I’ve talked a lot about how impressed I’ve been with 2017 Leaf Q over the past few months. For Jose Canseco, they come in three flavors:
2015 Flashback – My favorite by far – simply perfect.
Patch Perfect – Nice large patches, tons of beautiful foil, but no picture.
Memorabilia Autographs – Nice large swatches with on card autographs and lots of beautiful foil, but no patches.
Months before the release, a friend texted me some pictures of Canseco signing several of these before anyone else had ever seen them, and I instantly fell in love.
Those are beautiful, but the 1/1 with gold holofoil? YES PLEASE!
Not shown in the picture is the version numbered to 15. I knew this was going to be an incredibly difficult run to complete. Typically, Topps will have the 1/1, /5, /10, /25, /50 and unnumbered. Not Leaf though …. 1/1, /2, /3, /5, /15. Talk about impossible!
I was able to complete the rainbow (YAY!) with the last one (#/5) coming in this past week. The great thing about this is ALL of them except for the #/15 came by way of people notifying me of them. Thanks to each and every one of you who notify me of these cards. I am extremely grateful for you!
So, without further, adieu, here are the pics of each!
Thanks again, everyone for making an impossible rainbow possible!
