Default High Dollar Auction Gamble

Too risky for me but those who like to take risks, thought this would interest you to try to regrade. Its 33 Goudey Ruth graded NM+ by GAI.

Before you take the plunge, need to ask yourself why wasnt this resubmitted if it was such a high grade... or has it already tried?

All other lots have a picture associated with the lot, but not this card. The following is the item description:

Babe Ruth 1933 Goudey Baseball Card #144. Card was graded a NM+ 7.5 by Global Authentication Inc. The card was graded when this company was first in business having a silver lable. Global Authentication Inc was bought out and thier datebase is no longer available. A great looking card that should be graded by a PSA.

Just my 2 cents - GAI seemed to grade trimmed/altered cards, but early on I thought they were better than towards the end.

If the seller was serious about this card and believes it should be graded by PSA, then I would figure they would have popped it and sent it to PSA, else they are LEAVING a lot of cash on the table. If that card actually graded a 7.5 by PSA then the card could be sold for well over $10K from an auction house with a good reputation. Can't wait to see if the seller actually posts scans/pictures of the card.

Yes, there was. I think that Willoughby was the name of a mortuary.

And PSA doesn’t grade trimmed/altered cards numerically?

I like how lot 78a shows multiple pictures of Hartland Statues of Babe and Ted Williams but the description says that Williams has no bat. Umm...every picture shows him with a bat. What gives?? So many red flags wrt this auction house!! and I've been burned before on LiveAuctioneers with a different AH that sold through that site - Pioneer Auction Gallery. I know there are a few legit AHs on LiveAuctioneers, but I simply wouldn't take the risk of being burned again with a no-name company.
