A PSA 7 is an easy sell for what he is asking. A PSA 8 he should be able to get double or more. It makes no sense to me that the seller would not try to cross it and just let it sit unsold on EBay.

That's a boatload of moolah to lay out for such a desired card in this slab. Begs the question: why not in a PSA slab? Think there is a reason?? What troubles me is the daylight gap from the top of the card to the bottom of the gasket. Unless it is a poorly cut gasket, I'd take that as evidence of card trimming. Unless you are stinking rich, why take the gamble on a poss. five figure loss?

I'd be willing to take a chance on it if it had the right measurements and it was dramatically discounted.

I would agree, here is another 53 Topps and there is no gap on the top of the card.

That's an early GAI holder. I have broken many out and sent to one of the other grading companies and never lost more than half a grade. However there's always a first time. That's a lot of money to take a chance.

Default Someone's already been down this road...

Per VCP, looks like the card was sold by the same eBay seller (kcfutures9) in April 2017.

VCP: [4/10/17 eBay Image kcfutures9 m***2 Best Offer $15,999.00 ]

Anyone wanna guess the odds that someone did a quick submission to PSA for crossover and got told the card did not meet standards before returning it to kcfutures9?
Is 99% too high a guess...?
