Thumbs up Ranking 7 Boxes of Leaf Best of Hockey Opened

So I have posted these 7 boxes as they were completed on here but they are all over the place in different threads. Since I decided that I am going to call it quits while I am happy and possibly even ahead for once (w/ taking sketch sales into consideration) I thought it would be cool to rank the 7 boxes (2 sealed cases +1) in order of my least to most favorite cards to show you guys what I pulled in total.


#7 Not a true rookie card+ not a great grade+ slumping player = my worst card pulled.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

#6 Great player just not the greatest value on this one. These 2 were actually my first 2 cards pulled from this product and as you can see from my perspective it at least got better.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

#5 Solid grade for a rookie card w/ a 10 auto and also one of my favorite players but from a pretty low end set.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

#4 I think there is a good amount of potential with this card, especially with it being pristine. Too bad it wasn't last year.....



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

#3 Yes my #3 favorite card is a Gretzky/ Messier on card patch auto from The Cup! I absolutely love the Gretzky patch on this card and it was so close to a 9.5 w/ a 10 auto! I can't stand how this case scans but it looks great in person at least!



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

#2 This may be the most expensive card that I pulled especially with the way him and his team have been playing this year. This card is going to Beckett to be regraded in a real slab (don't really love my cards being a billboard), after examining with a loop at the shop for a while it appears worthy enough to receive a solid grade.

#1 I absolutely love how clean this card is and the fact that it is the OPC version

Because its slabbed by beckett and its not grade.

If it was a 9.5 i believe it would have been graded like most of the cards in this thread.

Solid cases love the Mario.

Because it was probably slabbed in that unusual manner for a reason and I wouldn't imagine that reason is a positive one. This is the same company that sold an obviously fake Bryce Harper auto from the Best of Baseball product after Beckett refused to grade it so I'd be skeptical if I pulled a big dollar card that, for some mysterious reason, didn't receive a legitimate grade from BGS.

I believe when Leaf/BG submits the cards for this product he sets the min grade for current cards and vintage cards and if they don't meet the min grade he then just has them slabbed like the Crosby. In previous years they were just slabbed authentic but this year it appears he has taken it a step further and turned the cards into mini billboards. I have seen plenty of cards in this type of slab from this years product. The card appears clean enough for me to resubmit and see what type of grade it will get, I mean it's not like it's a fake card or anything. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the card was good enough for a solid grade but he chose to slab it like this for the additional conversation/ publicity on a card that he knew would be shown off.

I got absolutely smoked on every other Leaf Best of product but football was by far the worst! My extra leaf auto things outsold the encased hits most of the time.

Just got my grade back on the Crosby and I knew it looked good. Card graded a 9.5 with a 10 autograph With the way the Pens were bounced from the playoffs, I will definitely be hanging onto this one until next season. I will throw a scan up here once I get it back from BGS.

Very nice regrade, very nice cards!!! Thanks for the update!

Sometimes I feel like BGS stiffs Leaf and their massive thousand card submissions. Send it in individually, or take it to raw grading, and have your grade magically bumped up 1 or 1.5 points!

I agree with the fact it's slabbed by Beckett, could be the card has been 'trimmed' as that was the case with a card I sent for grading and received as such with the explanation.

I don't have it in hand yet but here is a screen shot from my cell of the grades Of course I am beyond thrilled and surprised as like many of you, I was expecting the worst.

I can't get this thing any bigger lol, got a magnifying glass?

For those of you without superhuman eyesight the grades are as follows.

Centering 9.5
Corners 9.5
Edges 9.0
Surfaces 9.5
Final Grade 9.5
Autograph Grade 10
