2013 Topps Tribute Buster Posey Autograph /25
This is another border line card in my mind on whether it will receive a 9 or a 9.5. The autograph is crisp so I see no issue there but where I have pause on it earning a gem mint grade is the top left hand corner is slightly frayed. With the naked eye you can't see anything but under the loop you can see the "damage". My belief is if the corners hold to a sub grade of 9 then it earns a gem mint overall grade as I see nothing else wrong with the card.
While I was right about the corners as they did receive a less than mint grade the other 3 sub grades all received a 9. Not a single 9.5 to be seen on this card and I thought it had an outside chance of an overall 9.5. As with the Banks card I had already earmarked this card for an Instagram razz as I am moving on from most non Dodger players and Buster here definitely falls in that category. With that said this card has already been cracked open and is waiting its turn in the razz que line as I hope to recoup some funds and use it for other things such as Christmas gifts. So at least a Giant player is good for something. Ha Ha.
Solid 9 soon to be cracked and resold.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
