    I agree, [MENTION=2418]George_Calfas[/MENTION], and good god, can you get some consistent scans?? The Thomas looks like it's been through Desert Storm, and the Mattingly and Bonds look like mis-labeled base cards!

    So this was the very first 1993 Finest Refractor ever to receive the BGS 9.5 grade. I bought it in 1998 but being in my younger days I ended up being tight on cash. I sold the card to my good friend Phil Gold but pined over the card ever since I shipped it. In 2011 Phil promised me the Karros as a PhD graduation gift. This past spring Phil delivered the generous gift as promised.

    Subs are on the back: 9, 9.5, 10, 9.5......yes the case needs to be replaced.

    Nice 93 refractors George! Like Hendersonfan said, one of these days I'm gonna pick me up a Piazza. Have a crazy dream of getting a nicely centered no refractor line Piazza but most of the ones I see on ebay either sell way above what I'm willing to pay at that point in time or have bad centering issues.

    just did a quick BGS pop report search on Piazza, 12 cards graded and the highest is a 8.5! six of them to be exact followed by four 8s and one 7.5 and one 6.5

    Crazy that only 55 cards out of 1,105 have received a 9.5 grade (and yes, I recognize that grading is a bit of a crapshoot so trying to just state the fact here). and no pristine 10s. That's less than 5% of the graded population. I wonder what the equivalent would be for PSA? I have a terrible time reading and interpreting their pop reports because of how things get labeled and therefore recorded in their database...

    anyways a couple fun facts while I was perusing the BGS pop report:

    fun fact #1 - the most graded 93 finest card is, not suprisingly, the Junior Griffey AS card. Pop report 44, with five 9.5s

    fun fact #2 - the most graded 93 finest card without a gem mint 9.5 is (drumroll please)...Roger Clemens, with 18 cards graded

    fun fact #3 - the second most graded 93 finest card without a gem mint 9.5 is...yes, the famouse Eric Young, with 17 cards graded

    fun fact #4 - there have been more Eric Young Finest Refractors graded by Beckett than of Kirby Puckett, Mike Piazza, Jeff Bagwell, Ivan Rodriguez, George Brett, Tony Gwynn, Greg Maddux, or Bo Jackson!
    I collect Pedro Martinez, Mike Piazza, Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers prospects and Trevor Bauer (and anything nice that catches my eye)

    If I was into grading, I'd wonder what mine would grade at:

    I've also been looking for a nicely centered Edgar Martinez '93 Finest refractor at a decent price. I've seen a number hit ebay recently, but they're all either way off-center or priced too high for me. Gotta love the thrill of the chase!
