Could someone post a scan of the Rockey Graziano card? Does this card look like it belongs in the set? If I remember the last time I saw this card in a auction catalogue there was something about the card photo that did not match the rest of the set?

I have closely looked at two actual cards of the Graziano in the past; and, I can tell you it's no different than the
other 49 cards in this Boxing set with respect to its front and back. It is card #50 and is printed on white cardboard,
as where all the other LEAF cards in the 1st press runs.

So there are only two known?

And assuming the Graziano had to be included on some of the sheets, do you know which player he replaced?

If you look at my uncut sheet, in the right lowermost corner is Arturo Godoy who, I've been told replaced Graziano on the sheet.
I am not sure if this is fact or a rumor; but, I was told this by a hobby veteran back in 1984 when I acquired my Boxing sheet.

I'm sure there are more than two Graziano cards, I've only seen two. There aren't too many more than that in circulation in the hobby.

I've got a friend that has the Graziano and I've seen it- it definitely looks like it was part of the set.
An argument could certainly be made about the '33 Lajoie not being part of that set design, and the Cobb/Cobb not being part of T206, but in my mind at least Graziano is definitely part of the Leaf set- an much rarer than either of the above named cards.

I once said what you just said regarding this card and I was laughed at. However, I said it before the T206 Joe Doyle error
card was known. Now, I'd say the Graziano and the Doyle error card are equally the two rarest sportscards in the hobby.

There are lots of cards that only 1 example is known of- all the Allegheny's, just to name one. But of all the "blue chip" rarities the '32 ('33 actually) Lindstrom gets my vote for the rarest, with Graziano second. Doyle is a variation (as is Magie) and I'd put it a bit further done the list, but since I have no chance of owning any of these (except the Lajoie) my opinion doesn't mean squat.
Any way you look at it Graziano is very tough, hoping Adam will chime in with an estimate of known examples. I thought it was 5, but could be wrong.
