Default SGC "misses the mark", Seller shows back of card in the title

BLANTANT erasure on the top of the card, no front scan until you go all the way down in the ebay listing

You watch your tongue mister(s), that's a professional grading company you're talking about. Although to be fair, we don't know if anyone "cracked the case" and slipped that card in.

Default Sgc

SGC allows cards with eraser or pen/pencil marks. They do not use a MK symbol to identify it as a mark. I have a couple low grade cards that were graded by them with pencil and eraser marks on them as well. I believe they just factor that in when they give the card its grade.

With those corners and the wrinkle on the left border I would say it is a 3.5 without taking the erased writing into account.

They do allow a variety of faults as taken into account when figuring the grade.

I do think they went too easy on this one.

I had one T206 that I've had since around 81/82 that looks really good and came back a 40. When I asked at the Shriners show they showed me the very light erasure on the back. I hadn't noticed it in the 30+ years I've owned it. The same for the other very nice one that was a 50. Just a tiny crease on one border. One that's hard to see without a magnifier.

The guy I spoke to said the grade was a cumulative grade so 2-3 tiny faults could make the difference between 80 and 50.

I felt a lot more confident in the grades after the explanations and being shown the small faults.


I do also think that some of the cards I've seen recently have gotten rather lenient grades. (Including one I had done at the show)

I've never seen one with writing, or erasure, grade higher than a 1.5
