Talking 12 Box Case 2012 Metal Poker - Live

Case #170/199 - only my 9th case of Metal Poker this year, but about 65th case of Leaf Poker this year and my 99th over the past 2 years, call me crazy! Since I'm only doing one case, I'll do box by box.....

Base Auto - Williams, Duhamel, Wasicka
LOP base - Violette
Printing Plate - Jamie Gold Base Magenta

Very weak start....but metal is very hit or miss, much more on the miss side than 2011 Leaf Poker

Default Box 3

Base - Scott Fischman, such a lazy signer, "SF", really is that the best you can do?, Vanessa Rousso, Daniel Negreanu at least he's a SP,

First serial numbered card of the case if Dr. Jerry Buss refractor #19/25

World Series Cash Humberto #45/58

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh............

The metal market is much weaker. While there are less cases 199 vs. 249, I think the price point was higher and as such, dealers are not lowering the price. For awhile you could get 2011 Leaf at $400. Now if you can find it it's close to $600. Metal can be had for $500, but at the same price I would buy 2011 vs. 2012 all day long.

The autos are hit and miss on the metal, where as they are always clean on the Leaf base brand.

Default Box 4

Good Examples of quality of autographs

Base Men Master, Bellande, (these two just on't jump out at you) Jose Canseco #33 (his pen appears to have been new, very crisp, no "sliding" and he adds #33 to most)

LOP Refractor #13/25 Violette (great auto)

WS $ - Chad Brown #27/30 (poor auto)

I've found the case hit to be in the second layer, bxes 5-8, so let's see if it holds true, usually a 1/1 or a Brunson. I'd prefer a Chan or even a Chan 1/1!

And who was I looking for????

Not a 1/1 but this is much better than a 1/1 bae card

National Pride #3/5 - Johnny Chan - as featured on the back of the box!

Default Box 7

base - Matusow, Le, Sebok (Joe, get a new pen when 1/2 the auto is missing!)

refractor - Tiffany Michelle #11/25

And another Nice Hit

My RED refractor for the case is the Poker Brat - Phil Hellmuth #4/5 with a nice bold signature. He must have used the pen first and Joe Sebok got sloppy seconds

Default Box 8

Base - mizrachi, Montgomery, Hachem,

LOP Margolis - rack it! I did not get one of her in my last 5 cases

and surprise, surprise a 1/1 Prismatic Gold Refractor Josh Arieh. Great concept and nice card, but $49.99 will take it all day long!

Two what I consider to be "case hits" in this case!

Default Box 9 - Onto Lower Level

Base - Evelyn Ng, Huckleberry Seed, Chad Brown, Esfandiari

And a 2nd RED Refractor Auto - TJ Cloutier #4/5

Actually I would take the RED Hellmuth as a case hit also compared to my first 8 cases....

Refractor #17/25 - Moneymaker, your last name signature is sooooooooo impressive

National Pride - Huckleberry #02/25 - also great to have Old Glory in the background
