Card of the Day - 2015 Topps Heritage : Mike Trout Base Action Variant SP BGS Graded Gem Mint 9.5
I am slowly becoming a bigger fan of the Heritage brand and landing this sweet looking SP card of Trout was a great acquisition.
Heritage pictures are always of the portrait variety but every year they put in photo variations of certain players in "action" and big names like Trout are always in that group. Mike has had a few throughout the years but those are much pricier than this 2015 version. I still plan to lock down previous years cards but multiple copies of this card came up for sale on the same day and ended on the same day as well so I held out hope that with plenty to choose from it would dilute the market a little and that it did.
Book has this at a high of $80 in raw form but snagging this bad boy that has been certified by BGS as gem mint for just a little over half of $80 was a coup in my opinion.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
