I Swear I'm not Sponsored by Leaf

2015 Leaf Trinity Ke'Bryan Hayes /10

A few years back I went through a stretch where I was adding Leaf Trinity autos on a regular basis. So many big names for the fraction of the price. The above card only cost me $3.25 on eBay! 

If you are not familiar with Trinity it is basically all the big prospects minus the Topps license. Most of the low numbered cards are either personalized like above or feature big patches. For this Hayes you get a nice big area for personalization and an on card auto.  

Hayes has been a top 5 prospect in the Pirates system since he was drafted. His cards are crazy cheap so I've been adding a lot lately.  This purchase was part of a bigger lot where I picked up 8 different autos. The average price per card was around $4 so I thought it was worth the risk. 

Thanks for reading! Go check out some Trinity cards.

  1. Yeah, I love me some Trinity cards. I picked up quite a few in the past couple of years, but none of the Cubs prospects I snagged have panned out yet. I'm a prospector at heart!

  3. I've seen lots of Alex verdugo trinity cards, but unfortunately they are all priced at a premium.

    1. That is pretty rare for a Leaf card. Usually even premium prices for them are pretty manageable. Verdugo is pretty hot right now, though. That was the case with Austin Meadows the last few years, but he got hurt and prices came down.

  4. Low #'d & cool inscription. If this guy becomes the next Cutch, you're gonna be rich.

    1. Ha...It would be nice for another Pirate prosect to blossom into a superstar. Marte is the only one to really come close.

  5. That's a great deal at $3.25! I've seen a few personal inscriptions like this, might have to get one eventually.

    1. Some are kind of cheesy, but if the price is right they make for an interesting addition.
