This was brought up on another board about the discrepancy with PSA grading. Crease on the front and paper loss on the back. Who was the grader, Stevie Wonder????? No disrespect to Steve meant as he is a talented singer, but probably wouldn't make a great sports card grader.

Wonder if I would get the same grade from SGC????????????

WOW! I GUARANTEE SGC isn't BLIND! That card is no better than a 1 or possibly 2 in my opinion....the paper loss on the back is significant, not to mention the crease on the front! This is another prime example of WHY I collect SGC graded cards...!

A white backround is a must for those trying to sell comprimised slabs. I'm not saying this slab has been cracked, I'm just saying that's one trick they use.

There is always the possibility of a card being cracked, I know it has been a problem with some of the pre-war graded cards and sometimes PSA can be understanding. There is no questions they have some issues and the process of grading is very subjective, but it appears to be an earlier graded card before the sub-grades. If you sent this in ungraded now I am sure it would come back a lower grade.

The slab doesn't look comprimised to me - no frosting around the edges. His other two cards are scanned against a white background as well. If he were trying to pull a switcheroo, I don't think he would have included a scan of the back. I think PSA just totally blew this one.

To quote Earl, "This is another prime example of WHY I collect SGC graded cards...!"

I've read several times about the "frosting" that occurs when a slab has been cracked. Does anyone have any photos of this?

I'm interested to see what it looks like so that I don't end up buying a compromised slab. Thanks.
