Gotta be an 86 or better. If not, I quit.


Not quitting. Still got it.

That blemish at the top is going to knock it down quite a bit. I will say 50 or 55.


cammb, you might want to consider quitting. That was waaaaaaaaaaay off.

I agree with the other board members on the Eddie Mathews.

That is one beautiful card. Very nicely centered with fantastic color and Registration and very solid corners. absolutely no way that small print mark impeeds the beauty of that card. Nice pick up indeed.

K-Nole

Congratulations on the 1970 Topps Football Set!
Ive been working on that set for almost 20 years and I still have a wantlist!

Just found out that the blemish is on all the cards. If ithat werent the case I stand by my original guesstimate. There is no way in hell that that would get an 86 or 88 with that on the front of the card.

I have to respectfully disagree.

It is a print flaw, no doubt, but whether its on one, none or all of the Eddie Matthews cards. That should in no way determine giving the card a "Pass" on grading it on its own individual asspects, and I don't believe SGC gave the card a pass even if they knew the print flaw was a knowen factor with this card.

Also the print mark is not on any of the card graphics, Face, logo or lettering and I simply don't believe it carries enough weight to trump the other NM-MT features of the card and surely not to the point of a 50 or 55.

SGC got it right IMHO

No way a tiny print spot near the border knocks a card down 3 grades. That's a ridiculous assertion.
