It's funny you say that as I was also thinking the same thing, but due to my lack of knowledge/experience, and the fact I have never seen one in hand, I just assumed the flip was likely correct?

In my opinion, the front looks more grey than the back, but maybe that is a known fact and has been seen before or it could be the scan?

When I first seen it, I thought I have cards, even outside of the #131-190 series/range that look more grey than that, but I assume it has been proven, beyond a reasonable doubt that greys only exist within that, #131-#190 range?

I ended the listings so I can relist them with the "gray back" in the title..
so they go back up tonight at the same time they were listed for before.

The winner has the ability to have PSA review it and if PSA deemed it a regular back, it would be subject to their insured guarantee to downgrade the card and reimburse the owner the difference.

I've owned quite a few gray backs and have seen psa make 2 mistakes labeling them wrong.

#130 Sheldon Jones labeled gray back (wrong series)

#189 reiser sold in REAa few years back mislabeled as a gray back.


Are they any other examples of mislabeked grays to support your claim

It looks fine to me, and the obverse has the characteristic faded yellow look. I'd have no problem bidding on this.
