Eric -- Good job. I noticed that you listed 48 cards...what was #49?? Like those '77 Baseball 96s... On the ones you thought would grade higher, I suggest taking another look at back centering. This failing explained some of my disappointments.

which didn't get graded because I failed to put a minimum grade on it. I didn't know that I needed to do that. They just taped a SGC label over the PSA holder with a designation of "MIN" I will contact them to ask what this means and how I should do this for next time.

Very interesting. Could you scan the card and upload? I am interested to see the label. Please let us know what this label signifies? Does it mean it would graded a mint if you okayed the crack out? Is this a regular service?? Maybe Seano will read this and let us know...

Old, dense-headed hammers are cool. Best nail pounders.

The MIN label means that the minimum specified grade was not achieved -- so they don't crack the card out of the holder. I guess estang didn't specify the minimum grade, so the folks at SGC chose the conservative path and didn't crack it out. MIN doesn't equal MINT.

I can tell from my crossover experience that SGC will not crack a card out for crossover without a minimum grade being specified and met. When a card fails to meet the specified minimum grade, SGC usually tells you what it would have graded - although the reason(s) for failing to meet the minimum grade are not provided.
