A Mike Trout Auto: 2016 Topps Tier One Autographs /50, BGS 9.5-10 AU!

This card has been sitting in a stack for months and months despite the fact that it's easily one of my favorite cards and I was beyond thrilled when I won it from eBay on a steal of a deal. The card arrived in a spiffy holder from Topps with one of their redemption stickers keeping it safe, something I was unaware of when I landed it. That certainly helped this beaut achieve grading greatness when it returned from BGS (thanks as always to the great Dodger Penguin for the sub assistance).

My first on-card Mike Trout John Hancock! Numbered 43/50, this baby hails from 2016 Topps Tier One and features a simple shot of the best player in baseball swinging the bat. I like the design of '16 Tier One and the folks at Beckett liked the card enough to bestow upon it quad 9.5s. This is my second Trout signature overall and I have a goal in mind of acquiring two a year of the on-card variety. I have yet to secure one in 2017, so we see how well that goal is going thus far.
