Premier Modern Era Investment Piece

Wow! Presented here is one of Mike Trout's trickier rookie parallels in an incredible Beckett 9.5 holder. The offered '11 Bowman Sterling Purple Refractor is not only ultra elusive with only ten copies in existence but also extremely condition sensitive due to it's fragile edges and hypersensitive surfaces. The card features the young Angels phenom within a semi-circle surrounded by a beautiful purple background. The card displays tremendous attributes throughout with 50-50 centering along with four untouched corners. The highly condition sensitive periphery is void of chipping while the card stock can only be described as 'pack fresh'. The '9' surface sub-grade is harsh in our opinion as we see zero signs of scratching, refractor lines or other imperfections. Furthermore, the autograph is undeniably pristine and beautifully penned in blue ink. Mike Trout is having yet another superb season and seems to be the runaway favorite to win the AL MVP award. Trout is already a no-doubt hall of famer at such an early stage in his career and seems poised to go on to become an all-time great the likes of Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and others. We love the investment future on this card as there simply aren't enough to satisfy demand. Mark your calendar as this masterpiece ends on the night of 8/18/2019. Enjoy!
