Posted By: <b>Brian E.</b><p>Without a doubt the card is authentic. Red back Cobb cards, slabbed and in poor condition go for $225-$425. Overall, the condition doesn't look too bad and $375 is within reason. I would personally try to get it for $300-$350. <br /><br />You need to see the reverse of the card, if the reverse is clean and there is not significant paper loss or markings, $300-$375 is okay on this card. <br /><br /><br />Brian E.

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>Unquestionably real, but unless it is the scan, it looks out of register with too much yellow along the left border. Still not bad looking for a 10.

Posted By: <b>Brian E.</b><p>The yellow appears to be some type of minor staining or discoloration. While not ideal, I don't think it is overly distracting. Assuming the back is clean, the yellow may be the reason the card is "poor" rather than "fair".<br /><br />Brian E.

Posted By: <b>Kent</b><p>I saw this same card. It appears similar to a Red back Cobb I bought about a month ago. I paid $370 and some change for an SGC 10-Had a VG+ front, with some paper loss on a Sweet Caporal back. Although probably not the majority of this posts opinion, I look at it like this....I don't display the back!!
