Check mark in the Leaf column.
That's not how I interpret your negative comments in your other thread.

You don't seriously think I'm going to believe that do you? You weren't going to buy any of this. Who are you trying to kid? How would that make you look if you were talking negatively about a product that later you decided to buy? Sounds pretty hypocritical to me.

You know what helps put things in perspective for me? Thinking to myself: "Self, it's 10:30 at night and you're arguing with a stranger on the internet over which baseball card is better. You're a f-cking loser, self."

I bid you adieu, my friend.

Many threads that mwheeler comments in become completely off topic. Takes away from the original topic...

Because it is a tough choice because of the price

Not if I get my 2 cases first. I don't know yet when the case from blowout will be her. I should be opening 2 cases Thursday and the group case break on Friday.

I will post a link when I open all of them.

Pretty awesome set ideas:

"Presidential Opponents"

"Running Mates"

"Forever Linked"


Famous Fabrics Inc. | Presidents Cut Checklist

I'd much rather be buying the singles than gambling though

Good luck Kyle. You will most likely be opening before me. Here's to hoping you don't have to run around in traffic.

Anyone opening our product should know that there will be an announcement made early next week about a prize for the first collector to put the entire base set together.

Details not finalized at this time but it will be fun.

Why does this product not have a tamper proof seal on the boxes sir? Idk but it seems like a product this high end warrents more than shrink wrap lol.

Otherwise beautifull product! Great stuff imo

oval office looks much much better. the design and artwork from the famous fabrics product looks cartoonish and the generic holder makes the card look amatuer. i like that the oval office cuts are slabbed in a professional looking bgs holder, they used an actual photo of the president, and the overall design is a alot more visually appealing

You're obviously attracted to shiny things.




And call me crazy (I'm sure you will), but the holder is pretty much the same thing. It's clear plastic, one has a gold label the other silver. The only difference is Leaf has a Beckett logo that means...... that Beckett slabbed it. I personally love Beckett publications. Their price guide is always on target.

A good amount of 1600 does use photographs of the Presidents.


And to bring up your post on another thread...

That's a perfect comparison. Your opinion is duly noted, now if you'll excuse me I have to get back to the boardwalk.
