Card of the Day - 2013 Bowman : Yasiel Puig Blue Wave Mini Refractor Variant ( 245 / 250 )

Another blue sparkly card strikes again and this is one of the main ones I wanted to acquire this year.

Bowman this year included super phenom Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers in a couple of insert sets. I am still trying to acquire the Die Cut Top 100 version which is now $100 according to Beckett. I already acquired the base mini refractor for just $5 earlier in the month but I was still looking for the blue wave variant and it was always north of $30 and some going as high as $50. Wasn't going to pay that price but I kept looking.

I missed out on multiple auctions as I refused to pay a high amount and am always bargain shopping. One day I kept refreshing the browser and a seller had just put one up for just $20 on a buy it now. Jumped on it and locked it in. Beckett just came out with pricing and has this card set at a high of $50 so even though I have no intention of selling it is nice knowing I got a good buy here. I'm still trying to complete my blue wave Dodger variant set ( there are five ) but I now have the two major ones in Ryu and Puig.

Depending on how well he does I might even get this one graded as it looks great with no smears or fingerprints and is almost perfectly centered.
