Leaf Revived By Razor (Sort Of)

Credit heads-up to Beckett.

Today at the National, Razor Entertainment head Brian Gray announced that he was bringing back the Leaf brand, which had been last controlled by Playoff/Donruss/Panini.

According to the newly launched Leaf website, Razor is not becoming Leaf. They're still separate companies. They just happen to be run by the same person (Gray) and several of Razor's previously announced sets have been "acquired" by Leaf to be re-branded. All the jargon is sort of confusing, but it boils down to this:

Razor was set to release Razor MMA in the not-too-distant future. Now it'll be released as Leaf MMA.

Also announced was that Leaf has a two-year agreement with Muhammad Ali Enterprises to create sets based on the legendary boxer and pop culture icon. Collectors can expect the first set either late this early or in early 2011.
