Card of the Day - 2013 Allen and Ginter : Josh Hamilton Mini Framed Autograph Red Ink Variant ( 9 / 10 )

Time again to reacquire another autograph of a player that I once had an autograph ball of. I was on the lookout for a Josh card and finally locked into this rare beauty.

I love these red ink variants that Allen and Ginter comes out with but with the rarity they are hard to get your hands on unless your budget is limitless. Of course with that said this is now my second one in my collection as I picked up the Ryan Braun a couple weeks ago. Just like Ryan I am buying low here with Josh. Both players at one time were on top of the hobby world but both have fallen for the time being. Perfect chance to pounce on this rare card at a lower than normal price.

There is no book on these so I went with my gut feeling on it and set myself a limit. The auction came no where near that limit and the card only cost $10 more than what I sold his autographed ball for. Another nice swap in my eyes and for my collection.

I rather have had an autograph card of Josh in his Texas days but the red ink really goes well with his Angels uniform here. A great looking card for the collection.
