Card of the Day - 2014 Topps Five Star : Chris Sale Base Autograph (284/399)

I have been searching for a Chris Sale autograph for my collection for the better part of a year. Since it is not meant to be an investment piece I was not willing to get into a bidding war on any particular card but it still had to be in good condition and look good. Time and time again I lost out on cards as my ceiling was set and I was not going to go over it. After all this time I finally was able to lock one down.

The Five Star brand is my current go to for autographs and Chris was featured in the 2013 and 2014 issue. Even with all the copies (he was not one of the short printed players) I could never land one at my price. It took months and months but this one finally was had at my price. Even though he has a very simplistic signature (though I do like it) I am very happy to finally add him to the collection as he is a great young picture on a team that has a reasonable chance to go deep in the playoffs this year. (edit : not so much now)


Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.

    Seriously, that is a nice pickup. On card auto rules

      I am a real snob now when it comes to on card autos. I just wont pay anymore for stickers. I only have 2 left in my collection. They are both of Kershaw and that is the only reason why I kept them.
