Card of the Day - 2016 Topps : Clayton Kershaw Base Black Parallel (14/65)

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can... and I finally did pick up a copy of this card that is.

For months I had been trying to acquire one of the 65 copies of this card for my collection but each time I was either out bid or people were asking way too much for it. I have found a new little pocket of "fun" on eBay that seems to be working out for me in recent auctions.

If I happen to find an auction that has a listing for days and has a BIN with a best offer option I will put it on my watch list and if I can't find another at a reasonable rate I will contact the buyer within the last few hours of the auction to see if he really wants to move it or deal with a relisting. More times than not the sellers have been wanted to unload it and this time was no different. After a hour or so of hee hawing the seller agreed to a price that I was comfortable with and I had this in hand a few days later. Borderline gem mint but not sure if I am even going to go that route but a nice card nonetheless.


Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. Nice snag on the /65! I wasn't a big fan of 2016 Topps, but I'm starting to warm up to them. I just picked up a Seager Opening Day, and I really like the look of it.

    1. Also a fan of the base set but I do love me black parallels and I like the black and whites (photo negative) as well. I rarely go after base cards now. I loved how Five Star did but they have stopped doing those
