Default PWCC Offering

Has anyone ever heard of a grading company called, 'Hall of Fame Grading Co?' I thought I had heard over the years of all of them, but not this one. The reason I enquire is that a quite nice '53 Goudey Ruth in the current PWCC auction is entombed by this rather peculiar grader who gave, what is a vg/ex card, a nrmt + grade. Are they for real?

I'm generally surprised they are offering a card from that grading co. I hope they accept returns if it's not authentic or altered.

Hey John
I assume you meant 1933 and not 1953? That said I don't see any listed which are graded by that company. I do see this GAI Ruth and was going to sigh until I read the description.......Nice job on this one..

It's the card just above the PRO card. I've never heard of the company, but their "mint 9" looks like a PSA 4 at best. And that's if it's not trimmed.

Leon, you are right a '33 not '53 Goudey yellow bkg Ruth, but the Bambino in this case is plasticized by this strange grading co, HOF grading company, and not PRO. As you know, I am scan challenged, but the card is in among the current PWCC auction with six days to go and stands at around $1900.

That bottom edge looks bad to me. And while I'm complaining, what idiot at "hall of fame grading" decided that the '33 Goudey is Ruth's "rookie card?"
