Not pre war, but 2 that come to mind are a Doctor J rookie that I had slated as a 7.5 or 8. It had nice edges, corners, and front centering, but had a yellow print mark in addition to the normal fish eye, and horrible back centering. It came back a 9. Another was an 86 Jordan sticker. I thought I had cleaned all the wax off of it, but missed a small amount on the first sub and it came back 8 ST. I cracked it out, recleaned it, resubbed, and got a straight 9.

I'm also frequently surprised by the grades I get on 56 Topps. I have no idea why, but it seems like they're much more forgiving on that year vs 57-59.
