A holy grail Mike Trout rookie offering! On the market this month is a jaw dropping 2009 Bowman Chrome Refractor Mike Trout rookie auto which is held firmly within an all-too rare BGS 10 holder. In fact, only twenty-five of the 500 in existence have been awarded the illustrious assessment. This 1st Bowman Refractor Autograph card is widely regarded as one of Mike Trout's most desired rookie cards with a classic 'at bat' image of the young future superstar. At only twenty-eight years old, Mike Trout has already won three MVP awards and has finished within the top three in votes every year he has been in major league baseball. Trout is just fifteen Home Runs shy of his 300th, already has over 1,300 hits and has a career batting average of .305 (well on his way in becoming one of the all-time greats). The offered BGS 10 is stunning throughout and quite honestly wouldn't look out of place in a BGS 10 Black Label holder. Dead centered with faultless edges and unimprovable surfaces. We see zero imperfections to the front and back corners, dagger sharp. The autograph is undeniably pristine, beautifully penned in blue ink and dead centered. All told, Mike Trout is the best in the business and will likely continue to dominate for many years to come which means this card's value will only rise in value. A fine-art equivalent which is only deserving of the finest portfolio. Please see the video highlight for more details on this offering. One of over 14,000 cards, lots and sets up for bid in our 5th Auction of 2020. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
