    Didn't BG have a "sneaking feeling" that there would be a second MLB card license, a year or two ago?

    We all know it "can't be talked about yet"
    I'd love to hear some good news but I'm not holding my breath. I'll gladly let you all tell me " told you so" when it happens

    This is not a knock on Brian but I seem to recall something like this being said a year or so ago as well. Anything to shake up the hobby in a positive way I am sure will be welcomed.

    If Leaf had a license IMO their stuff would be so much better.

    Leaf has quality stuff, the lack of logos just kills is though.

    If they had logos resale would double I would be. Maybe even more on some stuff.

    I seem to recall BG mentioning have lawyers looking into using non-airbrushed images but just not the team names in the text portion. Leaf does some really nice stuff and if he can find a legal loophole to the licensing then power to him.

    It depends how you define "logo" (or "wordmark"). Maybe Leaf's lawyeers have figured out how you could show in an image up to half of a Cubs "C" logo or "Dod" in the wordmark "Dodgers" and not be considered in violation of logo or wordmark usage. Test your legal theory with a court case to set legal precedence and you should be free of MLBP lawsuits for logo/wordmark usage.
