The second of five posts regarding my BGS results from this past Saturday and it only gets better from here on out.
I obtained this great looking card from my buddy Alex up north. Alex runs a great blog and if you get some time you should take a look at it HERE . Great reading.
Once the card arrived I knew it was a candidate for grading. It looked great in my hand and I believed it would at least grade out to a gem mint 9.5 with an outside chance of a pristine grade of 10. Before I turned it in for grading I looked online to see what the population was for the card.
Fourth line down shows that there have only been 3 copies submitted for grading and each came back a gem mint 9.5. I wanted to join this exclusive club. This was the one card of the group of five I was confident would get the grade I wanted and expected. The result :
I love that I still have a good eye for grading. Not too old yet. Card came back as a gem mint and I obviously chose to send it to Dallas for it to be slabbed. I am curious to see the sub grades on it to see how close it was to a 10 if it was at all.
Thank you again to Alex for the card. This card is now number 4 in my graded Puig collection.
