Encapsulated and graded GEM MINT 9.5 by BGS, with signature graded "10" by Beckett. A super-premium Rookie Card, and clearly one of the single most significant Trout rookies in the hobby. Among the twenty-five copies recorded in BGS’s census reporting, just one example has achieved a higher tier. The Angels' young superstar has placed a dark and magnificent, blue ink signature on the obverse of this extraordinary collectible. The card's BGS condition report: Centering: 9.5, Corners: 9.5, Edges: 9.5, Surface: 9.5. A logo on the card's front declares, "Certified Autograph Issue," attesting to the authenticity of the signature and serving as Topps' COA. The limited-edition piece is serial-numbered "18/25." One of the most important and attention-grabbing Trout collectibles in existence, in Gem Mint condition.

This is a very special piece, standing among the most valuable and sought-after modern baseball rookie cards in the industry. An equivalently graded example of the offered Trout card fetched an incredible $186,580 in Goldin Auctions' Winter, 2019 Auction, making it the most valuable Orange Refractor Trout collectible ever sold at auction. The lofty price result for the Orange Refractor that changed hands in the Winter sale represents a vibrant progression that saw an example realize a little more than $50,000 just eighteen months ago, which was up nearly fourfold from the $13,000 sale price in late-April 2016. Widely acknowledged as a future Hall of Famer, the 27-year-old phenom can be relied upon to continue setting records for eye-popping numbers ... on the field, and for his rookie cards' values!
