Hey, [MENTION=1948]Leaf[/MENTION] - were these Gwynn patches being touted as "only available at the National" at your booth? How full of crap is this seller?
FYI - I sent him a legitimate message:
"I just thought you should know that Leaf sold a ton of these through their eBay account a few weeks back. After Gwynn's passing, Brian Gray (of Leaf) knew he couldn't include these in the planned product with them being unsigned.
That's why he stamped Gwynn's birth and death years in the location where the sig would be.
Every copy was a multi-color patch, and there were even differently numbered variations. (like logo patches)
If someone sold you this at the convention under the premise that they were only available then - you were lied to. Many sold as $19.99 - $29.99 BINs."
