What is funny with something like this is it is a 1/1... but aren't there more than one button on the jersey they got? So is there another button card of his but /3 or /5?
He has 3 1/1 buttons in the entire product. I think the reason we are not seeing more older Hofers with buttons this year is because they exhausted most of their buttons in 2012 NT using the same serial numbering you described /3 or /5. I'm guessing on certain players they are gonna try and spread out the buttons to make them more unique and not completely exhaust their inventory. For guys like Gomez, Harnett, banks, ect, I'm gonna assume they don't have multiple jersey of these guys. So I don't mind that they are numbering some of them 1/1 when we know there are atleast 6 on a whole jersey. It would make less sense with a guy like Albert belle or newer player as I'm sure jerseys are easier to come by of those guys. I place the button and the tag in the same type of uniqueness as you will never see hundreds like a patch or thousands like a jersey made in 1 product. You could also make the argument that the button is more personalized as it probably touched by the player more than any other part of the jersey.
Really? Haven't checked completed listings but I know the first couple went for more, guess they've come down a little bit which is fair. Not a particularly nice patch at all so shouldn't really be going for more than that.
