2014 Allen Ginter Mike Trout Mini EXT Variant
A lot of people have shared with me the one reason they do not like A/G is that they experience quality issues when they buy packs and the card's condition is not up to their standards. I guess I should consider myself very lucky that I have had very minimal issues when it comes to that and once again I think this Trout EXT rarity should grade out quite well.
Even I was surprised when I received this from an eBay auction and noticed nothing wrong with it. The only thing I can see that might be an issue is that from top to bottom it is slightly off centered but other than that nothing else looks out of place.
Another gem Ginter of Trout is officially now in hand even though it was a lot closer than I thought it would be.
I expected centering to possibly be an issue but it was not as it earned a 9.5 but it was the surfaces that gave me a slight scare as they checked in as a 9. Thankfully the other 2 sub grades also earned a 9.5 like centering to give this card an overall gem mint grade. EXT variants are not easy to come by especially of Mr. Trout so it's nice that I don't have to find another one if this had scored less than a 9.5.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
