2012 Leaf Metal Draft Baseball & Valiant- Dodgers Prospects Including Yasiel Puig

I just came across these Leaf Minor League Baseball card sets, and to be frank, I know very little about them.  Apparently, they released two different sets recently: Leaf Metal Draft and Leaf Valiant.  They both also appear to have similar checklist.  The main differences appear to be that they look very different form one another, and the Valiant set is scarcer overall.

Usually, I'm not a big prospect collector, but these two sets have me intrigued.

Why, you ask?

Well, these sets include the first Baseball of cards of Dodgers Cuban sensation Yasiel Puig!

Below is the Puig 2012 Leaf Metal Draft Baseball card with autograph.  BTW, all of the cards in both sets are autographed.

BA-YP1 Yasiel Puig SP

Here is the reverse of the card.

And here is the redemption card for the above Yasiel Puig cards that came in packs.  As you can see, a collector would get this in a pack and can redeem them for a yet unknown number of Puig autographed cards.

Here is a redemption for a Puig Valiant card.  Unfortunately, samples of the card have yet to hit the market. 

Yasiel Puig's remarkable stats from his first season in American Baseball are below.

The only other Dodgers in the two sets appear to be the Dodgers first and second draft picks in 2012.  If I missed anybody, please let me know.
