Default My Gamble for the night

How do you think I did? He mistakenly listed it as Philadelphia, I checked with him before bidding and it is indeed Pittsburgh. The first back image is in a sleeve that has residue of some sort of writing on it, the second is cleaner. Looks like a decent card and frankly anything better than authentic is a profit. he hasn't done cards before but he has sold a number of items ranging up to $1000 so it looked like a risk worth taking. He also agreed to expedite shipping so hopefully I'll have it at Valley Forge. Love me some T200s! Little worried that the upper left corner (in his pictures) is recolored, but frankly I'd emery that off down to paper again if I had to as the rest of it is so clean.

Cool card. Nearly bought one at the Hofstra show for quite a bit more than that. Sweet.

I've done this before on recolored T205's. It certainly damages the card, but it gets rid of the offending color. I think of it as accelerated wear. Does anyone think this is unacceptable? To me it's even less egregious than soaking as it isn't really improving the card, if anything you risk significantly lowering the grade, I just can't stand recoloring. Thoughts?

Thoughts

If you are keeping the card and the recoloring makes you puke when you look at it, then maybe okay.

But if you are altering the card for resale, folks might have a problem with that.
They might wonder also about other cards you are selling. Personally I would leave the emery paper in the drawer.
