View Full Version : I shudder to think what this card would have graded if I had submitted it

The expression on Chuck's face says it all.

Damn......maybe the stains resurfaced after the card was encased?

Nice reprint

Easily handled: just state the price for a PSA 5 and I'm sure you'll move that card in no time.

That's has to be ink splatter on the scanner bed. No way in a million yrs.

Is this card actually real? It looks like an artificially aged rp!

That's a solid 1.

That's not a scanned image - you can see a shadow of the person taking the picture. The image has also been taken at an angle. Scanned images are always 100% flat.

I see two possible scenarios here:

One - it's an older PSA flip, and standards were different then. It's possible that staining like this didn't automatically bring a card below a 3.

Two - the stains were considerably lighter when it was graded, and have darkened since. Or, it's actually mold that has continued to grow and spread.

Accurate grading...this is the gunk coming out of the ear variation.

BTW, this is not a current offering - I found it on VCP as selling a few months ago. So all you guys can stop frantically searching for it on ebay :D

I submit a decent amount and Id expect a 1. Looks like it mustve been an older grade when they were far more lenient especially on the low end. Could also be a mold issue but looks more like ink or something then mold.
