Leaf Redemption Mailday

In July I opened a box of 2017 Leaf Babe Ruth Immortal Collection.  One of my “hits” was a redemption card for a Babe Ruth Game-Used Boston Bat Relic #’ed 1/1.  This card was redeemed on 7/24/17 and it arrived on 8/3/17.  Now that is the type of turnaround time all redemption cards should have.  Leaf isn’t known for issuing many redemption cards.  Until now, I had never redeemed anything from them.

According to Leaf, redemption cards were made for a few cards after they realized some of them got damaged during the manufacturing process.  It was easier to issue a redemption rather than hold up the entire product until they printed new cards to replace the damaged ones.  Only a handful of redemption cards from this product have surfaced.  A couple have sold for big money ranging anywhere from $700 and up.  Those people drastically overpaid thinking that the redeemed card would be something vastly different compared to the other 1/1 bat relics that made it into the product.  Cards like the one I received are worth about $200 to $300.  The unknown picture and what the bat piece would look like could’ve driven collectors to pay that much for those redemption cards as well.  I don’t think many will pay those prices anymore.  If you didn’t pull the cut signature, bat barrel, or bat knob, a bat relic #’ed 1/1 is the next best thing.
