September 2016 BGS Submission Result Number FIFTY-FOUR - 2012 Bowman Chrome/2016 Topps Chrome : Corey Seager Base 8x10 Autograph Purple Refractor Parallel (10/10) Now BGS Graded Gem Mint 9.5

2012 Bowman Chrome/2016 Topps Chrome Corey Seager 8x10 Autograph Purple Parallel (10/10)

Unlike other cards that went through the raw card review process this one HAD to go through before going to Dallas to get slabbed. Why? Because of its size which if you want encased is an extra charge which I did not want to spend if I wasn't guaranteed a gem mint return. Hopes of pristine return were dashed but I just love that instead of the traditional sealed label they attach to cards this one earned a sticky instead. Ha Ha. I expect when this comes back that the corners will be lowest of the sub grades but either way I have the only (at this moment) graded jumbo of the Dodgers budding superstar.

This 8x10 even looks more impressive now that is has been encased. Of course with it being purple the wife has already reclaimed it and asked how much can she get for it? Yeah, not going anywhere hon.

When I submitted this for a RCR I expected it to gem and gem it did. I also thought it would have 1 sub grade come back as a 9 which at the time I believed it would be the corners to earn that. I find out now that corners were good enough for BGS to give them a 9.5 but it was surface that earned a 9. Very close to not earning a gold banner but thankfully it did. This is a very unique piece and now that it is safely stored in a thick case I can rest easy that it won't get damaged. 

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
