BGS Submission Update Eighteen - 2009 Allen and Ginter : Clayton Kershaw Mini Frame Autograph Now Graded and Slabbed a Gem Mint 9.5

Original Submission Post
Beckett Book Value : $80

What better way to finish off the submission posts than to go back to back with Kershaw autographs that also happen to be both Allen and Ginter cards.

I had low expectations for both cards which made the returns that much sweeter. Two days ago I showed off the 2010 A&G and how it earned a gem mint grade and now its the 2009's version that gets its time in the spotlight and claims the number one slot from the 18 card submission batch. What does this card have over the 2010 card? First and foremost the border is not orange. Hate that color. Secondly I just love that the glove is prominent in the photo.

The grades were almost identical with this one not having a 10 in the sub grades like the 2010 version. I have to go over my cards again but I believe this is my 6th gem mint autograph card of Clayton and I can't wait to add another one whenever I get a chance.

... and there we have it. 18 cards shown over the past 36 days. At the present moment I do not have a single card left in my collection that I would like to get graded so it will be awhile till I do another submission. Thank you to everyone that checked in every other day to see what the results were for all the cards. Thank you in general for reading the blog and may you and all your loved ones have a blessed day.


  1. I love the framed autos. The McCutchen versions are some of my favorite autos in my collection.

    1. Same here and I am still searching for my own McCutchen to call my own
