Seventh Card Of My First BGS Submission - Giancarlo Stanton

This card hasn't been taken out of the top loader yet that Topps sent it in, so I think this card will get a 9.5. The surface, corners, and edges all look very sharp. I honestly have no idea about the centering on any card, since I don't think that should be a sub grade. Their is a small smudge on the autograph, so it will definitely not get a 10 on the autograph. Overall, I think this card will get a 9.5/9.

Right on target! This card came in as a redemption from Topps back in March, which came in a trade which included a Julio Urias oversized purple ice autograph. I traded the Urias away To Dodger Penguin about a month ago, but I still have this awesome Stanton in my collection:
Giancarlo Stanton is one of the most exciting players to watch, even though he's only batting .261 on the season. But he hits home runs, and when he hits home runs, he doesn't just hit home runs, he hit's home runs. Do you follow?

The overall grade earned a 9.5/9, just as I predicted, and if you don't notice anything wrong with the autograph, it has a slight smudge right at the beginning. I'm really happy with the grade, and didn't expect anything more from this card. It's numbered only /35, and it's a great looking card! Now, It looks even better with a gold label! 
Thank you for reading!
