I'm finally getting around to cataloging the cards from repack boxes I bought during the season. There's nothing like watching the baseball playoffs while scanning and cataloging cards.
I don't remember seeing any of the 2016 Leaf Babe Ruth Collection on the big box store's shelves, but I found 5 packs in a Fairfield repack box I bought last July. I'm not sure what it means to find a 2016 set in a repack box in July 2016. My first guess is that the set came out early in the year and just didn't sell. Baseballcardpedia.com doesn't mention the set at all; tradingcarddb.com has scans of the whole 80-card set entered in March 2016.
There were 5 base cards and one insert card in each pack. I may not have bought it if I saw a blaster box but I'm pretty pleased by the cards, mainly due to the wide selection of photos, many of which feature Ruth not playing baseball. Of the 20 cards I have, all but two feature Ruth during his Yankee days. The baseball playing shots are generally less than satisfying due to the lack of team name and team logo.
Here are some of my favorites.
