Based on your new trailer - it sounds like you may be interested in viewing this card.

My collection is small potatoes to a lot of other message board posters, but I have enjoyed today's thread and the opportunity to share some of my cards with everyone - enjoy.

Old, dense-headed hammers are cool. Best nail pounders.

Apparently aconte is checking is people read his posts!

I believe that this very fine '64 Topps Giant of Clemente is significant for 2 reasons...(1) it was aconte's first SGC graded card and (2) an image of it adorns the SGC traveling booth.

Did I pass?

Everyone,

This is the most I have ever posted on the board in one day - take a look at this card - just back from SGC - part of a PSA cross-over. I think a serious undergrade - anyone with a better understanding of '62's willing to chime in with their opinion. I thought a solid 88 - granted, the lines may get blurried with the half-grade system - but this seems like a pretty solid card. Upper right is the only corner that shows a touch - I've owned much worse SGC 88's. Take a look - if nothing else - its another card to view.

Take it easy.

STMF,

I agree -- awfully sharp card.

What holder/grade was it originally in? I just got 3 more x-overs back and wasn't exactly excited with the grades. 2/3 of them were "straight x-overs" and the fourth went from an SBC-88 to an SGC-84 ('63 Aaron, I thought it would be a lock for an 86 and might even cross over straight)

I had previously had very good results with BGS (not BVG) x-overs for 68T. I had one BGS-7.5 go to an SGC-92 and a BGS-8.0 also go to a 92 in an earlier order. In my recent order, a BGS-7.5 '68T Clemente came back as an 86. It is, without a doubt, the nicest 86 in my '68 set (I checked every one at 10X) and just as nice as a good number of my 88's. Another BGS-8.0 went straight to an SGC-88 holder (76T #1, Aaron AT RBI). Oh well.

I think that they must be getting tired and cranky from cracking plastic in Parsippany. I certainly hope no one has been injured by the flying debris!

srs1a,

You pass with an A+ Scott. The card is pretty nice. My wife wouldn't mind
if I turned all my cards to cash but that one. She thinks it's cool.

STMF,

From the scan it looks like you got ripped. I don't know this set really well
but those corners and edges look pretty fine to me. Maybe the grader
of death that the Psa forum members talks about is pulling double duty
in the East Coast too. Regardless, looks sweet. I hope you can get an
explanation. Good luck!

Lothar52- Let this guy "corner" the BGS Emmitt market. You got the better deal with your SGC card. (Matter of fact you probably could have picked the card up cheaper). ProSet is a great looking card but vastly overproduced. I'm almost tempted to break down the few cases I have left and get them graded. At $100 per card, you can buy a case with the proceeds from 1 card sale. At 2-3 Emmitts per box, that's 50-75 Emmitt cards per 24 box case. If half grade BGS 9 (about 30-35 cards), you are looking at $3,000-$3,500 profit per case. Sounds almost too easy to me. I guess I'll be opening some packs this weekend.

"GOING TO WIN ANOTHER IN FEW DAYS FROM NOW.ANYWAY"

You should bid this joker up on every single one in the future. Whats the most he's paid? Bid a nickle below that on all future auctions of the card.
