BGS Submission Update Nine - 2012 Bowman Sterling : Corey Seager Base Autograph Now Graded and Slabbed a Gem Mint 9.5

Original Submission Post
Beckett Book Value : $30

I should have known better not to submit this one. I pushed my luck and it didn't work out.

I already have a copy of this card in BGS gem mint condition that I submitted in the last batch. I came across another one and said why not have two of Corey? I knew the signature was a tad streaky and that it would probably earn a 9 grade. I thought maybe I can sneak by and they wouldn't notice. Yeah, they did.

All the other sub grades came out great so I now have another gem mint autograph card of Corey but this one has the less attractive autograph grade. The reason this one is posted after the previous Bowman Sterling Corey card from Tuesday is that the other one was the limited refractor and if I had to have one of the two come back not perfect I would have preferred this one over that one. Instead they both came back with a slight imperfection grade. Oh well. I tried and it didn't work out.


  1. I never really understand when the autograph grade comes out lower. The auto looks fine. What are they comparing it to?

    1. If you look at the original post i have more of a close up.
      Where his C connects to his S the signature fades a tad hence the lower grade. I have seen where it passes with a 10 but no such luck here.
      Wait till you see Saturday's 9 autograph grade and the reason on it. Plus the player its on...Sigh

  2. I was just looking at this and your fist picture and the second seem to be different card than what you had when you sent to BGS if you compare the autos they are not the same

    1. Agreed and correct. Sharp eye. I used the pic (accidently) from my 1st Seager submission which indeed received a 10 on auto.
