Not that it's a surprise but the seller knows it's a mistake by PSA
he bought the card for $150.

It's not Leon, it does have a brownish look compared to some of the regular
black Old Mills we see but it's not even close when you put it next
to a true Brown Old Mill.

Default The original ad...

I love the original add back when the card was sold for $150

https://www.ebay.com/itm/T206-Old-Mi...rue&rmvSB=true

"This card has been professionally authenticated and graded by PSA (Professional Sports Authenticator), a division of Collector’s Universe, and the #1 grading company in the sports card industry. You can depend on the fact that the card is original and authentic, and that the quality is assured....


We are selling off stuff that has been accumulated and stored up to 40 years in my Grandaddy’s old house next door.

I think I've posted this before, but the rule is that the brown ones have a noticeably red tint to them, so if there's a question just ask "Does this 'brown' look kinda red?" And if the answer's "No" you're just looking at a faded black one.

Months ago, this card sat on eBay for weeks, listed for sale as a brown old mill (I think he was asking $15k). I am one of likely a dozen people who emailed him to tell him its not a brown old mill. He knows. And it most certainly is not a brown old mill.

PSA screwed the pooch big time on this one, and the seller is a piece of shit fishing for a dummy to screw over.
