March 2017 BGS Submission Result Number FIFTEEN of FORTY-TWO - 2015 Allen Ginter Clayton Kershaw Mini Frame Autograph Now BGS Graded Gem Mint 9.5

This card was one of the handful that I had raw graded prior to submitting it for the full slab treatment as I was trying to sneak in the auto but the grader was not asleep at the wheel. Irritating 9 but it is a Kershaw autograph that is an overall 9.5 so I went ahead and had it put into a case.

This becomes my second Allen Ginter mini frame Kershaw autograph card that has received the "lovely" 9.5/9 grade. I still do not understand why an autograph that goes to the edge of a card gets downgraded to a 9. I understand streaking but this type of auto takes another away from the card. Even though I knew what the grade was going to be I still still slabbed it because I love the 2015 color of these cards. All was not lost for this year's Ginter autographs of Kershaw though as I will show off another in a few weeks which makes this one easier to swallow.

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. Now your comment yesterday makes more sense! haha sorry you got the 9 auto, but the card is still 9.5, and it's a beauty. Of course it looks better as 9.5 10, but you still have that gold banner. All good

  2. BTW there is a private Vin Scully signing through Press Pass Collectibles! I'm sure you probably got their email.
