Ouch, SGC missed the boat on this one. I guess this is why some PSA purists believe qualifiers are necessary and that SGC is too lenient with bad centering cards.

Their grading scale says an 84 must have 70/30 centering or better, does the Brett card qualify?

It looks about the same as this card, razor sharp and off center.

The Brett looks like its a 84 to me, yes OC but still a very nice sharp card and within the grade imo.

Garcia I can see as a NM card. But not the Brett. Not sure if it technically meets the centering specs (probably not), but the eye appeal of those colored borders ruin it for me. But again, I like the Garcia. I'd pay NM value for that card.
