After a PM conversation with trex, I decided to put up here a "guess the grade" card.

This 1964 Boog Powell was sent in three (3) times and got three different grades. I finally gave up and here it is in its permanent tomb.

Question: What is the grade now? I'll reveal the answer before Sunday Night Football kickoff.

No prizes, just interested in the board members' opinions. There is obviously no "right" answer since the grading geniuses couldn't agree.

I'm guessing a psa 7.5. Looks like a slight nick above the W on the reverse.

Moral turpitude????? Damn I hate it when I have to look up the meaning of words. Especially this early in the morning and without my first cup of coffee.

Moral turpitude is a legal concept in the United States that refers to "conduct that is considered contrary to community standards of justice, honesty or good morals." It appears in U.S. immigration law from the nineteenth century. In other common law jurisdictions it is dated or obsolete.

The concept of moral turpitude escapes precise definition but has been described as an "act of baseness, vileness or depravity in the private and social duties which a man owes to his fellowmen, or to society in general, contrary to the accepted and customary rule of right and duty between man and man."

So, I guess what I glean from this, since were not talking about immigration law, the concept is dated or obsolete.

If it wasn't dated or obsolete, guess that would dash any thoughts of ever becoming a TPG'er for me.

This will be good though.

Since I can't reveal the answer, can I give my thoughts on the card Sunday evening?
