While looking for any information on Leaf's upcoming 25th Anniversary Baseball set I stumbled across their Executive Cut Signature card making service. It's an interesting idea and I can definately see why Leaf has taking advantage of the niche market. And to be honest the costs aren't that astronomical. I also found their lone Yount creation that had recently sold on eBay for $95.00.
Basically you submit a certified autograph, or you can get it certified for an additional fee by PSA, to the company and they created a beautiful 1 of 1 card slabbed. The example below is a 1978 Hostess card. An interesting idea for any super fan.
I'm torn whether or not to include this card in the 2015 checklist. Since it is a custom made card. But on the other hand it is listed by Leaf on their production sheet and I also have a visual record of the cards existance. What do you guys think? Should I include this card in the checklist? I'm not bothered by it being a 1 of 1, as I include printing plates and other 1 of 1's in the checklist.
What do you think of on demand custom card making?
