Here’s another question:¬†Would you prefer a Mike Trout Bowman Chrome blue refractor gem mint or base with pristine grading?
The blue refractor is obviously more limited (numbered to 150) and has a great BGS grade of 9.5/10. It’s currently listed on eBay for nearly $21,000 (Click on link to see eBay listing).
But the base autograph while not numbered has a pristine rating 10/10 and it’s listed at $20,000 (Click link to see eBay listing).
