Default Wonder what you think re: this classic Matty

I recently won this at REA, as a big Matty fan and fan of the Noveltys. Thought I got a good price, as it was under what had been paid earlier for a 1.5 and an Auth. Only 3 graded at PSA--and only one higher, so it's a tough card for sure. It's a sharp card, overall VG-EX or VG ++++, only the faintest small crease, back is great and of course image is great. BUT I wonder if price was depressed by people thinking it is over-graded due to that missing right corner...should have been docked even more....or, perhaps grade is correct, but some people just won't go for something with that bad a corner, even for a beauty of a card. Your thoughts?

Where is Matty? All I see is a missing corner. Honestly that is a disgrace to me in a 2 holder, should have been a 1. Just my opinion.

Two things, IMO - you got a good deal and the card is overgraded.
My guess is the corner is indeed the reason the bidding may have been less spirited. Still a beautiful card that is missing a corner.

Another vote for the postcard being overgraded. I would suggest not relying on the PSA pop report too heavily for this particular issue. I'm not sure most collectors feel a burning desire to get their Novelty Cutlery postcards in a PSA slab or any TPG slab for that matter.

If you're happy with the postcard at the price you paid, then that's all that really matters.

terribly overgraded. the missing corner would be a deal killer for so many collectors. great that you’re ok with it.

Greg, FYI, SGC has graded 5 of these Matty PCs.

I honestly didn't even notice the bottom corner until reading Leon's post -- the image is that strong and the card is probably a 4/5 without the missing piece. That being said, it's too big a piece missing to warrant a 2 grade. As a 1 it's really in the eye of the beholder as to what it's worth. Could be worth a 2 and could be worth an A, depending on who's looking at it.

You got it a good price and it is fantastic looking despite the missing corner...who cares how it is graded? Great pickup for a collection, and maybe someday if you upgrade you should still do fine selling it because there are plenty of collectors willing to ignore a problematic corner on such a desirable piece.

It’s a really neat piece and most importantly you are happy with it, which is more important than what any of us think.
