BGS Submission Update Three - 2007 Bowman Sterling : Clayton Kershaw Relic Refractor Parallel Autograph ( 81 / 199 ) Now Graded and Slabbed a Mint 9
Original Submission Post
Beckett Book Value : $200
Well this is becoming a broken record that I don't like hearing. Third submission result post and it is the 3rd Kershaw in a row. This card like the Allen Ginter one, I had higher hopes on. I didn't know what to expect on centering and that ended up coming back with a 9 grade and in the end the card itself received an overall mint 9 grade. That was fine by me as I just wanted all my Kershaws to grade out to that. The problem once again arose on the autograph front as like the Topps one this one also received a 9 grade. Again, what the hell Beckett? What is possibly wrong on the autograph?
Also irritating is I think with the 9 grade on the autograph it drops the book value a tad but on the other hand I received this card for free as I won it so I can't be too mad about it. In the end its another mint autograph card of Kershaw for my collection.
EDIT : I wrote these recaps prior to actually receiving the cards but this is the first time that I have had to adjust the post. For some reason the card came in with a 10 on the autograph grade now. Was it a mistake that it was reported a 9? Or was it a mistake that someone put a 10 in the case when it should have been the aforementioned 9? Don't know, don't care. Now I am much happier with this card.
Well that is 3 of the 5 Kershaw cards shown already but thankfully the other two don't make their appearance till much later.
