    Wow, Brian, what a concept. People paying good $ for the good cards or "hits" in a product. I never would have thought of that. Ideas like that will revolutionize this industry...



    Having gotten my snarky side out, it is nice to see the Mike Witt signed cards in the product, along with another toughie (Melido Perez). In all sincerity, being able to get certified authentic signatures of tough signers like them is a boost to the hobby. Any chance of a 1987 Leaf Randy Myers? I'm sure there are more than a few of his collectors (or Mets / Reds collectors) that would love a card like that (and again, I really do mean that in all sincerity).

    Also, the buyback card redemptions are all already en route back to us from players...again, good try...

    With all that being said, I agree the 91 buyback unsigned is not as big a deal as 1990..

    Should we have done 1990 again with a new stamp? Too soon I say...

    I working on more obscure guys, Sean...promise...

    My point was that base buyback cards have demand... It will be interesting to see if someone builds the #/5 base buyback set...
    Maybe I need to put a bounty on that?

    Of course I'd love to see Omar included in a bunch new products, especially some high-end stuff... but that's just not going to happen. He'll eventually show up products once in a while but in the meantime I'm thrilled with the chance to chase the cards in this set. I loved the way Pacific had multiple variations of the same card, and I see Leaf Memories in much the same way. I don't mind the buyback concept and in fact, I'm already looking forward to 2014 Memories, 2015, 2016...

    Thanks BG!

    If this were part of the promotion before selling the product, I think it could have been a good idea. However, suggesting/doing so now just reeks of artificially inflating the market for a poor selling product (subset/insert). But if thats your thing, why not just skip the middle man and buy directly from eBay listings. Artificially inflate the market that way while putting the money directly in the pockets of those who are burdened with holding the 'worthless' cards...? In fact, you could repurpose the cards you buy and re-stamp them with another, perhaps different buy back label and call them 'super duper double dip buy back cards'. They could be the industries very first double buy back card and could be inserted in up coming Leaf Memories products as Leaf Memories buyback buybacks. Surely they would be worth something then...?

    Smile BG, surely I jest.

    Why wouldn't you put a bounty on that? That'd be a great move for the release and Leaf IMO.

    Watching the completed listings for the 1/1 cards on eBay, the prices are fascinating, especially for the weirdos who collect the likes of Alvaro Espinoza and Alex Cole (we all know who we are).

    Not really much relation to how good a player was vs how much the cards went for.

    $69.00 - Nolan Ryan (no surprise...can't wait to see the Juan Gone and Canseco finals)
    $51.00 - Tom Brunansky (wow, who knew?)
    $51.00 - Alvin Davis
    $36.00 - Gregg Jefferies
    $31.00 - Sandy Alomar Checklist card
    $21.05 - Frank Viola
    $19.99 - Felix Jose
    $16.05 - Kevin McReynolds
    $11.05 - Andre Dawson (seriously?)
    $10.29 - Hensley Meulens
    $ 7.99 - Mark Portugal
    $ 7.51 - Mark Leonard
    $ 7.25 - Danny Tartabull
    $ 6.56 - Roberto Alomar (what?)
    $ 4.50 - Alex Cole
    $ 1.29 - Zane Smith

    Lots have gone unsold at $7.99 and been relisted lower. Some even didn't sell after being lowered to $4.99 or even $1.99. Some have gone unsold due to being listed at ridiculous prices (Randy Bush for $39.99? Oil Can Boyd for $99.99?).

    If he had a card in the 1991 Leaf set, then yes.

    He did, #239 . I haven't seen any spike on eBay or anything, so just not sure what to look for or how many of them they'll be, etc.

    EDIT: Looks like their will be a /5 and 1/1? Also an auto?
