Default How could PSA Grade this Mantle???????

As many of you know, I am NOT a graded collector nor a fan of TPG's. Here is one reason why. How could PSA grade this card????? NOT AUTHENTIC, but a VG 3!!!!

It is cut way down and missing the frame!!

See the graded one first, then what it really looks like.

Not sure "how," but I know "why." PSA and the others will grade anything for the right price.

If borders don't matter, then get ready for what's going to happen next…

I was a bit surprised when I was this a couple of years ago. I wonder if this is the only way it will fit in their holders? I actually like it better, and the colors on the PSA one are great. Of course, I would never trim mine down.

Get in touch with PSA and have them buy it back, and regrade it correctly.

SGC did it with mine yrs ago. Of course, mine had the picture frame/borders. It got a numerical grade. The slab was barely large enough for it.
