Card of the Day - 2012 Topps Heritage : Clayton Kershaw Base Autograph
... and the final card that I received from The Dutch Card Guy and the only autograph of the group but one that I have been hunting for quite some time but now I have one that I can call my own.
With this card now in my collection I also have made the decision that all my Kershaw cards do NOT have to be in at least mint 9 condition from BGS as I will no longer sell them off if they come back from them with anything less than a 9. Of course though that doesn't mean I won't still get them slab as I will but just as authentic without a grade attached to it which will make them easier to store. I say all this because this card is borderline 8.5/9 as is but I knew going in it would be a miracle that this would be gem mint as the Heritage brand is notorious when it comes to condition and this bad boy has some chipping issues. I have wanted this card for years and what I will do is submit it to BGS for a RCR and see what it comes back as. If a 9 then it gets slabbed with a grade and if not then just a case.
I want to say thank you again to the DCG for a easy transaction and the great cards. If you haven't come across him in your blog reading take some time to check out his little corner of the world as he is a good guy.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
