Hey dudes,

I recently submitted a 1939 Play Ball Sample Hank Greenberg card that had been graded a BVG 1.5 to be crossed by SGC.

And this is what I got back from them

So, my question is three-fold.

1. Why would Beckett grade a card that did not meet it's size requirements?

2. What is the difference between a card being 'small' and being trimmed?

3. Do you think that since the nature of the card is a promotion, or a sample, that it cannot be judged against issued 1939 Play Ball cards' dimensions?

Please provide some insight, just looking for some answers right now.
