Rookie Card Upgrade 8: 2011 Topps Chrome Rookie Autographs Refractor Craig Kimbrel (BGS 9)

I have a thing for electric closers. Kimbrel definitely fits the mold and about three years ago I bought this raw 2011 Topps Chrome Rookie Autograph for my collection.

  
Kimbrel has been a stud ever since, but demand for his cards decreased due in part to the fact that he had since been traded to the San Diego Padres. About a month ago a BGS graded refractor version of the card hit COMC at less than the price of a blaster box. Needless to say I popped on it.  

And then as the card was being shipped to me, Kimbrel was traded to the Boston Red Sox, my favorite team. Timing was perfect for this acquisition.
