BGS Submission Update Two - 2009 Topps : Clayton Kershaw Ticket to Stardom Autograph ( 148 / 489 ) Now Graded and Slabbed a Mint 9
Original Submission Post
Beckett Book Value : $80
Second result entry and second Kershaw in the batch.
While I did not expect much from this card as in the original post I had this as 3rd on the least likely for greatness and here it is at number two but I did not expect a 9 grade on the autograph. I figured that the card would receive an overall grade of mint which it did but I did not and still can not see any issues with the autograph. Why must Beckett torment me with these non 10 grades for autographs? It really is luck of the draw on who grades what at their offices as I have seen faded autographs get 10's and then this one and others like it receive less than a 10. Sigh...
Well at least the card is mint and not near mint like the 1st Kershaw. Of course with that said I think the NM one is still a "better" card considering it has 3 9.5 sub grades.
