Default REA 1934 Goudey Gehrigs

Lot 988 and 989
Does the SGC card look extremely short?

Yes it does. I thought the exact same thing when I first seen it. I compared several Goudeys side by side with it. SGC needs to make that one right.

I think they need to flip the flips, the SGC is the one that looks altered.

I don't know how much variation is present in this set, but that looks bad.

It's amazing how grading companies will mark cards that are not obviously trimmed as altered yet completely overlook the issue on cards that stand out as narrow or short.

Maybe the altered one has cardboard added to it.

REA doesn't question it as they have for prior graded cards that they believed could still possibly be trimmed

Almost as funny as when Bruce threatened to sue "Archive" and then found out it was himself.

We are comfortable with the assigned grade on the SGC card, and SGC has reviewed the card recently, affirming it meets their standards. We are never shy about disclosing instances where we feel differently about a grade.

Brian, I have the utmost respect for Rob and you and REA, but to put it bluntly, you kicked the pooch on that one. That card obviously is short, and SGC missed it.

It is short, but there are size variances in Goudeys. As the edges have fairly distinctive cuts, it could be legit.

SGC had probably graded > 5,000 Goudeys. If there is some natural variance and this falls within those parameters (certainly not hard to determine) I guess this is legit. We are all so suspicious because of all the doctoring in the hobby. Seems to me many of these issues were pretty crudely manufactured. Why would you expect them to be uniform?
