Just got this back. Really disappointed with the grade. Card is crease free with excellent gloss Bottom left corner is weak. Top left has what appears to be a light mark in border but I cant tell whether it is or lint. Lets assume it is a light mark, what do you think an approprite grade would be. I have to tell you that to get this card centered is next to imposssible (bbo can attest)
I cracked this out of a PSA with a much higher grade.

You're disappointed so my guess is a 50, but I don't care what the grade is, it's a beauty.

I'd say a 80 cause of the lower left corner but it looks sweet to me

It's a bad scan but don't you think that corner brings it down to somewhere between 60 and 80?

Lean toward 80 cause it's centered so well

Scan is too blurry to tell much.
I got my Goldsberry from you, which I'd grade VG, so you had to be expecting better than VG but are disappointed.
I'll assume they deemed the mark to be pencil and you didn't catch it.
I say 30-40.

I cracked this out of a PSA 6. I always allow for a fulll grade down but a 55 is outrageous. A 70 would have been the lowest this card should have gotten.. Definitely going to crack this one out, examine the mark and decide what to do from there. I have been searching for a couple of years for this card with nice centering. This is an instance where collecting raw would have alleviated any aggrevation on my part.

Unless your're going to sell it, why crack it?
Its nice eye appeal will not change. Just put your thumb over the grade whenever you look at it.

Just used a highnpowered loop. That mark isnt a mark but a chip. Im just going to leave it and seek another. Maybe I should become a grader at PSA, we see things alike.

I seriously hope you don't see enough things alike to qualify for being one of those.
