I bought this card back in mid December for $46. I'm wondering why I got it so cheap for a grade of NM+ 7.5. Is the PRO Grading Company a complete joke ?

Haha, that was a very quick 'yes' trifecta.

So a PRO 7.5 is equivalent to a PSA/SGC .... 6 ?

You'd be lucky if that card graded at all. Probably looking at a trim.

nope.


I am guessing Pro 7.5 = trimmed / altered / hopefully authentic.

Hey, for 46 bucks and the cost of grading I guess it's worth a shot.

Your best chance of slipping it by though is to with PSA.

(I can't believe I said that Just broke my New Years resolution )

The bright side is that it was an inexpensive $46 lesson instead of a $500 - $1000 lesson. The first thing most vintage collectors think when they see a PRO holder is "trimmed." Stick with SGC, PSA, Beckett, and GAI and your odds of getting a trimmed card in a holder go way down. And if they were trimmed and reside in a high numbered holder, they were trimmed really, really well.
