Help me understand white balance card use

I setup a shot to sell my old camera, and used the card (pictured) for white balance using a strobe with a reflector & white diffuser shooting through a white umbrella. The larger target area is gray, and when I use the eyedropper in LR and click onit, I get a reading of 5900 for temp & -11 tint. When I click on the small white area, the reading changes to 5800 & -9. Which area should I select for proper white balance?
