I'm sure many of you remember the Kris Bryant redemption that I pulled back in June. After trying countless times to trade or sell it, I finally decided to redeem it, after the person that owns that sports card department at my local hobby shop, told me that someone got his in two weeks. So, I decided to redeem it, and this card came in:
It's a spectacular looking card, and my first thought was to grade it, because it looked flawless. Of course, I'm no professional grader... Well, I spent about $55, and sent it in for two day grading, so I would know the grade when I got back from camp. On Friday, my Boy Scout Troop had to leave a day early because of a sickness, and we were forced out of camp. I found out the grade on Friday night, just as I was getting home...
And I was shocked! I was really hoping for a 10/10, but I wasn't expecting it. It did not get a black label because of a 9.5 on the centering, but I'm definitely not complaining about not getting a black label. I'm going to the National in Chicago next week, so I'm hoping to sell it there, since the Cubs fans are crazy over Bryant. I definitely don't plan on keeping it, because I would much rather have a Hall Of Famer, over a rookie.
Everything got a 10 except for the centering... Oh well! I've been thinking about a price for this card, and I think somewhere between $500-$650 would be a good estimate, since a 10/10 is about three times the card ungraded. The card sells around $200 as a redemption, and the only one live sold $275 on eBay. Any help on pricing is appreciated!
