This is one tough card in ultra high grade. I don't like some of the flaws on this particular specimen, but I'm about to crank up the snipe.

1959 Musial 92

You sure your not falling prey to buying the label Mike?

Other than the nice centering there is a lot of things going on with that card that leads me to believe it is overgraded.

The Print "debris", 3 of the corners look a little iffy, as well as rough cut bottom.

The color doesn't seem to "pop" off the card to me.


Just sayin

Here is my current Musial, which I got in trade a couple of Nationals ago, giving up a Clemente-86, plus some $$.

Agreed.

Mike,

Save your cash. You gotta believe your card is nicer than
that one. The print circles on the 92 would bother me.
Then there are the other marks and the mark/stain on the bottom left edge/border.
Yours is not bad. I'd wait for a sweet 96! \:\)

If it wasn't for the centering and a little sharper blue I would
like the other 92.

I have seen you sub nicer cards than that and receive worse grades.

The white borders bother me a bit - for a 92, they should be a bit more bright, imo.
