Very interesting. I originally acquired this great looking in a PSA 9 case and instead of having BGS raw grade it to make sure it would transfer to a BGS 9 I cracked it open and submitted to BGS direct. Well it came back and though it did receive a 9 as expected it is only .5 from a gold banner. Now all my other black chromes from Heritage of Kid K are in 9.5 cases and I was fine that this wasn't going to have that same distinction I think I will have to at least try to bump it once to see if I can get gold. This card does not pop up very often hence why I was OK with it in a silver case but maybe a grader will see that surface as cleaner than a 9 as the other 9 is centering and I can tell from here that it will never earn a 9.5. Either way I love this card and now only need 2 more of the black chrome Heritages to complete the set of Kershaw.
Close...probably will try to bump to a 9.5
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
