There are 3,628,800 potentional spare combinations. I haven't the time to list them all. Just imagine where this leads:

1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5, 1-6, 1-7, 1-8, 1-9, 1-10, 1-2-3, 1-2,4, 1-2-5... See how long that would take.

while there are a great number, that one is too large. 1, 1-2,1-3, etc. is the right idea, but when you get to 2, you begin to repeat ex: 1-2-3=2-1-3 and so on.

The correct number is 1022 spare leaves including a gutter-ball on the first roll.
