Centering looks off, but then again most '12 BC autos are.

Honestly though, you might be better off selling it raw, you might not get better than 8.5 for centering, destroying your chances of getting a 9.5.

centering top / bottom and side / side looks off. Better centering then some bowman chrome refractors I've gotten tho. I've gotten reg refractors that are cut off at the names on the bottome lol .. gotta love quality control these days.

If the card is crisp with sharp corners, centering shouldn't be a big deal. Even if centering comes in at a 9 and the rest 9.5, then it's still a Gem Mint.

I personally think, no matter what the condition this card was a great pull! A lot of people would buy this card, ungraded or graded.

Dont bother grading. I have a chrome orange mike stanton 2008 auto that can barely get over $800 because it is o/c. It is absolute waste of money sending it in. No way it gets better than an 8.5 for centering.

Awesome card, but yes, I'd be selling raw.

Great pull though!

You're pretty clueless, but thank god you're not starting threads anymore.


T:B is 2:1= 8.5 at best.

Nice. I wouldhold onto it, but I think a BGS grade could lower the value a bit because of the centering mentioned by the others. Keep it the way it is.

Sweet pull though! If it weren't for Sandy I would've got new boxes by now. Who knows, that could've been mine lol.

If I would have pulled it, it would already be sold.

I agree with this, with that being said I would sell the card RAW. That card with an 8.5 might not get the card it's full potential when selling it. Good luck either way, that's a nice hit for 2 cases let alone 1 box!
