Population 1 of 4 - Rare Modern Investment - Must See

Wow! Offered here is an incredibly scarce and beautiful PSA 10 Bowman Sterling Black Refractor Mike Trout rookie card which represents a world class offering of incomparable rarity and market importance. One of only four confirmed examples in the world, this card is virtually impossible to locate in such high-grade and is the first publicly auctioned example on record. It's hard to believe that this card is so well preserved as it is a notoriously condition sensitive issue with its problematic surfaces and fragile edges. The card boasts pack fresh eye appeal and features a young prospect in Trout against an ornate foil American League background graphic. Perfectly centered with untouched corners and dark black borders. In addition, the surfaces are impeccable with zero visual scuffs, indents or other imperfections. Perhaps what's most impressive about this card is the fact that all four edges are virtually pristine and void of wear; an ultra rare quality for the issue. Finally, the card boasts a gorgeous on card autograph which has been beautifully penned in blue ink. Mike Trout owns one of the most recognized brands in Major League Baseball and has put up Hall of Fame type numbers over his first seven seasons. Few professional athletes have performed at such a level to begin their career; many of whom have gone on to become some of the most iconic figures in sports: Tom Brady, Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky. Recently a 2009 Bowman Chrome Orange Refractor Mike Trout Becket 9.5 rookie card sold at auction for over $185,000. We're proud to offer this equally rare Mike Trout rookie card to the investment community free of any reserve. All told, this is a world class investment opportunity, not to be missed. Comes with our highest recommendation. One of over 17,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 3rd Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
