Despite some legal issues surrounding 2011 Leaf Best of Baseball (that were later settled amicably), the set was a hit with collectors. 2012 Leaf Best of Baseball sees the return of slabbed buybacks but with a slightly different configuration. Every single-pack box still comes with a buyback. Last year, boxes also came with cut signatures. These have been replaced with either an exclusive autograph or sketch card.

Buybacks in 2012 Leaf Best of Baseball are either professionally graded or come in a third-party authentication slab. Options range from vintage players like Ty Cobb, Mickey Mantle and Roberto Clemente all the way up to recent releases featuring Bryce Harper and Yu Darvish. Rookie cards continue to be a major focus of the buybacks, which Leaf has purchased off the secondary market. Vintage packs and boxes are also randomly inserted in the product. Choice vintage hits include a PSA 5 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle and T206 Ty Cobb PSA 6. Modern cards are highlighted by a 1993 SP Derek Jeter rookie BGS 9.5, 1994 SP Alex Rodriguez rookie card BGS 9.5, and a 2011 Bowman Chrome Red Refractor Autograph BGS 9. Even a 2012 Bowman Chrome Gold Refractor Yu Darvish BGS 9.5 made it into the product.

2012 Leaf Best of Baseball autographs come with a new design. Confirmed signers include Ichiro, Pete Rose, Lou Brock, Witey Ford and Jim Bunning.

Sketch cards feature original artwork from Kevin-John. Each is different and subjects include some of the most iconic players in baseball history.

Product Configuration: 2 Cards Per Box
Price Point: High-End Baseball Card
Target Audience: Hit Seekers, Rookie Card Collectors, Vintage Card Collectors, Autograph Collectors, Sketch Card Collectors

  1. It’s a roll of the dice, but how else can you pull some of these NASTY hits! EPIC! Oh, and the ROI is not to shabby either!

  2. there are some nice ones but I’m seeing some pretty bad sketches for a $225 box.

  3. rolled the dice and bought a box. Pulled a 1965 PSA 8 Pete Rose. Really stoked!

  4. I love the sketch cards in this set, I think it’s sweet to have 3 different styles to collect from! I’m very happy with my 3 boxes! And from what I’m seeing half the value on eBay is in the sketch cards. Leaf made another solid set! kudos!

  5. I bought a few boxes in the last few months, but nothing to get my money back until last week. I pulled the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle PSA 5. My best pull ever.

  6. I bought a case and pulled a BGS 10 autograph and card of……

    Bowman gold border Yu Darvish!!!

  7. Nice! Congrats!
