Beautiful cards. Love the ford that one always seems off center some.


Not intending to steal VTG's thunder, but to answer 33rd's statement, here's mine, scan taken with a very old scanner. The first time I submitted it (years ago), it came back 84. I knew better way back then and got what it deserved the second trip.

Yeah bbo just tease me with that. Awesome ford. That's a nice centered card. Kind of like the 56 ford it took me forever to get a centered 56. Still searching for the 59.

Just picked this one up from Joe's Vintage Sportscards. It was described as VG/EX, but it looks more EX to me. I emailed them before I purchased it to ask if it had any creases and I was told that it did not. Better than described?

I think with three bent corners, VG/EX is correct. Plus it has some yellow discoloration dots in the white borders. I doubt you will have it graded, but it would fit with my 1952 set in that grade, and be a slight upgrade from my raw VG card, so I would sub it if I owned it.

Sometimes I wonder about sellers who sell both graded and raw and why they don't grade one such as this. Maybe they did and it came back worse than they expected. So they crack it out and sell it raw for the grade they think it is.

I think it would rate a half grade for the over all look of the card of course its a scan but if not a five it should pull a half grade in my opinion.

That's what I was thinking too. If graded, it would probably be a 4.5, but I think it would have a shot at a 5. Either way, it's staying raw.

I'd had my eye on the one below for a couple of months and even made the seller what I thought was a very fair offer, but he declined.

Now, I'm glad I waited. And it only cost me about half the listed price because I used my quarterly eBay Bucks.

Good thing you waited, Dave. Thats not a 5. Typical PSA overgrading. 2 bent corners and left side nick. Like yours better even with the corners. Centering makes up for that. Good job.

I think the surface scuffing and wear disqualify that PSA card from a 5. SGC might give it 50 (4) or 55 (4.5) on a good day. I still say VTG's raw card is a SGC 50 (4). It does present well and will look great in 8-pocket pages or a CS-1. For $70 instead of $99, he did pretty well.

Thanks, guys! Actually he had the PSA 5 with a BIN of $126 OBO. I offered him $105 which was way more than VCP ($81.28) and he countered at $114 I believe. I passed and I'm glad I did. I got it for way less and like I said, my eBay bucks covered about half the purchase price.
