Following in the footsteps of the successful baseball and basketball sets, 2012 Leaf Best of Football brings the hits and buybacks to the gridiron. Every two-card box has both an exclusive Leaf autograph and a high-end buyback card.

Buybacks are a mix of slabbed and graded football cards. Types of cards include classic rookie cards, vintage cards, autographs, rare inserts, game-used and autographed game-used cards. Collectors can also look for slabbed autographs that have been authenticated by a third-party service like PSA/DNA. 2012 Leaf Best of Football has redemptions for vintage packs as well.

Among the buybacks slated for 2012 Leaf Best of Football are a BGS 9.5 2011 Topps Chrome Cam Newton Autographed Superfractor, a BGS 10 1998 SP Authentic Peyton Manning rookie, a BGS 9.5 1981 Topps Joe Montana rookie and a BVG 7 1965 Topps Joe Namath rookie.

The Leaf Best of Football Autographs have a similar design to those inserted in the company's recent Best of Baseball and Best of Basketball sets. Signers include Barry Sanders and Deion Sanders.

  1. I really like this much more than the best of baseball.My box yielded a 2008 national treasures NFL patch autograph of Emmitt Smith.BGS graded 8.5/10 auto.Iv’e seen other boxes opened and the hits were decent as well.

  2. So Far so Good.

    Just can’t find a Checklist for this product… I have checked Leaf and so far this product has not been posted on their website.

    Does anyone know where a checklist can be found for this product?
