Default 2012 Leaf Metal Poker 12 Box Case - Live Break!

After opening all the 2011 Leaf Poker I could find, (LMK if you know of any....) I decided to try another case of 2012 Leaf Metal Poker. Let's see how the gamble pays off.

Default Box 1

Base - I. Mercier, Men master

Short Print base - Jose Canseco - now how about the Super Refractor in this box too or at least a Red #'d of 5

You're probably right and it looks like I'm going to break even on my Daizey Dukez case and will buy another today!

telling you, its the way to go...my problem is I get to lazy to list them in a timely manner to maximize the sales....I still do well with vault, might need to buy up some more of 2012 version as well

Default Case #196/199

A very average case, which is why I caution those with a weak heart to stay away from this product at a $500 a case price point, which I know is much lower than the manufacter cost out of the gate, but there just isn't the pop and sizzle and associate collector following as there is with the 2011 Leaf Poker set. But still better than panini!

That Brunson saved you big time. I assume you are done with 2012 or is there a price point that would make this an attractive buy for you?

I was offered a 10 case lot for $4750, but passed, as that is very risky. A few of the big collectors have completed their sets and the market definatley reflects this. Maybe $400 a case and I'm back buying. I might pick up a case here and there for more, as that keeps me from stopping at the local Superstore and buying $29.99 blaster and getting crap

I will continue to buy 2011 Leaf Poker for $45 or less delivered. I found 11 boxes from a case yesterday. Should be here today or tomorrow. It came from a reputable store, but I want to be careful to not buy loose boxes where the case HIT may have been pulled.

Really hoping to get a Brad Garrett ACE numbered of 4 as none have been pulled and I have a guy needing it to complete him set.

Still need a Brunson Heart /2 and Clubs /5.

Yes, without Doyle showing up I was hurting, like opening most Panini and Topps products! There is usually just one BIG hit per case. If it ends up being a Prismatic refractor of someone like Gavin Smith, watched him last night on WSOP on ESPN, no one will ever accuse him of being metrosexual you just pulled a case hit worth less than a box.

Was listening to Antonio Esfandiari on Howard Stern this morning on the way to work, good stuff if you have a chance to hear the replay.

I haven't watched too much of this year's WSOP on ESPN. I will have to tune into some of the replays to catch up. Good luck on the 11 loose boxes..hopefully something like the Garrett is in there.
How much of the 2011 product would you say has been ripped. I think it is odd that not a single one of the /4 Garrett's has been pulled yet.

I agree very strange the Garretts have not been found or at least made public. I know the two most hard core collectors of this set do not have one. I have pulled all the other Aces /4, save Jason Alexander, but never a Garrett.

My hope is all 4 will be in in one of these 11 boxes

My conspiracy theory is, if you notice on Brad's signature on many of his other cards, both 2011 Leaf and 2012 Metal, the pen looks to be running out of ink. Maybe before he got to the Aces, the pen ran out, Mr. Gray went to get a new pen and Mr. Robert Barone (sp?) took off before signing the Aces.

I did email Brian Gray and he says they were signed. Maybe they are with the 2010 Razor Poker Stu Ungar Cut auto that was never seen in public

I don't know of anymore cases out there. I'm sure there are some, but I'd have to guess 85-90% of the print run has been busted, including the 27% I have busted personally
