There are no creases, back is clean and centered, corners are sharp.

Mike were on the same page here! Your the master grader in my mind, you, Jim, John, Scott and Tony are right 90% of the time.

It just feels like a 86 to me. I looked at a few of my 86's and it seems like it should be an 88 or possibly better but thats my guess and Im sticking with it.

Without the card in hand, They are all basically guesses based on a scan.

Centering would make it an 86... I really believe that 86s are 88s that the grader didn't really care for the centering....

Thats a damn good point brother! You very well may be right. Judging from alot of my SGC 86's from the 58 set, Ive noticed clear and sharp focus, sharp edges, of course no creasing, staining or marks but the slightest tilt or off centerness in most of the 86's. A majority of those tend to fall in the o/c top to bottom by the looks of mine. Somtimes I find it best to look for a well centered 84's than to pull the trigger on an 86 while paying more just for the number grade. Ive slowly progressed a bit to look for more well centered cards. But I must make this point, im looking more twords completion at this point so 86's in cards I don't have in my set are pretty tempting.
