Card of the Day - 2017 Topps Heritage : Corey Seager Base Autograph Red Ink Variant (10/68)

Heritage is a great set year in and year out but I am on the fence with the look of this year's set as I am not the biggest fan of the borders of the cards. That said I knew I wanted a handful of cards from the set and this is the biggest of the bunch and luckily the 1st I was able to acquire.

My goal is to have an autograph of every home run that Corey hits in his career which will probably put me in at least needing 300 when all is said and done. This card's acquisition also continues a yearly project that I have started for Corey and that is to have the base and red ink autographs of each year Corey signs in this set. Obviously I also hope for them to gem when I submit them to BGS for grading and I feel that this one is borderline 9/9.5 as a couple of corners give me concern. I now have both the 2016 and 2017 red inks and only need the base from this year's set to complete my ongoing project.


Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. Nice red ink auto! Hopefully you can get a 9.5 on it. I just picked up a 9.5 blue auto to go along with last years. I'm not the biggest fan of the burlap background either, but it looks really good in a 9.5 case, and I'm such a completest that I needed the 9.5.

    1. So you must be the one that outbid me at the last minute for it on eBay. haha. Congrats on your pickup. May I ask what your high bid was?

    2. There were a few recent auctions, but it's possible we were going for the same one. I think my high bid was 220, and the card sold for 215.
