This came in the mail today. My first and likely only T3. I have always wanted one. Fortunately this one was very reasonably priced. It is graded a PSA 2. I looked at the T3s in the SGC registery and based on my observations (as I have stated in other posts I'm new to third party grading)it appears to be at least comparable to a few of the SGC 40s and 50s I saw there. Do you think it would cross over with such a grade or should I leave it alone? Based on statements I read here it appears that the opinion exists SGC may be more versed in the grading of pre-war cards than PSA. Nonetheless, this is a situation where I bought the card and not the holder. I have to say I am thrilled with the condition of this PSA 2 and believe it may have been under graded. Of course my vision is clouded by ownership. The white lines on the front of the image are on the holder not the card. What do you think?

Card has great eye appeal. Both PSA and SGC do a good job. I would guess there is a technicality keeping that in PSA 2 holder. It was graded before the change to the .5 system so now PSA may bump it to 2.5. Pre war cards look mighty nice in SGC holders. I think it would be a good idea to cross it over. I can't imagine the grade going down and if it stays the same you've lost nothing, perhaps gained by having it in an SGC holder.

Time to bump this thread!

Lately it seems like I've been on a T206 buying binge; here are 3 cards that I got in the last week or so that will go towards the team Master set that I hope to put together...
