Leaf Memories of the Candyman

2014 Leaf Memories John Candelaria Buyback Auto /45

I finally broke my eBay silence when I saw this card. I'm a sucker for the buyback autos especially if it is John Candelaria. The card ran me less than 10 bucks so I'm giving myself a reprieve for breaking my eBay no buy November rule. 

How about the uniforms for the Buccos during this time period! Mix in Candelaria's flowing hair and you got yourself an awesome picture. I'm just waiting for Leaf to release a Bob Walk version and the floodgates will open.  I may try to obtain everyone.

Hope everybody is enjoying their Thanksgiving break. I'm off to watch the now ranked WVU mens basketball team take on the College of Charleston tonight. Nice to see the basketball team taking a step in the right direction. 

Thanks for reading.

  1. That's a great card indeed. Just saw a Jim Leyland buyback and thought of you. I'll see how high it goes for !

  2. You should never take candy from strangers.
    Oh wait, you bought it for a sweet price, never mind ;).

    1. For that price it was like taking candy from a baby.

  4. Awesome card. Love seeing Pirates wearing those hats.

    Since Leaf doesn't have their MLB license... this is a sweet way to work around the system. They should issue a buyback autograph product.

    1. I completely agree. That would be a great way for fans to get fan favorite on card autographs. It should be suggested to Panini for 2015.
