Are we sure that the Wagner in the original post is authentic?

No Wagners but I do have a raw 1914 CJ Matty...it looks better out of a slab and free to breathe.

My first opinion of the card was that it had to be fake because it wasnít graded. Kinda why I created this tread. I canít believe someone would own this card raw.but as Leon pointed out it is very possible to have a Wagner and itís raw.

Likely not heavy weights, other than the Mantle, maybe, but a majority of my cards are not graded.
If I didn't live in Canada, that may be a different story, but since I do, with the exchange rate, shipping, duty, and the worry of them being lost/stolen, I really don't see me getting them graded anytime soon.

Like I have mentioned before, if I take a vacation sometime south where either SGC or PSA reside, then I may take these 3, and possibly some other high numbered cards with me at that time as long as I know ahead of time I can get them back before I come home?

I also believe many cards and other memorabilia are still out there, unknown to the hobby, undiscovered that someday will appear. I think of how many discoveries we hear about just on this site alone, so thinking all the old/rare cards are known about, is simply just blind thinking.

Personally, I like seeing/reading about them, even if they have affected the hobby numbers negatively as far as rarity/value goes.

Apparently people have vastly different views of "heavy weights"

Default We all have our skewed definitions

Due to the attached 3/4" thick wood plaque, I believe this more than qualifies as a 'heavyweight' card.

At a minimum, it would qualify as 'slabbed'

Yes that is correct -

With the advent of eBay and having been "burned" several times, I now find that I don't "trust" any card of any higher value that is not currently slabbed by one of the top 3 TPGs.

Not sure where that threshold is exactly but I would say any card worth more than a couple hundred dollars if I am buying online and the card is advertised as NRMT.

Looks like mans first attempt at slabbing. Lol where did you get this from? Judging by the etchings on the back itís graded a 3.
