If we bet, you can't bid.

I sold my crispy clean SGC 50 Green Cobb two years ago, and have been really sweating the rising prices. I was SHOCKED when it was resold by Goodwin just a couple of weeks ago for "only" $6,400. The reason -- CENTERING!

Top to bottom centering like this never bothered me on a T206, but it obviously keeps this card out of the stratosphere!

It's the debate we always have. Why do some cards explode and other don't. Why the Eddie Plank card? Why Chief Bender? The card has the wow factor. I will never buy one and never own one yet every time I see the card I think "wow, that's a beautiful really really neat card." (Sanitized reaction of course. Actual reaction more like "damm, that's an 'effin great card.")

In my opinion, the issue with this card is not as much the top-bottom OC, as it is the fact that his name is partially cut. The card is virtually miscut and I think you are smart to have sold it when you did. Minor top-bottom OC that does not effect the name does not bother me (see this Cobb by comparison -- sorry the pic sucks, the card is much prettier in person)

I love the smell of the REA catalog in the morning.

In the morning. In the afternoon. Pretty much anytime!
