Card of the Day - 2009 Topps Heritage : Clayton Kershaw Real One Autograph BGS Graded Mint 9.0

Oh happy day. Another Kershaw autograph has been acquire and added to the collection. Always a cause for celebration.

Multiple reasons why I wanted to add this specific card to the collection. The first being that all of my Kershaw autographs (other than his rookie card) use more recent photos with his beard and him looking older. I don't have but the one with him in baby face mode. Well this card handles that so that was reason one. The next was that it has all ready been graded by BGS and it is in mint condition. As I've stated many times before I want all my autographs of Clayton in mint condition it at all possible.

The funny thing is that I saw this exact same card a couple months prior on eBay and after the price exceeded my cap I moved on. I guess the winner decided not to pay as the same seller had it up again for sale. Well I was back on it again and at the end of the day it closed at $70 less than the first time it sold. Just goes to show you that off season purchases are usually where you can score some great deals.

Card arrived a few days later with not a issue with card or case. My Kershaw autograph collection grows by one. Woo Hoo
