In my personal experience SGC will grade a card as high as a SGC 40/3 VG with paper loss. I had a Babe Ruth that was otherwise easily NrMint get a VG grade because of a speck of paper loss on the right border the size of a pin head.

I will complain that i mailed off 119 cards to SGC to get graded 58 days ago and still are not done.
T210 Series 3 Ft Worth, looking for low end examples and especially ones with a Y shaped hole punch. I also have some extra T210's for trade.

As previously stated, eye appeal and technical grading are two completely different categories. Buy the card, not the grade, unless you're doing a set registry.

Side note: I don't really care about SGC inconsistencies, as long as they have the beautiful slab with the black interior. It's the sole reason I go with them for Pre-War. Again, eye appeal.

Personally this is a non issue as we are comparing to a 1. A 1 is unequivocally the most vast category in existence. As long as it's a real card and 90% there it will get a 1, it basically means it's real and unaltered.

If this was a comparison between a 1.5 and 2 it could be a more salient topic for discussion.

This Pastorius was previously in a PSA 2 holder. There is no paper loss but there is a paper pull on the back.

Anyone have any tips to removing ink? I have a Robinson I want to keep for my collection. Can you soak mid 50's topps cards? No malicious intentions guys, just trying to improve my collection without paying up for big cards.
