Card of the Day - 2015 Topps Heritage : Yasiel Puig Base Chrome Black Refractor Parallel (48/66)

Another wild horse has been corralled and added to the collection.

With Kershaw in the fold there was only Puig and Trout left for me to acquire when it came to the big names I was hunting down to complete my Heritage checklist. Trout is still swimming in some stream as I haven't been able to lock down a copy but I was able to nab Puig at the last second on an auction that did not go as high as I expected.

There have been numerous copies previously sold on eBay with most going for over $60 and my ceiling was not that high even though Beckett has this valued at $100.

One fine Sunday night this copy was about to end around 7 at night and the price was well below the highs of the $60 sales so at the last possible second I put in a bid that was lower than what I have been putting in for the other auctions and was pleasantly surprised that I came out on top. Woo Hoo.

Card arrived a week later and as in the picture in hand this card looks primed for a good return grade from BGS which it has been now earmarked for. Now to harness that Trout.


Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.

  1. Heritage refractors go for crazy amounts. Have you seen how much the /5 versions go for. You would have to take out a loan in order to make a payment. People are crazy.
