Are all of them In person autos?????? It comes from a refutable seller and it also looks authenticate. It looks like it would grade pretty good and the auto is solid

It's not chrome, it's base.

ENOUGH questions!

Bottom line, bad deal. You overpaid by $100. If it's graded Authentic, it would not go for more than $50. PSA/BGS it doesn't matter since it won't help it's value.

This is not chrome. Chrome has the topps chrome logo on the top left like this card: Miguel Cabrera 2000 Topps Chrome Traded RC T40 Hot L K | eBay

That is a regular topps traded card with the logo on the top right. 2000 Topps Traded T40 Miguel Cabrera PSA 10 Gem Mint | eBay

Also, for a card that was not issued with the auto, you don't want to grade it. The surface grade will get destroyed. The best you can do is to slab it as authenticated.

The correct Topps traded auto card looks like this:

Actually, lots of posters on here do know and they've been telling you probably overpaid. Why does everyone start a "did I get a good deal?" thread and then spend the whole time defending their purchase as if they knew all along?



My quick take, looks like you can buy an immaculate raw card for a $15 or so. Heck you can buy the complete factory sealed set for $40 or so. You can then get it signed TTM via the Tigers for $40 as trogdor said. Why would a raw go for $150 and a slabbed go for $300?
