2013 Topps Heritage Black Refractor (29/64)
Another black chrome of Clayton from the Heritage brand but unlike the 2014 version I am just a little more confident of this one earning a 9.5 from BGS.
While both look pretty centered this one is even closer to 50/50 than the 2014 version. While that one has a potential "fraying issue" this one has no such problem hence why I think I should be adding another gold banner to the Kershaw collection with this card.
Do I love me some black chromes from the Heritage brand. The only thing that I love more is when they come back from Beckett with a gold banner and that is exactly what this one did.
I expected this to come back with a 9.5 above it and that it did even though it was closer that I thought it would be. When I submitted this I thought it would be a solid gem with 4 strong sub grades but BGS thought that the centering was off a tad and gave it a 9. Thankfully that was the only 1 of the 4 to get anything less than a 9.5 as since I already had 1 "bad" black Heritage return I didn't want to have 2.
This is part of a project to own all the black chromes of Kershaw from the Heritage brand which I am still in search of 2 but a sub project is to have them all in 9.5 cases. A difficult project but one worth pursuing.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
