The reason you see an inconsistant application of the "OC" qualifier from PSA is the submitter has the choice to specify "no qualifiers" when submitting. If a card is MINT but centered 70-30, it could get a 9OC or, at best, a straight 8 with no qualifiers depending on how the order is specified. In that case, a vending card centered 90-10 could still get a grade that represents the overall condition of the card. Without the qualifier, it would be difficult to distinguish a card that has rounded corners and creases from a vending crisp card that suffers from poor centering. I always submit requesting "no qualifiers" and would have no problem eliminating them but it doesn't affect me one way or the other because I don't purchase qualified cards. I don't really see how this inconsistant application of applying the standard affects the purchase of cards. Both PSA and SGC have published standards for centering and, without a scan of the card, you have to assume there is a potential the card is centered at the limit for a given grade. If the seller omits the "OC" qualifier in the description, then they are misrepresenting the item.

Are you assuming no image is available? Why couldn't you just ask?

Because if I do, a certain person will immediately go on the attack.

Matthew,

"Attack" is the operative word used when someone who is anonymous is afraid to debate an issue "straight up" or with his/her identity known. There's a word for this type of response, but I think you already know it.

My problem with SGC is simple. Lack of a market. I had 3 1976 Baseball commons end tonite with an opening bid of 99 cents. Anyone care to guess how many got a bid????????????? ZERO!!!!!!!!!! When I spend 5 bucks on grading fees and don't get a bid for a buck I AM FINISHED.

Anonymous,

Not to doubt your story, but I see no ended auctions that fit the description of what you have written. Perhaps eBay is experiencing delays and has not listed them yet. Did you list them on Yahoo or somewhere else?

Could you perhaps list the specific auctions you are referring to? Perhaps there is someone here who would be interested in purchasing the three cards.

I would guess this card is one of them.

Sorry about being anonymous but for some reason this website does not accept my password.
