How this card could get a "6", and mine a 5.5:

Maris 6

What does this say about grading? Shouldn't grading reflect eye appeal?

Pat, I would agree yours is better by far. Your corners are better also registration is better plus eye appeal is a lot better. This is another case of by the card not the holder.

That's easy to answer. It's when the card was graded. I'd venture to guess your 5.5 was graded more recently than the 6 you link to on eBay. My whole issue with TPG, especially with SGC over the past couple of years, has been the change in grading standards.

If I were you, I'd buy the 6 and send both in to SGC and ask for a regrade. At a minimum, they should switch the grades.
