Spare me the BS if you don't mind. Obviously this stuff is licensed--but it doesn't give an ounce to the credibility of the product-or should I say products (as in what, 4 or 5 Leaf prospect based products now?). I was a fan when it was just Leaf Valiant and Leaf Draft, but this has gotten way out of hand.
**Disclaimer** This is all my opinion
Not to spite opinion here, but LEAF is a business looking to make money. We can all chose what we like and what to buy, and I fail to see how anything 'Rize' related is going to hamper the hobby at all save for perhaps reflecting poorly on the LEAF trademark. This, other that potential wordsmiths making something out of what BG may have said or implied, is really meaningless. Who really cares? I mean really cares other than to chew the fat? Does anyone really think because LEAF Rize cards are out there that it is going to lessen the value of your 'other' brand cards? Lol, No....
eBay to remove any auctions with the title "Leaf Rize" in them.
If your position has not changed, then why are there thousands of auctions with Leaf Rize in the title?
And why is Rize listed on your Leaf products page if it's not your product, only licensed for another company's product.

To all of this it's fair to say that it's particularly odd that MLB licensing affects prospecting at all given real prospects lack any MLB experience whatsoever.
If there were any logic in licensing at all, player licensing would be most important across all parts of the hobby... but that's another topic of discussion.
