Default SGC, way to keep it consistent!

I know this horse has been beaten to death, but I posted a side by side of these cards in another thread, and some guys have pm'd me to post the backs too. I didn't want to hijack a thread that had nothing to do with this topic. Here are 2 T3 Cobbs. They are separated by a half-grade. A HALF $&@& GRADE!!!! The left is a 1.5 and the right is a 1. If I were the CEO of SGC, I would find a way to correct these disperate results at all costs. It is so ridiculous.

Default Typical for SGC.

Paper loss on the obverse gets you a 20 all day.

Yes, The left has a lot of paper loss. It should not be higher than a 1.5.

The important thing is the sale price and I will bet it is vastly different.

The paper loss is on the reverse, not obverse.

Is there any paper loss on the front of the left card? If not, I would gladly own it!

I know, I know, paper loss made the t3 a 1.5. But why is this a 2 when there is paper loss, and it is ON THE FRONT OF THE CARD? So paper loss on the front is less egregious than paper loss on the back in a totally innocuous spot?

Keith, I know that, but what I am pointing out is that perhaps they should reconsider that rote practice.

So, if I understand grading correctly, if the card has paper loss, a chunk missing, pin holes, or color added then it really doesn't matter what the rest of the card looks like. Heck, maybe we can say both PSA and SGC got the 1936 Joe DiMaggio WW card graded correctly.

I will add that many people still buy the card and not the holder which we saw in the REA auction when this beauty went for 33k. Description said color was added but I don't see it. Plus, if the color can be cleaned then maybe a PSA 7 is in order?

I think the T3 Cobb will do really well in the HA auction to as it's a great eye appeal. Collectors are more forgiving with back damage.

I think you hit it on the head JC. 2% of the cardboard makes up 100% of the grade when it comes to paper loss or pinholes. The other 98% could be GORGEOUS, but it is still put in the same category as cards that look like they were run over by a truck. As someone pointed out, the nice card will always sell for more, but it is horribly capped in the long run by the low grade. Grading companies should strive for consistency. When cards this different are even in the same stratosphere, you have a problem with your grading parameters.

Out of curiosity, what do you think that the cards should have been graded?
