Card of the Day - 2015 Allen Ginter : Clayton Kershaw Mini Frame Autograph Red Ink Parallel (4/10) !!!

Awhile back I showed off my redemption of this card in its base from aka non red ink. I was/am not happy with it due to the fact that Clayton ran his autograph to the edge of the card which hampers its grade if I chose to send it to Beckett. Well a day or so after receiving that card I saw this pop up on eBay and knew I had to have it somehow for a couple of reasons.

Of course it is "important" to snag any Kershaw autograph on the cheap to continue my goal to having 100 Clayton autographs but the 2 main draws to this were that on this card he did not run his autograph to the edge and 2 it is the red ink variant. While I have a couple red inks from the Heritage brand I have never been able to land an Allen Ginter to call my own as they just don't come up that often.

I debated and crossed my fingers for a couple of days on picking up this card up and hoped no one swooped in and took it before I was ready to get it. eBay was running a special eBucks promotion but I needed funds from somewhere so after a little hustle here and a little hustle there I was good to go. Ended up with this card a week or so later and under the loop it looks to be good enough to earn a 9.5/10 from Beckett and I hope to make that a reality in March when they are back in town.


Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
