I would have to imagine this is not the card he is referring to in the description.

"Classic 1909-11 T206 Card!! This would easily be a 3 or 4 if it were not for the light residue on the surface as there are no creases !! Please email with any questions!"

I agree that he couldn't be talking of the same card.

I've seen cards that have mold as a result of flood damage while still being in the graded slab. Not saying that happened to this card, but I have seen it happen.

But I think, based on the description ("if not for the light residue"), that they are referring to the same card. Something is very fishy here.

if that card is really in that slab... then it has to be the worst four in the history of TPG.

This is funny... And very deceiving.... He has placed a scan of the card over a PSA Holder scan... So now you know what it would look like if it were in a PSA 4 Holder...

According to the subtitle, it's in "Brand New" condition. That BIN has so many things wrong with it

It now reads, "This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available."

It seems to me that the item never existed...except maybe in the seller's imagination...and their Photoshop folder.

Sheesh, what will people think of next? Selling a T206 Wagner they don't actually own?

Oh, wait a minute...

PSA just forgot to add the "Hurricane Sandy" label, that's all.
