Card of the Day - 2016 Topps Chrome : Clayton Kershaw Base Photo Variation
A surprise purchase by me. Not that I picked it up as I would have eventually as I want all photo variations of Clayton but considering this card just came out at time of purchase and previous sales far exceeded this card's amount I was very happy to snag it so early on.
Topps Chrome came out last month and on right out the gate these photo variations were selling for over $30 with some touching $40 but I have learned my lesson and decided to wait on the sidelines for a few weeks for the price to come down. Well the following day this one popped up on eBay with an asking price of $20 which was already down considerably from the $40's sales. I could have just snagged it at that price but the seller also included a best offer option. I debated on sending in a single digit offer but that seemed too low ball even for me so instead I sent one for $12 expecting to see it rejected or countered. I really just wanted to see where the seller's mentality was on price but instead he accepted the offer and a week later I had the card.
After this card's sale other copies are still going routinely in the $20's so this is a nice little get for me and it's (obviously) heading to BGS for a slab treatment.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
