NEWEST ADDITION: 2008 Leaf Limited Material Monikers Auto /15

When I saw this card on the bizzle, I put in an offer that I didnt expect to go through. Normally I dont buy 2008 DLP autos of AD because the stickers he signed looked awful. I miss the old auto with the "28," and every so often we get one of those stickers. Most of the time we get scribbled crap - only another reason why companies are staying away from the stickers more and more.

This card was an exception. It must have been one of the first he signed, because it is even and clear with no weird lines or loops. These happen pretty often with UD because I believe they require more quality in their stuff, but with DLP they are pretty rare. Also, this set was my favorite from last year's Limited and I like this year's design too. You know when people say the card looks better in person? Well its true, this one almost made me break out my future wife's inhaler. Its just effing pretty as hell.

I paid $140 for this card, but none of it was money out of my account, so I was more likely to offer more for this card than it is worth. Its also the first week of release, so I will put the value at $130.

  1. Honestly, this looks like an absolutely amazing card. I really like the way the signature even kind of forms to the outline of AP. The price would be a little high for me, but I guess that's what you get when you're a player collector of somebody like him.
