Default What would this card grade? (54 Bowman Mays)

This card looks really sharp in my hand, but I tend to miss some things. As a result, my two submissions have come back about two grades below where I thought that they would on average.

In my '54 Bowman set, my #65 Mantle and #66 Williams are both 6's (I bought them already slabbed). I would like to get the Mays graded to have the big three cards in holders and I would hope that Mays would be a 6 as well. However, if it comes back a 4, I will be bummed.

Can the experts take a look at the scans and tell me +/- what you think it would grade and if it would be worth getting it put into the slab?

When I look at the image, the corners are much sharper in hand. If you look at the back of the card image, that feels more representative.

Thanks a bunch
Kevin

I would say it's a 5.5-6.5 range.

Nice card. Hard to tell not in hand. Lower right looks a bit touched. My initial reaction was 6.

I'd be very surprised if that got less than a 6.

Did you compare it to the other 6's you have?

Yes - that is what made me think it could get there. It really pops out of the binder, but then I thought it could be wishful thinking. I would love a 6 for consistency but it sounds like 5 is the overwhelming feedback.

I know that guy well. He seems to get the majority of my submissions...

Might not grade. Did you measure the card?
