Raw Card Review Recap Number Five From Submission Batch Done On Saturday March 6th, 2017 (2016 Topps Now Clayton Kershaw Relic (35/99) Autograph)

The 5th result of the batch and the final Kershaw and autograph overall and one that I wasn't sure how it would grade out even though I was confident of a Gold banner.

I went from not caring/wanting this card when it was first announced the day after Clayton recorded his 1st MLB save to needing it to be in a BGS 9.5 case and now that journey is done.

This is a thick card and they do have a tendency to have condition issues but when I received this back in January I didn't see any major issues with it and I crossed my fingers that it would earn at least a 9.5 and that it did. I am curious what the subs are but I wouldn't be surprised if this was a strong 9.5. This has become one of my favorite Kershaw autograph cards in my collection due to the significance that it depicts.

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. Very nice! I know a lot of these had corner issues, so you did well. Black cards just seem to pop when they're in a slab. Congrats
