The first thing I noticed when I looked at this specimen is the overall eye appeal. It is really great. That is what I was hinting around in my last post. I am not saying that is what happened as I have no more info than anyone else. But it (a high price) can definitely happen and on a Ruth card like that.

If people big up because of centering and general look of card that's something I can get behind. I am always an advocate of those two things but it's not always a big factor in pricing.
