Card of the Day - 2015 Bowman's Best : Clayton Kershaw Hi Def Insert Autograph (27/50)

... and the 3rd and final Kershaw autograph pick up to offset the 2 in the most recent BGS batch that I was not happy with as the grades they earned were not up to my standards. Being able to swap out 2 autographs for 3 (with a little help from some other card sales) is a big plus in my book and with one already being in gem mint form it's hard to ask for anything more.

That aforementioned gem mint was acquired from a seller on eBay that I have done a lot of business with in the past and a couple days after I picked up that one he listed this one as well. The price was a little high for me as I wasn't going to use out of pocket funds so I contacted him to see if he would lower his selling price which he had no problem with and promptly changed his BIN price 25% of his original asking price. I completed the transaction and had the card a week later. I hoped it would be a good candidate for a gold banner from BGS and other than the small fraying on a back corner I can see no other issues. Plus that issue can only be seen with a loop as the naked eye can't really spot it. Hoping I can reach my goal of 50 Kershaw autographs by the end of the 2016 calendar year and this one makes is one step closer to reality.


Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. Very nice! I'm a big fan of these. So when you get to 50 are you moving on to a new player??

    1. Move on? Ha Ha... Like you can stop. No, I want to be at 50 by the end of the year and I have about 5 more in my que as we speak. I want to hit 100 at some point to say I got there but lets be honest, I dont think you or I will ever stop collecting Kershaw autographs.

    2. I know, I know! Haha BTW, have you seen the Bowman Chrome wrapper redemption cards? I want the red refractor Seager, but seller has it listed at $149...it’s a really nice looking card, but I’m not sure how the values work on those. I may just pick up a base Chrome of Kershaw and Seager.

    3. Ive stayed away from those. I have too much on my plate as I am trying to snag my 9 cards of Kershaw, Seager and Trout from this years Ginter and now that TC is out I have a handful to pick up there. If you do try to get the red I wish you luck. Nice piece to have for your Seager collection.

      Im still hoping the super from 2013 BC shows up someday.
