Perhaps when it eventually gets sold it will get a High End certification.

I posted about this subject in a previous thread on the 9-10's in this auction:

http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=257327

Starting at post #13 through #25 might lend some insight. There was a large find of uncirculated T206's at the end of the 1980's. From the backs that were in the group it was likely a box of cards meant to be put into packs at factory 25 that were taken home. No Sweet Caporal, Just Piedmont 150-350, Sovereign 150-350 and Old Mill Southern League. You will notice the number of Sovereign 150 backs in this collection at Heritage. This was a pretty well documented find at the time, I covered about all I can remember in the other thread.

Regardless, there are worse 10s in the auction than even this one. Remmeber, a lot of these cards come from the Harris collection.
As painful as it is to say, I agree with Jeff on this. This card should be no higher than an 8 IMO, the upper left corner regardless of the cut, simply keeps this card way below a grade of 10, not even close... Also, there are Harris cards out there that look like Stevie Wonder trimmed them....

Do they not consider the centering on the back when making their assessment? I canít believe that they would not. We can all agree that the card doesnít deserve a 10, but some guy wonít care and will drop absurd money on the flip anyway. Itís madness.

Even if this card was spot on, perfect centering on the back, 8 at best should be the grade.,...
