BGS Submission Result Number FIFTY-SIX - 2016 Topps : Mike Trout Base Framed Parallel (15/16) Now BGS Graded Gem Mint 9.5

2016 Topps Mike Trout Framed (15/16)

I have a 100% gem mint return on all the Topps Framed parallels that I have submitted to BGS for grading and I hope and expect that the streak to continue with this one.

I submitted 6 (4 Kershaw and 2 Trout) cards last year for the full slab treatment and 1 (Seager) this year for raw review and each one came back as a 9.5 with 1 even receiving a 10. Corners and edges shouldn't be a problem here (its metal) so the only thing that would worry me is if there were issues with the surface which I could not see so I look forward to another gold banner BGS. Don't disappoint me.

...and the streak continues.

As stated up above I submitted 6 framed parallels last year and each and everyone of them earned a gold banner. This year I had a Seager submitted for a raw graded and expected a gold banner so I could flip it on eBay and that also came back with a 9.5. So when I put this in the batch that was heading to Dallas I expected to see another gold banner when I looked at the results. Beckett did not disappoint me as it had indeed earned its gold banner.

Even though it did it was a close shave as surfaces came back with a 9 but all the other subs checked out. I don't know what I would do with myself if one of these ever came back with a silver banner but hopefully I will never have to actually deal with that. Ha ha.

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. Classic! Congrats on yet another 9.5...Angeles are lame, but this Trout most definitely is not.

    1. TY. I hate all things Angels EXCEPT for Trout. Great on field and great with fans. Can't deny excellence. I have 1 last 9.5 of the batch for Friday but still more after that to be shown. Woo hoo.
