Card was obviously exposed to light over a long period of time. Even the flip has faded. Compare the color of the flip to another PWCC PSA card and you'll see the difference in the redness.

Default Missing.....

It is missing a color pass. Red is my guess like another board member stated. If it had sat in the sun that long, the borders would also be discolored to an extent. It just looks too even to be sun discoloration. Its possible it sat in the sun but who in there right mind would do such a thing? I realize it could have been displayed near a window but my money is on missing a layer or 2 of color.
Whoever paid that much has a few things missing upstairs and now has over $10,000 missing from his or her wallet!
Peace, Mike

"The offered '7' ranks among the finest examples we've brokered in our tenure and is also among the hobby's finest copies."

I'd hate to see the ones they've brokered which were not among the finest examples in their tenure.

This entire conversation is like my biggest nightmare. So glad I didnt even attempt this one. Just dreading the day I buy something expensive and someone says "Moron!" I had someone say that on a smaller item a ways back, but if it were $10k, i would have an awful feeling in the pit of my stomach.

To paraphrase the great Don Rickles, if that card is “all around fantastic” I have cataracts.

Probably faded from light. Maybe sitting in a display under direct lights. Heritage sold a group of these cards earlier this year. They must have all been from the same collection.

Here's the link to the heritage sale earlier this year. Description does mention it was kept in an open display.
