Card of the Day - 2013 Topps Chrome : Mike Trout Base Purple Refractor Parallel BGS Graded Gem Mint 9.5

While it's not a numbered parallel nor a photo variation I couldn't pass up on this purple refractor of Mike from the 2013 Topps Chrome set when the cost was cheaper than what it would be to send it in myself to get graded.

Raw value is pegged at a high of $15 but I would say fair market value for this purple beauty would be in the $7-$10 range and that is just what I "paid" for this particular copy but since it is already been certified as gem mint it made the deal that much better.

While I prefer my parallels to be numbered I welcome this to my collection and since it is purple and Mike Trout I guess my wife also welcomes it into the collection as she continues to claim all purple and Angel cards.

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
