September 2016 BGS Submission Result Number TWO - 2015 Topps Tribute Mike Trout Base Black Parallel (21/50) Now BGS Graded Near Mint Plus 7.5

2015 Topps Tribute Mike Trout Black Parallel (21/50)

The quality of the 2015 Tribute issue rears its ugly head here as this is borderline gem mint/mint and it all comes down to 1 corner that is noticeable even without the loop.

I tried fixing it prior to submitting and if it can pass muster and earn a 9 on that sub grade then I believe this earns a gold 9.5 banner. Of course I have my fingers crossed as I have an iffy feeling about this one. 

Another day with another Trout card result yet still the same grade and same irritation from me towards Beckett as I swear they dropped  this one just like yesterday's card.

Just like the Ginter this Tribute card earned 3 9.5 sub grades yet was given a 7 on corners. I state once again that I would never send a modern card in for grading with damage on any sub grade that would warrant a 7 as it is a waste of money. Ugh... again.

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. Maybe someone at Beckett read your blog about the corner prior to grading it...

  2. Big brother hard at work huh?
