12 Box Case 2012 Metal Poker - Live
1 Attachment(s)
Case #170/199 - only my 9th case of Metal Poker this year, but about 65th case of Leaf Poker this year and my 99th over the past 2 years, call me crazy! :eek: Since I'm only doing one case, I'll do box by box.....

Base Auto - Williams, Duhamel, Wasicka
LOP base - Violette
Printing Plate - Jamie Gold Base Magenta

Very weak start....but metal is very hit or miss, much more on the miss side than 2011 Leaf Poker

Box 2
Base - Chiu, Gold, Esfandiari (the new all time money leader in WSOP, of course winning $18MM in the Big Drop will vault you up a few spots. :D

Base - Violette

Printing Plate - Phil Hellmuth Bracelet Race Cyan, with left over ink on the plate - I have yet to pull a Bracelet Race card....

wooo!! another break! what are your thoughts comparing 2011 and 2012? hows the leaf metal market?

Box 3
Base - Scott Fischman, such a lazy signer, "SF", really is that the best you can do?, Vanessa Rousso, Daniel Negreanu at least he's a SP,

First serial numbered card of the case if Dr. Jerry Buss refractor #19/25

World Series Cash Humberto #45/58

The metal market is much weaker. While there are less cases 199 vs. 249, I think the price point was higher and as such, dealers are not lowering the price. For awhile you could get 2011 Leaf at $400. Now if you can find it it's close to $600. Metal can be had for $500, but at the same price I would buy 2011 vs. 2012 all day long.

The autos are hit and miss on the metal, where as they are always clean on the Leaf base brand.

Box 4
Good Examples of quality of autographs

Base Men Master, Bellande, (these two just on't jump out at you) Jose Canseco #33 :flex: (his pen appears to have been new, very crisp, no "sliding" and he adds #33 to most)

LOP Refractor #13/25 Violette (great auto)

WS $ - Chad Brown #27/30 (poor auto)

I've found the case hit to be in the second layer, bxes 5-8, so let's see if it holds true, usually a 1/1 or a Brunson. I'd prefer a Chan or even a Chan 1/1!

Box 5
Base - Traniello, Baldwin, Obrestad

Refractor - Men master #19/25

And who was I looking for????

Not a 1/1 but this is much better than a 1/1 bae card

National Pride #3/5 - Johnny Chan :)!:flex::D:eek: - as featured on the back of the box!

Box 6
Got my BIG hit, hopefully some solid ones coming up.....

Base - jason mercier, TJ Cloutier (he should give lessons on how to sign), David Pham (he should attend the class),

LOP Base - Rousso

National Pride Erica Schoenberg #18/25

kakman 07-26-2012 11:08 AM

Box 7
base - Matusow, Le, Sebok (Joe, get a new pen when 1/2 the auto is missing!)

refractor - Tiffany Michelle #11/25

And another Nice Hit

My RED refractor for the case is the Poker Brat - Phil Hellmuth #4/5 with a nice bold signature. He must have used the pen first and Joe Sebok got sloppy seconds :p

kakman 07-26-2012 11:11 AM

Box 8
Base - mizrachi, Montgomery, Hachem,

LOP Margolis - rack it! I did not get one of her in my last 5 cases

and surprise, surprise a 1/1 Prismatic Gold Refractor Josh Arieh. Great concept and nice card, but $49.99 will take it all day long!

Two what I consider to be "case hits" in this case!

kakman 07-26-2012 11:13 AM

Box 9 - Onto Lower Level
Base - Evelyn Ng, Huckleberry Seed, Chad Brown, Esfandiari

And a 2nd RED Refractor Auto - TJ Cloutier #4/5

Actually I would take the RED Hellmuth as a case hit also compared to my first 8 cases....

Box 10
Base - Lindgren, wonder where he was going to sign such a Sh*tty auto? Smith, Another nice SP - Greg Fossil man Raymer, he's in my HOF autographers! :)! last one I had sold for a "C" note

Refractor #17/25 - Moneymaker, your last name signature is sooooooooo impressive :(

National Pride - Huckleberry #02/25 - also great to have Old Glory in the background :)

kakman 07-26-2012 11:19 AM

Base - Mercier, Friedman, props to Prahlad for taking the time to make all the letters in his long name legible, Chris M, take a hint! Tiffany Michelle - My favorite LOP :cool:

FOTG - Tom Dwan, only player not in 2011 Leaf Poker, Annie Duke is only player in 2011 Leaf Poker (though they were stickers) that was not in 2012 Metal

WS$ - Marco Traniello #02/22
