There is a big difference between

"wrongly graded" and Knowingly misgrading

I agree with that, they were wrong but in the grand scheme of things I guess I'm saying I could care less is all. Think TPG's are good for the hobby and have done more good than harm. There are crooks all over, without PSA there probably wouldn't be an SGC.

And although that card is a landmark in the hobby anyone who throws 2.8 million at one card is a little nuts IMO I'd be just as happy with a
Beautitful topps runs from 52 to now.... Pretty sure that would get me one and then some.

Has PSA made any statements?

I'm betting they try to let it fade away or stick with the "we knew it was trimmed but couldn't let a card like that stay out a holder so..."! Will be interesting to see how they handle it for sure.

33rd

I admire your passion for the hobby and enjoy many of the insightful threads you bring to light on this board.

But I must say I am very surprised by some of your comments concerning this kind of matter.

You don't care that those the hobby entrusts to Authenticate and validate the cards and other collectibles do it with Ethical and honest professionalism?

Just because that particluar card doesn't personally effect you that makes it OK?
As long as it's some other poor smuck being cheated thats ok?

Would it then be accurate to assume you don't care about those Ethical and moral values when dealing with others yourself?

Sadly this is the kind of attitude that has been eroding the Moral and ethical fiber of not only this hobby, but our country as well.

Where does it end? When it does directly get to you?

Do we just continue to turn a blind eye to the corruption that cripples our banking system? Only to bail them out on our tax dollars and then turn right around and let them continue to do the same thing again? Where does it end? Do we just not demand that people be accountable for their actions?

Crooked lawyers to corrupt politicians are fleecing our once great country into Mediocrity.
Why? Because nobody could care less? Until it effects their bottom line personally and by then its too late to cry foul.

You gotta Stand for Something or you'll fall for anything.

Unfortunately more and more are willing to just fall for anything.

John

PS: I do believe SGC was grading cards before PSA arrived.
