Leaf, Peach State bring authentic Masters jacket to Summit

Leaf Golf to sponsor Peach State ‘putting competition’ at Industry Summit
Champion to be featured on 2012 Leaf Golf card – and all attendees can take a picture with an authentic MASTERS green jacket!


CARROLLTON, TEXAS (March 14, 2012) – Leaf Trading Cards (www.leaftradingcards.com) is sponsoring a putting competition at the Peach State Sports (www.peachstatesports.com) booth for retailers at the 2012 Industry Summit. The Grand Prize winner will be featured on an autographed 2012 Leaf Golf card! No one will walk away empty-handed.
During booth hours, each registered retailer will have one opportunity to sink a 20-25 foot putt. Those who do sink it will have a putt-off on Wednesday morning to determine a Grand Prize winner as well as a runner up. The Grand Prize winner will have his/her own autograph card in 2012 Leaf Golf. The Grand Prize winner will also have a choice of either 1) a personally owned golf club from Michael Jordan’s private set, or 2) a Jack Nicklaus tournament used club. The runner up will receive the remaining prize. As a consolation prize, those who do not sink their initial putt will receive one advanced release of a 2012 Leaf Metal Golf autograph card.

In addition, Leaf is bringing to the event an authentic Masters Green Jacket from former member and famed automotive pioneer, John DeLorean. Leaf recently acquired this incredible piece of golf memorabilia and is offering all attendees an opportunity to be photographed with this iconic golf relic.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with Leaf on such an innovative and fun promotion”, said Peach State Sports President Jim Grant. “The release of 2012 Leaf Golf, just in time for the 2012 Masters, will be a big winner for Leaf and our industry’s retailers. We would like to thank Leaf for giving the grand prize winning retailer the once in a lifetime opportunity to have their very own trading card inserted into an upcoming golf product.”

2012 Leaf Metal Golf is a soon to be released product featuring technology which Leaf boasts as the industry standard for technology driven card sets. Featuring on-card signatures of 49 past and present personalities from the men’s and women’s PGA and European Tours, Leaf Metal Golf aims to become the golf product by which all others are measured. With low serial-numbered cards of legendary players such as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player as well as first autograph cards of up and coming Tour stars such as Dustin Johnson, Keegan Bradley, Brendan Steele, Matteo Manassero, Webb Simpson and 2011 FedEx Cup champion Bill Haas, Leaf Metal Golf has something for every golf and autograph enthusiast.

“Leaf is excited to participate in this fun promotion with one of our distributors, Peach State Sports,’’ said Leaf CEO Brian Gray. “I am even more excited to see the putting skills of conference attendees.

At the very least, every retailer who participates will be among the first people to celebrate the return of Golf with an autographed 2012 Leaf Metal Golf card days before release to the general public.”
