March 2017 BGS Submission Result Number ONE of FORTY-TWO - 2016 Topps Update Corey Seager HRD Black Parallel (3/65) Now BGS Graded Very Good-Excellent Plus 4.5

Well the results are in and overall I was/am pleased with the 42 card batch that I submitted but there are a handful of b.s. results that irk me beyond belief but thankfully I have eBay as an outlet to fix said issues.

9.5, 9.5, 8.5 (expected) and . . . 3.5? What the hell? I know I might miss something here or there but no way would I miss something like this. I also put this under the magnifying glass once again and I still see no issues on the surface that the "experts" at BGS think are there. The corners I knew were going to be iffy and I was holding out hope for a 9 on that sub grade but expected an 8.5 and that is what they earned. Well no way am I keeping this in my collection and I already cracked it open and sold it back on eBay for the cost of the grading process and the original acquisition cost of this card. This was an odd batch for many reasons and this is just the tip of the iceberg but thankfully out of the 42 cards 31 of them received a gem mint grade. So only 11 that were non gold banners and not all were terrible... but this one was.

4.5 my ass

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
