Hey guys, if a card (in this case a '53 Topps Shantz) had 2 very small spots on the reverse, would SGC give it an A, or would it just knock it down a couple of grades? The spots might be where the tip of a marker briefly touched the surface twice. Again, they are small.

SGC would probably just knock it down a couple of grades. The guys across the street would probably give it a MK (pencil/pen mark) qualifier.

Authentic is for cards that have been tampered with for improvement sake (trimming, recoloring, rebuilt corners, etc).

Agree with bbo, one note if the marks are on the corners they will sometimes give the card an Auth, same goes if they think they were used to cover up a problem in a black area then you can get an Auth also. 1971 Topps get this alot with someone using a sharpie on the border will make the card grade an Auth.

Thanks for the knowledge. The two little spots on my card are in the upper middle where there's nothing much to hide. Thanks again, I just wasn't positive. I try to avoid sending anything that would get labeled an A.
