March 2017 BGS Submission Result Number TWO of FORTY-TWO - 2014 Topps High Tek Clayton Kershaw Base Autograph Blue Dots Parallel (3/5) Now BGS Graded Near Mint Plus 7.5

Are...you...kidding.... me ????

9.5, 9.5, 9.5 to be topped off with a 7 on corners. When I picked up this card I "knew" this card would gem when I sent in it to Beckett for grading. Under a scope I saw no problems except 1 corner had slight fuzziness but nothing too bad that sub grade shouldn't get at least a 9. Well other than that sub grade earned a 9.5 but it looks like some grading expert at the lab dropped another one of my cards as corners earned a lovely 7 which is not a lucky number here.

I might miss something from time to time but corners is not one of them as that is where I put extra focus on as if they are damaged either I know that going in or I just don't submit the card. Now I have to figure out what to do with this card. I am not going to leave it in this case with an ugly 7.5 attached to it but I don't want to pay for it to be encased in a certified holder. I'll decide in the future but for now I am just irritated.

Dropping my cards AGAIN !!!

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. Ugh. Sorry man, that is a tough one. I'm just not a fan of the grading process. Completely understand its importance, but something like this would drive me bonkers.

    1. Yeah, killing me but it is what it is when you play the grading game. Yes I love the resale value but I also like the storing aspect of grading. Im dialing back so less and less grading for me anyways.
