Guess the grade on these two cards and if you so desire, select which one, regardless of grade, would be best in a Registry Set.

That's a piece of lint on the far right border on the second card, trapped inside the slab.

I dunno about a grade, but I like the bottom card better. Better centering. Therefore the bottom one would be better for the registry, IMHO. Drop the resolution just a bit and I could judge better. So, take the top one and send me the bottom one...for Christmas. That's one of my favorite 59 cards along with the Mays/Ashburn card.

Like the bottom best to. Cause of the centering as stated before. Card could be a 92 IMO

Corners appear better on top one. That's an 88 and the bottom is 84.

The top card has slightly better focus/register and the bottom card has slightly better centering. Both are in SGC slabs. The top card was graded way back when there was no single digit grade, just a double digit. The bottom card was graded much more recently. I like them both. A lot. So, trex, neither of them will be in your Christmas stocking. (I hear it told you're in for a bundle of sticks and a lump of coal again this year.)

I'll post scans tomorrow morning to reveal the grades.

At least one person has correctly graded at least one card, but no one has both correct.

I'm sorry, I can't remember what was said, could you repeat that. Too much living in the past.
