Premier Modern Era Investment Piece

There have been few Baseball players throughout history who have captivated the public as much as Mike Trout. Names like Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Derek Jeter could be mentioned, however Trout is simply in a category of his own. People love watching this man play due to his enormous talent and 'love of the game' attitude. Year after year Trout puts up huge numbers and continues to establish his elite brand. Investors world-wide are snatching up his blue-chip rookie cards, like the offered Gold Refractor, with the speculation that Trout will continue to dominate. The '09 Bowman Chrome Gold Refractor is easily one of Trout's most beautiful rookie cards and is virtually impossible to acquire in Beckett 9.5. Only one or two of these elite copies surface per year with the majority being held up within private investment portfolios. This natural beauty possesses four flawless edges which are void of typical chipping. The surfaces are impeccable with zero indents or scuffs present. The card is dead centered and all four corners seem deserving of a higher sub-grade (pin-point sharp). On top of these elite qualities, the card possesses an undeniably pristine on card autograph which has been beautifully struck in blue ink. Since entering the MLB he has dominated in every facet of the game and continues to put up near Triple Crown numbers each season. Mike Trout just signed a record $430 Million contract extension with the Angels and it's actually considered by most experts to be a steal. A few months back we sold a base '9.5' example of this rookie card for over $97,000; we're proud to offer this more elite copy to the investment community free of any reserve. Mark your calendar as this fine-art equivalent investment piece closes on 6/17/2019. An extraordinary offering which is only deserving of the finest portfolio. One of over 17,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 6th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
