Default Leaf Ultimate Redemption...redeemed...

Hi,

I bought one of the "mystery memorabilia item" redemptions from Leaf Ultimate basketball. There have been plenty of breaks of this product with only a couple of these redembtions showing up on EBAY. There are a couple of others that were pulled on this forum too I beleive. So...after seeing numerous box breaks and multiple case breaks I figured these redemptions were pretty rare since I have only seen a handful of these redemptions.

There are big ticket items you can pull based on the sell sheet for this product. There are Lebron and Jordan signed jerseys...amongst other high end items. I know in the card game you win some and you lose some but this was pretty dissapointing. I ended up with an 8X10 signed photo of Bradley Beal. This is maybe a $20 item. Would you consider an 8X10 photo "memorobilia"? I may be a little jaded becuase I spent a bit more than this worth but I beleive the redemption card is a little misleading. Your thoughts? Please set me straight if I am not thinking clearly!

Thanks!

-Josh

Yes, I have always considered 8x10's to be memorabilia.

I have always thought of 8x10s for whatever reason to be memorabilia. I don't get how a "mystery" redemption could be misleading.

No, I don't agree that a photo is memorabilia. I've always thought helmets, gloves, shoes, balls etc were memorabilia.

Guess I am wrong...

I think I consider anything outside of cards that is sports related to be memorabilia

Anything that a player signs could be considered memorabilia...

Count me as another that wouldn't consider an 8x10 photo as memorabilia. Even if it is, it seems a little sketchy to include it as a redemption in an $85 box with only 3 cards.

This.

I think anything that a player has signed or worn (or both) is memorabilia.

Photos are definitely memorabilia.

So if a player signs a napkin is that memorabilia?

Of if they sign a spork? or kitchen chair? or my truck tire?

What is really the difference?
