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.
