Raw pickup, January 2008, for my Registry set. Although the centering is off, it is still within spec. What sets this card apart is the fact that there are no surface flaws, none. No indentations, scratches or scrapes which can usually be detected only upon close inspection while raw. This is why I prefer buying raw cards to submit myself for grading. Buying cards already slabbed often hide some defects.


Another raw pickup from the same show and on the same 10-card invoice as the Drysdale, graded in February 2008.


These are the only two cards that remain in my set from that invoice. The other 8 have been sold and upgraded. All 10 were acquired at the same show, from three different dealers.

So haow can you tell WHEN the card was graded by looking at the flip? I am assuming it has something to do with the serial number but how does the translation work?

I can't tell. But since I subbed both of those cards, it's a matter of looking back at my records.
