The Heritage brand is quickly becoming my 3rd favorite (Five Star and Chrome are the others) brand to collect every year as they have such a variety to chase after. Of course with it being printed on paper and not chrome there is a bigger chance of quality issues so I look for graded copies of the cards I want first rather than raw versions. Thankfully this limited card was already in a BGS case as I didn't want to risk acquiring it raw and then Beckett come back and till me its not a gem.
Copies of this card show up every so often on the bay and go for a pretty penny so I have steered away from them and waited for a graded copy to show up at the right time (aka when I had spare funds) and finally this one did on a BIN auction.
The seller's original asking price was almost reasonable considering past graded sales but I still sent him a best offer to see if I could get him to lower his price. As expected he rejected it but countered with an amount a raw version had just sold for a couple days earlier. Anytime you can get a "high" dollar item in graded form for the same price as a raw version that is a win in my book. Clicked, paid, waited and love the card now that it is in hand. Not a numbered variation/parallel but nice nonetheless.
Gold, gold and more gold
