2018 Leaf In The Game Used Sports Christmas Box Break

I absolutely love this product.  2018 Leaf In The Game Used Sports debuted during the National Sports Collectors Convention last summer.  Collectors quickly realized how loaded these boxes are, and the supply dried up significantly.  Individual box prices went from a starting point of $160 to $270 as of right now.  Sometimes a sealed box will popup on eBay with an asking price of over $300.  Very few dealers have any of this product left.  In fact, the only dealer that I can find who has any boxes left is Steel City Collectibles.  Back in August, I busted two of these boxes at the National, and they certainly didn’t disappoint.

Santa Claus found me a box.  As expected, it totally delivered.  I have yet to find a bad box of this stuff.  Highly recommended, and worth the price.

Here is what I pulled:

Relics

  • Rod Carew/Tony Gwynn Reflections Relic #’ed/20
  • Michael Jordan Enshrined Silver Relic #’ed/2
  • John Smoltz Jumbo Patch Magenta #’ed/4
  • Andruw Jones Fantastic Fabrics Patches Gold #’ed 1/1
  • John Elway/Peyton Manning/Steve McNair/Dan Marino/Kurt Warner/Tom Brady/Steve Young/Joe Montana MVP 8’s Patches #’ed/20

(3) 2018 Leaf Holiday Bonus Pack Break

As I mentioned yesterday, purchasing a box of 2018 Leaf Valiant Football from Atlanta Sports Cards qualified me for (3) 2018 Leaf Holiday Bonus Packs.  Inside each pack is (1) autograph, relic, or printing plate.  Some of the cards are specially made for these packs.  Others are just old inventory they want to get rid of.

During the 2018 National Sports Collectors Convention I pulled out this Babe Ruth/Shohei Ohtani dual relic #’ed 1/1 from a box of 2018 Leaf In The Game Used Sports.  It wouldn’t surprise me if the printing plates used to make that card end up in these packs someday.

Here is what I pulled:

  • Johnny Manziel 2018 Leaf Happy Holidays Auto
  • Mario Lemieux/Jaromir Jagr 2017-18 Leaf In The Game Used Hockey Dynamic Duos Black Printing Plate #’ed 1/1
  • Shinobu Asagoe 2005 Ace Authentic Signature Series Relic #’ed/500

2018 Leaf Valiant Football Box Break

I bought myself an early Christmas present.  Its been awhile since I’ve opened a football product, so I decided to try a box of 2018 Leaf Valiant Football.  I’ve had a lot of luck this year between Topps and Leaf products.  This box came from Atlanta Sports Cards.  In addition to this box, I qualified for (3) 2018 Leaf Holiday Bonus Packs.  More to come on those later.

No major pulls here, but some nice looking stuff.  Every box comes with (4) autographs.  One is graded by BGS a 9.5 or higher.  Too bad Saquon Barkley signed an exclusive deal with Panini.  I would’ve really liked to see him have cards in here.  Even though Leaf’s football products are unlicensed, you can’t really tell that when you have a player from Penn State.  The Penn State uniforms have little to no logos on them to begin with.

Lots of other good guys can be pulled like Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, and Nick Chubb.

Here is what I pulled:

Autos

  • Ronald Jones II #’ed/60
  • Minkah Fitzpatrick Navy #’ed/25
  • Cam Serigne Big Targets Orange #’ed/35
  • Braxton Berrios Take It To The House Orange #’ed/35 BGS Gem Mint 9.5
