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.



  1. He had a rough start yesterday, but I still think he will be dominant once he finds his secondary pitches and his command. Great addition to the Urias pc!

      Look at Kershaw and his career there.
      Thank you.
      Picked up my crown jewel of Urias Saturday morning and tempted to show off now but will wait as per the norm
