Critically Important Modern Era Investment

Spectacular offering! Up for auction this month is a Mike Trout rookie card of tremendous rarity and market importance. The offered '09 Bowman Sterling Black Refractor is highly elusive with just twenty-five copies in existence and far fewer having reached the elite Beckett assessment due to 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. The offered Beckett 9.5 example possesses zero wear to the periphery with virtually 50-50 centering. The surfaces are almost pristine with zero typical scuffs or visual imperfections of any kind. Furthermore, all four corners are dagger sharp and seem deserving of a higher sub-grade. 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. Mike Trout is having yet another spectacular season and seems like the runaway favorite to win the American League MVP again. We sold a PSA 10 of this card just over a year ago for over $40,000; we're proud to offer this magnificent example free of any reserve. A world-class investment opportunity which commands attention. One of over 13,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 8th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
