1992 Leaf Chicago Cubs

The 1992 Leaf is a 528-card set, issued in two separate 264-card series. Each pack contained one black-and-gold parallel card.

The basic card fronts feature color action player photos on a silver card face. The player's name appears in a black bar, edged at the bottom by a thin red stripe. The team logo overlaps the bar in the right corner.


Black Gold

Each pack of 1992 Leaf yielded a black gold coin. A novel concept for the time, the cards are similar to the regular issue Leaf cards except that the card face is black rather than silver and accented by a gold foil inner border. Likewise, the horizontal backs have a gold rather than a silver background. The set is noteworthy as one of the earliest examples of a parallel in collecting.


Gold Rookies

It honors 1992's most promising newcomers. The fronts display full-bleed color action photos highlighted by gold foil border stripes. A gold foil diamond appears at the corners of the picture frame, and the player's name appears in a black bar that extends between the bottom two diamonds.
