    So, was someone at Leaf advertising these as such at the Natty?

    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?

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/291212871883...883%26_rdc%3D1


    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."

    It's still up:

    For whatever reason, the format of the link changed after a few minutes of being posted. I know, because I've already corrected it, once.

    They could have kept a few and put them in the national packs that they were selling for leaf bucks.

    I would think that the issue would be advertising them as only available there.

    could just be a poor assumption on the person who received them.

    I think this supports Moxacaine's theory that Leaf also gave them out at the National in the Leaf bucks packs or another way, and the eBay sellers probably assumed they're a National exclusive.
    Or.... they're both liars.

    I think it's - most likely - that they're both liars. (As [MENTION=1900]Austin[/MENTION] says)

    BUT - there's a chance some knucklehead was passing them off as exclusive, which seems like it could be a little in the grey area. (No pun)
