The HE PWCC T206 Matty dark cap PSA 5 for $3900 raised my eyebrows a bit. But that's PWCC these days

I was suggesting someone THINKS they can get the job done. What is your opinion on why a $200 card would sell for this much?

What's good for PWCC is good for America.

Centered better than most 58s and someone thinks they can fix that divot. It looks like something is going on with the right side border too, but that may just be a smudge on the slab. Card doctors looking to get this into a better PSA slab?

I am surprised no one has started an arbitrage business. Buy cards from normal eBayers, send to PWCC, realize the profit (even with their fees).

Yes it was well-centered. It also had a divot or something on the left side. WT..... is going on here?

That IS a nice price. And I wouldn't buy that card at that price...

But before we really start piling on, it should be noted that the comps Peter pulled are a bit old. The most recent one is nearly 1.5 years old, the second-most recent more than a year older than that and all others range from three to five years prior to this sale. And if we are going to draw strong conclusions on a sale, I'd prefer to have more recent comps (and a decent number of more recent comps) to base them on.
It strikes me as ironic that on a board with an unofficial motto of "Buy the card, not the holder," that an impressive return on an impressive card is criticized. That is a fine example of that card (and really - why didn't it get the HE/purple label/etc. treatment?) and I don't begrudge the new owner at all for going above and beyond in acquiring it. I've spent more than the going rate on a few cards in my time when it was something I really wanted, as I think most collectors have at some point, even if I wouldn't come close to putting this much money on this specific card.
And if anybody here has cards on my want list that they'd part with for prices from a few years ago, please get in touch!

An absolute killer PSA 7 far nicer than this card with a divot and print issues just sold for 600 or so. Next argument?

Got a link? It'd be good to make that comparison.

Dang, that's a smokin' Aaron. If that went for $600-ish recently, the PWCC one is crazy - particularly since it's SGC and the $600-ish one is PSA so I'd think the registry folks would provide a bump...
