Comments: This card was purchased shortly after Gillick was voted into the Hall in May, 2011 from another HOF collector and hobby friend Donato DiVecchia. He explained the card was purchased directly from the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and graded. Later on in the year, more raw examples showed up on eBay and I won a group of TEN for $60 inc. S&H. I've picked out the best examples and will be shipping them off to PSA - maybe I'll score a perfect-10!

UPDATE: In late May, 2013 I sent PSA a group of 175 raw cards that I had purchased at shows and on eBay over the course of several years for grading/authentication. I waited two plus months for the submission and during that time decided to have a little fun. Normally, I get the email from PSA indicating grades are available and I go online to review the results. When I receive the package I open it up look through the cards and start the scanning process. The entertainment ends there. This time I decided to do things a little differently but it would take extreme discipline. I didn't go online to look at the grades and the package arrived for pickup on August 23, 2013. I asked my wife to open the box and randomly distribute the contents into a large storage bin. The bin went into the closet and each day for the next 6 months my kids would take turns pulling out a card for me. One card at a time, it was like Christmas every day. I'm involved in a private chatroom of sportscard collectors where I would post a picture of "The Card of the Day" for the guys to follow along. The kids loved it too!

This Gillick PSA 10 card was Day #078 (11/7/2013) - I was thrilled to add this GEM to the collection.
