Card of the Day - 2012 Gypsy Queen : Clayton Kershaw Base Autograph BGS Graded Gem Mint 9.5 AND eBay Bucks Quarterly Purchase Number Two

As stated in my post from 2 days ago showcasing the Adrian/Hanley duel autograph from Topps Museum there was one more acquisition to show off from my eBay bucks "purchase". While that Topps Museum is a nice little addition to the collection this was the bigger of the 2 from this past eBay quarter. Yup, yet another Kershaw autograph and in graded form to boot.

I can't get enough of Kershaw autographs and with hundreds to choose from there should never be a shortage for me to hunt after. While the Adrian/Hanley card was on a BIN auction this card was a traditional auction with a somewhat high starting asking price. The good thing though was even with that price it was exactly what I had left in my eBay bucks bank. Now to win this bad boy.

I was hoping with the high asking price that it would scare off people but as the last day approached there were 5 people that had the card on their watch list but no one had put a bid in as of yet. As the last minute approached I put in my bid and shortly later I received the email stating I had won the card. Send over my "payment" and a few days later my autograph collection of Mr. Kershaw had grown by 1 with this sweet addition.

Another eBay quarter with 2 great limited additions at zero cost to me is always music to my ears and this time is no different. Nearing 20 Kershaw autographs and I have no intention of stopping. Now it's time to start working on earning more bucks for the quarter that ends in September.

Another gem minty addition for the collection.

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. Congrats! That is a nice auto. Pirates weren't well represented in this years GQ. The only card I've been actively searching is the photo variation of Starling Marte. Great shot of celebrating a game winner.

    1. Pirates for the most part are represented well in lots of product but of course they could be the D-backs. Goldy and.....yeah thats about it.
      I always intend to pick up a non Dodger with eBay bucks but it seems more often than not it always becomes Dodger related.
      Thank you again
