Original Submission Post
Beckett Book Value : $100
Well we come to the fourth and last card from this batch that came back with an 8.5 overall grade and the only reason this isn't the most disappointing is that Julio is not Kershaw and Puig's card had a frayed corner so his grade was expected. On top of all that this card is from the Black collection which has notorious history with issues.
All that comes into effect when it got submitted for grading and this one came back with an 8 on corners. Yikes. I knew it would be an issue but didn't think it was that bad. When I won this card I wanted this to be my crown jewel of Urias cards and sadly it can and will not be.
This like the Puig card will be up for sale on eBay shortly. I will be cracking it open and selling it as a "raw" card and with the combined sales of Puig and this card I will be able to acquire at least one and possibly two autographs that I have my eye on. I might try my luck once again and try to reacquire this card from an eBay auction but for the time being I will be content with my other Urias autographs in my collection.
Looks great in a BGS case . . .
. . . just not with an 8.5 attached to it
