2013 Bowman Chrome Draft Pick Autographs Gold Refractor #AJ Aaron Judge Rookie Autograph card is as close to perfection as it gets, and couldn't be more timely. Not only is this a rare Gold Refractor edition, but it was the first off the line, numbered #01/50. Graded overall BGS PRISTINE 10, near-immaculate sub-grades feature: Centering 10, Corners 9.5, Edges 10, Surface 10, with a perfect 10 Autograph - only Pop 1 of 3 for this issue. Babe Ruth was often referred to by observers as "larger than life," a fitting description as well for the 6'7" behemoth Judge, for whom the average baseball bat looks like a child's toy as he confidently strides to the plate. Though in just his 6th full MLB season, Aaron has already earned his place next to the Bambino in New York Yankees folklore with his 60th home run of the 2022 season on September 20, as he sets his sights on Roger Maris' American League record of 61. To say this card has great investment potential is an understatement; first, Chrome Refractors of any kind remain among the most popular collectibles in the hobby. In addition, Judge has reached his current career mark of 218 homers in far fewer games than both Barry Bonds and Hank Aaron reached the same plateau, putting the Pinstripe phenom on a potential path to legendary status.
