OK, at "10" prices, I'll take the Jackson, Ruth, and Mantle. Definitely true in these cases, the old saw of "nice for the grade".

Default I'll take any 2s that look like this



My lowest graded card. Tiny area of paper loss on the bottom back corner that doesn't affect any of the wording.

I don't mind the prewar cards as much with some paper loss on the back, which drives down the technical grade and thus the price. Here's an example.

I don't do much in the way of graded cards usually, but this one came with a nice price. Seemed under graded to me.

This graded a 1, even though one in worse overall condition (with similar border chipping) got a 2, and one got a 5 MC with obvious chipping since it totally broke the black outline in a few places.

In any case, for bragging rights alone, show us you most head scratching PSA 1s (or SGC 10s).
That is a super nice card.

Unless there is a pinhole or some kind of surface anomaly, I would guess that the PSA Inputter pressed "1" instead of "4" on the computer's keypad and the error wasn't caight.

I would send back to PSA for reevaluation.

It appears from the scan that there's paper loss all the way down the front right hand side of the card. If that's true then the grade is accurate.

You are correct, David. However I have a similar one graded as a 2 with the same paper loss down the left side. And then this one for comparison:

All 3 are from the same submission batch. The inconsistency for me is the head scratcher.

All in all, I still think it's great looking "Poor" card.
