Card of the Day - 2016 Allen Ginter : Corey Seager Mini Frame Autograph Black Parallel (#/25)
Black or Gold?
9 times out of 10 I will always take a black card over a gold card and that is why I now own this spiffy little redemption card for a Corey Seager autograph.
When it was announced that there would be this limited (25 copies) parallel in the 2016 Allen Ginter set I knew I wanted a copy for myself. I had missed on the 1st handful that hit the bay. Probably 5-7 in total and now they were drying up as this was the only one left which happened to be on a BIN auction. I did not want to spend a dime to acquire it but at the same time I had nothing in the Paypal bank so what to do? I looked at my collection and out of all the Seager autographs there was one that I could live without as it wasn't overly appealing to me. The Gold autograph from the 2012 Bowman Sterling set which is numbered out of 50. I know that card comes from the 1st year he had cards done by Bowman and some people would not get rid of it but I love Ginters, I love black parallels and I have multiple copies of Corey's 2012 autographs from the Chrome set which I find more desirable.
So of course you know what I did as I sold the Gold and paid for this which came out as a wash. Once I received this card I entered it into the Topps site and considering I have already seen one of the actual card on eBay for sale I hope that it won't be long till I have my copy.
... and on top of all that eBay was running a special eBucks program and with the purchase of this card it helped finishing financing another which I will show tomorrow.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
