Here is the pop report.

The winning bidder on the PWCC looks very legit and with the Heritage sale taking place prior I think it is much more likely the seller was pissed with the final price and the buyer thrilled.

Wow David, I read those two auctions the opposite of what they really were. Guess I'm getting cynical in my old age. 😀 Thanks for setting me straight!

I can't speak for if the Heritage sale went through or the PWCC and obviously there have been a lot of bogus auctions over the past few years and probably always.

I am not a big fan of hand cut cards personally and if there was a pack issued card of him from this year I think it would make the 15k look cheap.

Personally I don't own any Clay/Ali cards but he does have a lot of great cards out there to choose from so I could see him being highly collected and this is a very early Clay so it has to be worth something. The fact that the Pop is only 4 with no 10's helps support this price. Everyone knows the card is considered valuable who is in the hobby so you could make the bet it will stay low. Time will always tell on how many pop.

I can't speak for the grading standards, only for the fact that some have the J. Look on ebay, there is a guy who specifically touts his cards that way.

Those T220's went pretty high for commons. Hope the lower-grade ones stay dirt cheap, love collecting this set and all its variants

I had no idea that 105 of them have been graded to date.......good amount although not a whole lot when thinking about Ali.

Some people assume that you can just cut the card and get a high grade but it doesn't work that way. In fact, many times you will find that a panel has a crease or bend and no amount of cutting is going to be able to fix it. I made my hand cuts and just found out that I got a PSA 5 for my Hemmets Cassius Clay. I'll be happy with this one in my collection.

An abrasion on the back is also very common.

The stock of the paper is between flexible and cardboard stock (semi-rigid)....so any bend on that card stock would probably drop the overall grade to a PSA 5 at best.
