Offered here is easily the most exciting modern baseball card we've brokered in our long history. Few issues hold the lore and desirability of the Mirror Gold production, limited to just 30 copies ever made, and in truth we've only ever brokered a single other copy in our time and that was a PSA 8. Issued in 1996, the entire Certified Mirror production was unique from many perspectives, featuring both a high glossed foil production and exceedingly limited production quantities. Our market was still very much within the grips of the 'dead card era' in 1996, so the thought that a company would produce an issue like these Mirror Golds is something of a miracle. Tilted in the light, the overall aesthetics of the gold foil production take full stage. These cards act like jewelry and glisten in a way entirely unique to the era. The offered GEM MINT example is simply stunning and was the first PSA 10 ever awarded to the market. The quality is undeniably immaculate, boasting corners and edges which are razor sharp and an overall look of a card which exceeds what's typical for the issue by leaps and bounds. The fact that Derek Jeter was to be featured neatly as card #100, still within his rookie campaign for New York, all combines to exude an investment opportunity which simply doesn't surface at this level very often. A true holy grail offering, depicting the very best of our market and seemingly worthy of museum display. One of over 16,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 10th Auction of 2019.
