Default Best of Hockey - 2 boxes

Leaf's Best of Baseball has been good to me (though i got kicked on their Best of Football), so I figured I'd try a couple boxes of this.

Box 1
Pelle Lindbergh sketch by Adam Talley
Gordie Howe auto from 2012 Legend of Sports

not that Gordie Howe is a bad hit, but it seems a little lame that they just took a card from another Leaf product (that sells for $125 per box for 3 autos)... I mean, couldn't they have at least found one that could grade a 10?

not to mention i just pulled this card out of a Legends of Sports box last weekend. still, i suppose there are worse cards i could have pulled.


Box 2
Terry Sawchuk sketch by Lee Kohse
Wayne Gretzky auto 1998-99 SP Authentic Sign of the Times 9.5

Much better!

Pretty good boxes, compared to what I've seen so far.

Those sketches, though. Man. I've seen one nice sketch out of about 12 boxes.

the sketches are a little disappointing. i know there were sketches in their baseball and football products, but i didn't hit any... i pulled all Leaf auto cards instead. but so far all i've seen in the hockey is sketch cards. that kind of sucks.

thanks!

you should have seen the baseball ones. After seeing those you'd be thankful for the hockey artwork

If you are moving the Sawchuk mask sketch drop me a pm with what you are looking for price wise. Would love to give it to my dad.

wow, those are pretty awful. i know i'm suppose to pretend that all "art" is equally valid... but it's not. if it looks like something my 6 year old nephew did, it shouldn't be a hit in a $250 box of cards.

but that's just my opinion.
