1998 Leaf Fractal Foundations is a 200-card parallel brand of the 1998 Leaf Set. Each three-card pack contained two foil base cards (each serial-numbered to 3999 copies), and one serial-numbered "Fractal Materials" card.


18 packs per box, three cards per pack (MSRP: $6.99). Hobby only.

To preview the 1998 Leaf Fractal Materials product, one of fifty different sample cards was included in each dealer wholesale order form. The 50-card leather subset (within the 200-card Fractal Materials set) was used as the basis for this promotional issue, resulting in a skipped numbering system. These sample cards differ from the standard leather Fractal Materials cards in two significant ways: the large "SAMPLE" text running diagonally across the back of the card and the lack of serial numbering on back.

For brevity's sake we are not reprinting the checklist as those cards marked with an "L" below were part of this set.

Fractal Materials

Inserted at a rate of one per pack, cards from this 200-card set parallel the base Leaf Fractal Foundation set. The cards are printed on real "feel of the game" materials. 100 cards were printed on Plastic (P) and each is serial numbered to 3250 copies. Of the 50 cards printed on Leather (L), 1000 serial-numbered cards of each were made. Only 500 copies of the 30 printed on Nylon (N) were made; and of the 20 printed on Wood (W), each is serial-numbered to 250.

Each Fractal Materials card is also available as a die-cut. The first 200 copies of each X-Axis (regardless of material), 100 of each Y-Axis, and 50 copies of each Z-Axis Fractal Material cards are die-cut.

In other words, a "PX" card is serial-numbered to 3250 copies, with 200 die-cut and 3050 non die-cuts. An "LY" is numbered to 1000, with 100 die-cut and 900 non die-cut, and of the "NZs", 50 were die-cut and 450 weren't.

For brevity's sake, each cards Material and Axis designation are listed in the base set.

Z2 Axis

All 200 cards are available in this parallel. Each Z2 Axis card is serial-numbered to 20 copies.
