Card of the Day - 2013 Bowman Chrome : Corey Seager Base Blue Wave Parallel BGS Graded Gem Mint 9.5
The upgrades continue for my Bowman Chrome rainbow of Corey Seager as I have replaced yet another BGS non gem mint with a 9.5.
In my submission batch back in March I submitted a different copy of this card for the slabbing treatment but it sadly came back with an 8.5 attached to it. Yeah, that wasn't going to work for me. I cracked it open and resold it on eBay and picked up another card. Technically that left my rainbow incomplete but I did have another raw blue wave to send in to BGS in September but that changed when I saw this pop up on eBay.
Why cross my fingers again with Beckett when I can already get one that has been certified as gem mint? Yeah, no reason so once again I sold my raw blue wave on the auction site and after 2 days of back and forth negotiations with the card's seller I was able to lock it down. I have now upgraded 1 of the handful that are/were not gem mint in my rainbow. Only a few more to go and 1 day I can say that I have the complete rainbow in beautiful gold banners.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
