Description

1998 Leaf Rookies & Stars is a 339 card set released in December, 1998 by Playoff, Inc. This product was originally intended for release by Donruss in August, 1998 under the name "Leaf Rookies & Chase," but was delayed by the bankruptcy of Donruss' parent company Pinnacle Brands. At the time of Pinnacle's bankruptcy, most of Leaf Rookies & Stars had already been printed. Football card manufacturer Playoff purchased what was left of Pinnacle Brands and negotiated with MLB Properties a temporary license that allowed the firm to distribute 1998 Donruss Signature Series and 1998 Leaf Rookies & Stars.

Because of the novelty of being guaranteed pulling either a serial-numbered insert or a short-printed base card in every pack, Leaf Rookies & Stars was one of the more notable base brand issues of the late 1990's. The later than originally scheduled release allowed Playoff to tack-on 39 additional cards at the end of the set, including several rookies added to the 40 man roster at the end of the 1998 season.

The set contains the subsets: Power Tools (131-160), Team Lineup Cards (161-190), and Rookies (191-300). Cards 131-230 were short-printed, being seeded at a rate of 1:2/packs. The 39 cards tacked on to the end of the set (301-339) were seeded at noticeably shorter rates (approximately 1:8/packs) than other subsets. Several key Rookie Cards, including J.D. Drew and Troy Glaus appear within this run of "high series" cards.

It has been estimated that there are about 4500 copies of each "low number" short-print and 5500 copies of each "high number" SP. Though not confirmed by the manufacturer, it is believed that card #317 (Ryan Minor) was printed in a lesser amount than the other cards in the high series -- about 2000 copies.

Parallels

Each of the 339 base cards are available in the following parallels.

  • True Blue (limited, but not serial-numbered, to 500 copies)
  • Longevity (serial-numbered to 50 copies)
  • Longevity Holographic (one-of-one): The very first serial-numbered copy of each Longevity card is printed with a holographic foil sheen, is stamped "1/50" on the back, and is a one-of-one. Thus, there are technically 49 copies of the regular Longevity parallel and 1 copy of the holographic Longevity parallel.

Convention Parallels

Special parallels of the 1998 Leaf Rookies & Stars set were produced for numerous conventions held in the United States from 1999-2000, similar to the Convention Parallels produced using cards from the 1998 Donruss Signature Series set. These convention parallels were produced by Playoff and it is unclear why Playoff chose an old baseball product for this promotion, as they had neither an MLB Properties nor an MLBPA license at the time. These cards were not serial numbered and it is unclear if parallels exist for all 140 players in the set or if parallels were produced just for specific players. However, there are 5 Ken Griffey, Jr. convention parallels that exist, with each displaying a unique stamp representing its respective convention:

  • Superbowl XXXIII (January 21-24, 1999, Miami, FL)
  • Sportsfest 1999 (June 17-20, Philadelphia, PA)
  • The 20th National (July 18-22, 1999, Atlanta, GA)
  • Superbowl XXXIV (January 26-30, 2000 Atlanta, GA)
  • The 21st National (July 27-30, 2000, Anaheim, CA)

Bold text indicates that this Convention distributed cards with the same exact stamp on cards from the 1998 Leaf Rookies & Stars and the 1998 Donruss Signature Series sets.

Rookies & Chase Insert Promos

To preview Leaf Rookies & Chase, all dealer wholesale order forms contained one sample card from four different insert sets (Freshman Orientation, Great American Heroes. Major League Hard Drives and Standing Ovations). The checklists are identical to those listed below, with the exception of the Mike Piazza Marlins and Mets cards. The promos each feature the large "SAMPLE" text printed diagonally across the card back and a blank area intended for serial numbering on back. Apparently, MLB disallowed Donruss/Leaf the rights to use the word "chase" in a product name, fearing it insinuated aspects of gambling. However, the name was officially changed after Playoff took over Pinnacle's assets.

This 10-card set is printed on foil board and serial-numbered to 1000. However, a parallel version was created whereby a specific amount of each card was die cut to a featured statistic. The result, was varying print runs of the non-die cut cards. Specific print runs for each non-die-cut card are provided in our checklist after the player's name.

To calculate the production figure for the die-cut, simply subtract the figures below by 1000.
