Great thing about raw cards: Everyone gets to proclaim with metaphysical certitude what the grade is, no matter what the condition or characteristics of the card are. Dealers at shows used to do that prior to about 1999 or so. Those same dealers HATED and DESPISED the grading companies. Where are they now? Either OOB or TPG-certified dealers. lol

Oh, no. The '51 Topps Red/Blue backs are much worse.

But I don't collect 1951 Topps, so how bad can that set really be? If I collected it, wouldn't the values be reflected in the price guides with down arrows? Help me understand the logic.

Spahn stuff is undervalued in my opinion. The Greg Maddox if that era, just won and won an won.

Thanks for the compliment on the card and I agree that his stuff is undervalued. I met him at a show here in Houston in the mid '80s. He was one of the first autographs I ever got (may have even been the first).
