Description

2008 Razor Signature Series is a 200-card draft pick set released in December, 2008. Razor, the predecessor of the modern incarnation of Leaf Trading Cards, signed 42 2008 MLB Draftees to exclusive trading card and autograph contracts for the remainder of 2008 -- keeping them away from Topps' 2008 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects in the process. Fifteen of the first 20 players drafted including the first four picks were all exclusive to Razor. Ironically, two of the better players to come out of the 2008 MLB Draft, Buster Posey and Giancarlo "Mike" Stanton, signed for both Razor and BDP&P.

Each pack will contain one autograph. The last 100 cards in the base set are all autographed and feature the same checklist as the first 100 cards. All autographs are "trapped cuts," that is, in lieu of sticker autographs, each player signed a paper "tab" that is mounted (or "trapped") on the card -- not unlike a cut signature.

The product is not licensed by either MLB Properties or the Collegiate Licensing Corporation (CLC) and as such players are depicted in either high school or airbrushed college uniforms.

Inclusion of Matt Wieters

Razor also signed Matt Wieters, the fifth pick overall in the 2007 draft, to am eight-year exclusive contract that prohibited any other company from producing a Wieters card until after he had made his Major League debut (which he did in 2009). Because Topps is not subject to the MLBPA's Group Licensing Agreement and signs players to individual contracts, Wieters (with the exception of a 2009 eTopps card) did not appear on a Topps card until 2016.

Upper Deck was able to include Wieters in some of their late-season 2009 releases -- their last as a fully-licensed company -- as well as the retroactively-licensed 2010 Upper Deck set. From that point until 2016, these were the only fully-licensed Matt Wieters cards printed. Panini, which has had an MLBPA license since 2011, has regularly included Wieters in their checklists.

Distribution

Ten packs per box, five cards per pack (MSRP: $12.50).
