This card was deemed to have not met the minimum grade required (88) to cross. Can anyone venture a guess as to why? HINT: it's has nothing to do with the back.

Nah, the card is crooked in the holder and the op doesn't, let's say, have his scanning techniques perfected, to come up to the standards the rest of us have come to expect.

lol....a bunch.

If it's not the surface or centering, I am going to go with grader error.

There's a wrinkle you can't see looking at the scan.

It's happened to me, too many times.

We have a winner.
Pete, tell him what he's won.

Well, Bill, nothing actually. He's won nothing. Nothing to win here. Everyone goes home a loser. But thanks for playing.

BTW, the minimum grade requested was 88, an even cross.

The back is fine. That's not what the grader gave as a reason. In the scan four posts back, you can see that he circled the area on the baggie that was the lower left corner.

Crack it out and send it back. You will get your 88.
