View Full Version : Guess the Grade and Grader Game

10-12-2011, 11:16 AM
Hello everyone, my name is Andrew I am new here. Just wanted to say that this forum is fantastic. There is so much I have learned already and all my trades/transactions have been smooth. Just thought I would have some fun with this post and see who can get the grade and the grader correct. Could be BVG, SGC, PSA, GAI and you can also guess if there is a qualifier and a half grade. I will reveal answer at noon on Friday

Why couldn't I get the same guy who graded this to grade my T205 Matty....

That's shameful. Didn't the grader even see the two pinholes? When you spend about twelve seconds looking at a card, you will miss things like that.

Those appear to be 2 pinholes near the top of the card. It's really hard to tell from the scan. At the very least, it looks like paper loss.

I also see 2 light vertical creases at the bottom of the card.

IMO, it shouldn't have graded any higher than a 1.5.

Yes. Pinholes, paperloss and wrinkles. The lesson here is grade the card and not the grade.

Do you own this card and/or did you get it graded? Just curious....

I bought it from an honest dealer who had noted the pinholes. It is hard to see from the scans but the case was not tampered with at all.

Welcome to Net54 !!

I missed the grading game but for some reason I'm not suprised by this one bit. How any grader could make such a mistake is beyond me-I mean, did they even look at the card?? :confused:
