This was a recent eBay purchase and I couldn't believe the grade once it arrived. This card looks like a 96 to me all day long and a great shot at a 98 I believe. I have louped this card over and over and over again. The corners are absolutely razor sharp. No edge wear at all. Clean white back. No tiny spider creases (otherwise it would not have even graded a 7). So does anybody see what I'm missing? I bet I've spent literally 30 minutes looking at this card under a loupe over and over. Resub?

Wow, from the naked eye, definitely can't see anything that keeps it under a 96. What an outstanding card!

Grader forgot to eat lunch?

Maybe he saw your K-State icon and is KU fan?

Awesome card though!

If the grade don't fit, then resubmit.

BTW, still going thru that run of 80's sets I bought from you a few months ago - the 83's were almost GEM all the way through!

I'd give PSA a chance to grade this card. If they concur you know the grade is correct. If it comes back a good bit higher which appears quite possible if not likely, you will have a more valuable card.

Maybe the grader doesn't like rough edges. That is one beautiful card.

That is sweet! Only thing I see wrong (perhaps) is TR corner slightly bumped?

I agree with Scott! That card deserves a higher grade.
