Based on the larger scan above, I would say that in my opinion, there are three possibilities:

1. The slab/flip itself is fake
2. The slab and flip are real; but the slab was opened, the original card was pulled out, a fake or worse condition card was inserted, and the slab was resealed
3. PSA made an egregious mistake in grading that card. There is no way, IMHO, that that particular card is anything higher than a 1. It has noticeable staining, damage in Matty's hair, and the top-right corner is missing. Who knows what the back looks like?

Either way, I would run far away from that card.
