One card mailday (Big card Pirates fans)

I recently went to a card show (didn't have a huge budget since I spent all of my money at the National). Picked up some Phillies cards from the 60s and some small odds and ends but nothing major. I did get one card graded though and just received it back from Beckett. I don't often grade cards but I figured for protection and if I ever decide to sell it there won't be any qualms about condition.

Very happy with the encasement and the grade..

None other then one of the Pirates top prospects Austin Meadows...

Numbered 4 out of 5. This was pulled by my wife and I at the Topps booth at the National. Very fortunate to hit such a nice auto considering we only opened 7 promotional packs. (Also hit an auto or a Yankees prospect Jorge Mateo)  I'm a novice at grading so I literally did nothing to the card stuck it in a card saver and let Beckett do the rest. This kid should be high on the prospect list at the beginning of next year. 

Thanks for reading!


  1. Whoa!!!!! He has a chance to be a top ten overall prospect next year. Congrats on the good grade.
