Style 7

This is the current style - in effect since about 2008, I believe. The most significant change here is that the numerical grade has been moved down to the line below the letters of the grade. This also coincides with a major change by PSA to use half-grades in their grading system. The font type of the flip is now not as bold/black as it was in Style 6:

Nice job! Maybe this should be one of those threads archived for reference.

Thanks for showing all of the PSA examples.Most of mine seem to be like examples 6 & 7..........but with all of the changes-this is why I have a hard time being able to spot a "fake flip".
This will be a good thread to refer back to if ever in doubt.
Would it also help to show examples of fake or altered PSA flips in this thread ?Just wondering.

Sincerely,Clayton

This may be a good start for many.

The PSA "made flip (from photo)" was made using the proper front and actually looks far better in-person. The fake Wagner flip, lost some resolution when enlarged...it too looks much better. Other than the eBay example (which is unknown), each fake PSA flip was made using a real PSA flip, so the backs are perfectly normal.

Real flips can be found printed in all different angles and alignments. This is especially true with SGC flips.

Thanks Kevin.

It's amazing to me how you really need to know how to identify the smallest of details when spotting a fake from the real deal.This is a big help to me,and I appreciate it.Great thread!!!!

Sincerely,Clayton

Also,it proves true that you should really get to know and understand the cards you are buying before spending huge $$$ on them

Default Fake PSA Flips

Wow great info guys. This is really helpful. Has anyone tracked the SGC changes as well? I know some of their old flips look a lot different.

Thanks to all who contributed to this thread. I was leary about a purchase because of a PSA slabbed card that looked strange compared to the ones I own. But thanks to your help, I now know it's just an old flip.
