Card of the Day - 2014 Topps : Mike Trout All-Rookie Vintage Gold Cup Insert ( 22 / 25 )

I don't see many parallels of insert sets but this thick card falls into that category. Really trying to add some big Trout cards to my collection and this is one of the bigger ones that is not an autograph. The regular card is numbered to 99 and features the current version of the ROY trophy. This one though shows the old aka vintage trophy and is numbered to only 25. A hard card to acquire for sure.

I have only seen four of these sell on eBay and with book at $80 most of them flirted with the $60 mark. Trout cards tend to hold their value which makes it hard to get a bargain.

A seller had this card up on a best offer auction with an asking price of $60. Nope, not going to happen. A lot of back and forth for a day between him an I and we finally agreed on an acceptable price for the both of us. Soon enough this card made its way to my house. Great looking and the corners while one was a little rounded ( which is to be expected with these thick cards ) were nice and sharp for the most part. Important to get as many Trout cards prior to the season before his prices explode again.

Vintage trophy of Trout's well deserved ROY award.
