter.

Signature Sticks 1, 2 and 3 features single, double and triple auto bat cards of baseball icons: Ken Griffey Jr., Rickey Henderson, Jeff Bagwell and Ryne Sandberg.
