Has anyone ever seen this type of grading by PSA before, ( VG-8)?

I've also noticed the same card listed on ebay graded SGC (Authentic) for a extremely overpriced cost of $2500.00... :rolleyes:

The one which almost looks like a PSA holder doesn't look like a good auction. I highly doubt that if someone actually fell for that and bought it, they would get what is pictured, whatever it is.

VG 8 is a designation for a graded coin. Looks like the label forger might have a numismatic background.

That sure looks like the same card and scan to me. Looks like someone Photo Shopped a fake Psa label over the Sgc label, no??
The blemishes on the black Sgc insert match up perfectly in both pics.

No listing of Cert.# 12924162 in PSA database.

Maybe we should ask him for a back scan. If nothing else, it would make him waste an hour of his Saturday trying to photoshop that as well...

Take Care,

This is a bad seller. If you look at his completed sales, you can see that he sold multiple copies of a 1933 Sport Kings Babe Ruth PSA 8, all with the same flip in different auctions, each for around 1K.

You can clearly see the photo shopped lines (fuzziness) on the "PSA" label for the #8 VG 8, around the name and also around the serial number. Not very good.
