March 2017 BGS Submission Result Number TWENTY of FORTY-TWO - 2016 Topps Gold Label Julio Urias Base Framed Autograph Black Parallel (9/50) Now BGS Graded Gem Mint 9.5
I wasn't in the hobby in the 1990's so I don't remember the Gold Label brand and when it came back in 2016 I was intrigued by the framed autographs as I do love me some metal cards. I snagged this Julio card on the cheap and I think that is because this brand is not overly popular. As with most metal cards I expect gem mint returns when I submit them to BGS and this one was no different.
Unless the card is chipped, dropped, etc it's hard for me to see anything but a 9.5 or 10 on edges and corners and to a small extent centering shouldn't be an issue. Only surfaces in my eyes should be a wild card. Well none of those categories had issues with this card as each one earned a 9.5 to make this a solid gem mint card. This probably will never be a big money card but that is OK in my eyes as it's not always about the dollar.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
