Last summer Leaf released 2011 Leaf Best of Baseball which caught a lot of attention, including Topps’ lawyers who filed an injunction to stop the sale of the product due to Topps products being included as buyback cards. Apparently this did not scare off Brian Gray because Leaf is set to release 2012 Lead Best of Basketball, which again will include Topps, Fleer and Upper Deck cards as part of a buyback program.
The set is scheduled to be released March 28, 2012 and each box will include 2 cards and will sell around $200 each. There will be one slabbed or graded buyback card and one Leaf Best of Basketball signed card. The Best of Basketball autograph checklist includes Ricky Rubio, Magic, Scottie Pippen, Bill Russell and Dennis Rodman. Another cool thing is that there will be unopened vintage packs and even boxes that will be included in random boxes.
