BGS Submission Result Number Fifteen - 2014 Bowman : Julio Urias Oversized Purple Ice Autograph (6/25) Now Graded Gem Mint 9.5

2014 Bowman Oversized Purple Ice Urias

You can't tell by the picture here but this is one big a$$ card. I picked this up on a trade with Frankie as it was my big get from the trade and when it arrived I knew it would be heading to BGS to hopefully earning a gold banner which would sit nicely next to my other gem mint Urias autographs. For a big card it surprisingly looks void of any problems. With only 25 in existence I sure would love to be one of only a couple to have a 9.5.

A past trade with Frankie pays off some more as this Urias becomes the newest gem mint autograph in the collection of the young phenom.

"Big" gold banner

This was/is my 1st bigger than "normal" card in my collection and even though I wanted it in a gold banner case I would have "accepted" it if came back as a plain old mint 9 just so I could store it better as it just doesn't fit anywhere without worrying about bending it. Well now its in a case and better yet Beckett gave it a solid gem mint 9.5 as all the sub grades earned that grade and the auto of course came back as a 10. 

"Coining" the card or is that "carding" the card to show off its size.

I now have 4 autograph cards of Julio and each one is a gem mint and I couldn't be happier. Thank you again to Frankie for parting with it. It is in a happy home and won't be leaving anytime soon. 

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
