Scott, I don't disagree that it is very marginal for a SGC-50...it is. While that may be the case, I have no problem calling that card VG-EX. As I said earlier, I think SGC is a tad overly harsh on this specific grade.

Your card is sharp. I have never figured out why people decided they needed to "sharpen up" already nice cards. My guess is that was a solid 50/60 before they got out the razor. \:\(

The T206 Clarke is a great looking card!

I recently submitted two more crossovers to SGC (one 1933 Goudey and one 1935 Goudey), both of which were PSA 5 and submitted to SGC in their original PSA holders. I'm hoping I'll have better luck than I had with my previously submitted PSA 4s.

I'll post the results once I receive them.

My two crossovers just popped and the results were good, as both crossed over at their original grades.

1933 Goudey #198 Burns - PSA 5 ---> SGC 60
1935 Goudey 4-in-1 Terry, etc. - PSA 5 ---> SGC 60

I've had the most trouble trying to cross over PSA 4s, so these results are pretty consistent with my past results.

Goudeys can be real tough to cross. My success rate in crossing over PSA 7s (1933, 1934 and 1938 sets) is about 65% .. and that's after I've already weeded out the ones I don't think will cross.

In the higher grades, it is tough to find them already in SGC slabs. But in the mid-grade, I think there are some dealers that hold those in inventory. Being able to buy them already in SGC holders takes a lot of hassle and heart-break out of the collecting game.

P.S. Great blog!

PSA terribly lack knowledge in my collecting arena. I have tried to educate them, but frankly, it was wasted energy.

SGC has made efforts to keep the hobby upbeat - learning along the way.

PSA is the kind of industrial disease that the card hobby does not need.

I'm new to the sgc message boards but have just had a problem going the other way - SGC to PSA. I just submitted a sgc 84 yellow frank chance t206 and it came back from psa evidence of trimming. Talk about an expensive situation. Anyone have advice on what to do? My main issue is that I'm a psa set registry guy with #30 on the t206 registry. If I can't get this card into my set, I'm going to have to shell out $2k for a psa 7.

Anyone have this problem? Cards not crossing over at all?

From all the stories I have heard the past few years, try resubmitting the card again to PSA. Did you crack the card out and submit or send it in and have cracked out? I assume you cracked it out...anyway, if SGC put it in a holder I have to trust that PSA's assessment is completely wrong as many have had this experience with them. The Hobby slam with PSA is if you don't like the grade you got the first time keep resubmitting until you do. It's not a put down for the other guys but reputation that they have gained from many collectors who have experienced it like you. I would try the resub and if it won't pass again then I'd say send it back to SGC and have them regrade and slab...then sell the card. Just my thoughts....

Well either PSA or SGC got it wrong. I am sure it happens at both
company's. My thing is SGC will not min size you and PSA will so with the t206's I imagine the sizes are all over the place and PSA just erred on the side of caution. Resubmit it and see what happens.
