MAIL DAY! Vladimir Guerrero Jr Gold Frame RC Auto (/75)

Oh man... 

I’ve been wanting to post about this pickup since I sent the payment. This is probably my favourite pickup of the year so far. I love Topps Gold Label, but it’s ultimately a product that’s out of my price range. I’ve dabbled with the idea of buying into some breaks, but thought “hey maybe it isn’t worth the risk - I may get nothing but base cards”. So what did I do? I decided to take the money I would have blown on breaks and just grab a higher end card I wanted in my collection instead.

One of the cool things they have in Topps Gold hobby boxes are gold frame autographs. The cards all have a gold border, and are signed directly on card. I decided to bite the bullet and lock in the 2019 Vladimir Guerrero Jr (RC) gold frame auto. It’s numbered out of 75 too, which adds to its value. 

This thing is an absolute beaut’!

Also today, on a much smaller note, another addition to the Jays collection with this Bret Lawrie Topps Triple Threads prospect relic/auto card I scooped for cheap on eBay.
