Default WOW-Mike Trout 1/1 Rising Stars Game Worn Hat from 2012 Bowman Platinum ARRIVES!!!

I was surprised that the hat came so soon. Topps really came through with this one. It came well packaged and has the mlb coa sticker on the inside of the hat to match. It's the EXACT and ONLY hat that Trout wore during the Rising Stars Game. The hat has some nice wear on the lid and inside. Im pretty excited to have this awesome and seemingly first ever official game used piece available from Topps of Trout. Thanks for the look. Just arrived in the mail-2012 bowman platinum mike trout game used hat redemption 1/1

glad you took a pic of the Ziploc bag instead of the hat. too bad you took it out of the packing now it's valueless forever.

I don't think "well-packaged" when I see a Ziploc bag

WHat do you plan on doing with it? I'd be really interested in seeing what that would get in an eBay auction

lol It was nicely packaged, the huge hefty one zip was kinda funny , but it was secure inside the box from topps. Topps told me that there would be a matching mlb coa on the inside of the lid. *(mlb coa is on the inside of the lid). I'm happy about that and overall, couldn't be more thrilled with receiving this hat I don't plan to sell , but who knows.

Is the COA the MLB hologram? What's the MLB lookup report?

Wondering because I got pants from Ginter Rip Reserve (unfortunately Theriot, not Trout) and they came with a Steiner COA. Would have preferred the MLB lookup but I'll take Steiner.

I'm an 8... It's ridiculous... Growing up playing little league, there would only be one helmet on the team that fit me. My parents finally broke down and bought me my own.

Luckily the 8's are usually on closeout at the mall these days

Oh yeah, nice hat!!

The coa is MLB, The letters/ #'s on the sticker (which is located on the inside of the lid) match on the mlb coa website. I emailed topps and asked them if they could provide any documentation, they said they will look into it and see what they can do. Couldn't hurt, but really unnecessary.

No, the MLB # is the best. You can look it up and it will give you details on the item. I wouldn't worry about a paper COA if you have the MLB hologram on there.

You are correct sir, the info/details are on the mlb authentication website. Thats good enough for me...

I honestly don't know. I have already received a few pmm's from people inquiring, but i guess everything is for sale, for the right price of course.. As of now, i will probably just get a nice display case and put it with the rest of my memorabilia.
