BGS Submission Result Number TWENTY-TWO - 2015 Topps : Yasiel Puig Series 1 Base Framed Parallel (4/20) Now Graded Gem Mint 9.5

2015 Topps Series 1 Yasiel Puig Framed /20

Three Puigs in this batch and two happen to be metal based. Go figure. Unlike the Ginter mini though I am confident that this one will come back as a 9.5. I hope the combination of my past history with Puig and these metal framed cards will translate into yet another gold banner card. Puig is low in the hobby right now but if and when he comes roaring back this is a nice little card to flip for something I really want and if it's a 9.5 I might be able to get something really nice. We shall see.

I was a "tad" more surprised that this received a gem mint return as compared to the Trout from yesterday hence why this is showcased after Trout's. While I still believed that both would earn a 9.5 Puig here was slightly less of chance to do so in my eyes and with the grades in for this card you can see it is a "lesser" gem even though it earned 4 9.5's. Trout had 2 10's on his card and there are none of those on this card.

Nonetheless this is a great limited card of a player that is low in the market right now but I think has a great chance for a rebound in 2016.

Quad 9.5's

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. I don't get how do the corners and edges get anything other than a 10 on a card that's in a metal frame.

    1. Exactly. Ive been lucky that all my framed ones have come back as gems but I took a look at the population reports and there are a couple that came back as mint 9's
