I would not worry about the altered stock because it is such a thin card to begin with. That is more for regular cards that have been smashed for several years(decades).
I submitted it to SGC. Not sure what he could do at this point, it's either going to grade out with a # or it won't. Thank you for your help though, the whole grading element of card collecting is new for me.

I think it'll be just fine. Probably not a 9 but fine anyway. I've sent a few in in toploaders which they also don't like, since I don't use cardsavers and have to save them up from stuff I bought. Didn't have a problem, and didn't get the toploaders back. Not a big deal since they were also used ones with old price stickers, yellowing etc.

I didn't send any in in the toploader/mylar sleeve combo, as the mylar had sealed itself to the toploaders and I had to cut the card out. Figured that would really bug them as it was a lot of extra work.

I'm hoping this brick was not recessed. Otherwise that could put surface impressions in your card. I would kind of expect a 92 SGC 8.5 for this card, if the top right corner has the feathering it sort of looks like to me, and the nick on the top left side is just a scratch on the screwdown.

I've looked over the card a lot of times before submitting it and there is no nick on the top left side, I'm sure it's just a scratch on the screwdown. I wouldn't mind a SGC 92!

You might get one (92) but odds aren't in your favor. Cross your fingers.

I'm hoping you're wrong but I'm sure you are more experienced with grading than I am so you're probably right. I do think the card looks sharper and better in person than what shows on the scan though.

Let us know, it should be interesting. I am hoping you are correct. They do give out high grades but they seem to be to others and not me!!

In the future, STAY AWAY FROM BRICKS!!! I understand you want to keep the card protected, but they make Card Savers in all various sizes.

Ended up only getting a 60. While I'm not surprised that it didn't get a 92, I do think it was graded a bit on the low side. There is a little ink mark on the back of the card so maybe that dragged it down?

A 5 coming back from SGC on an otherwise great card is almost always due to a wrinkle or crease. Even those you cant see with naked eye - been there several times and if you look hard enough (magnify) you should find it.

80/20 or better centering, minor rounding or fuzzing of corners, roughness or chipping along edge (no layering), one VERY slight surface or "spider" crease may exist on one side of the card, gloss may be lost from surface with some scratching that does not detract from the aesthetics of the card.

Ink/Pencil usually drops the card lower than 60.
