Default Show your incorrectly oriented slabbed cards!

Always thought this card of Joss was cool looking, but it looks like SGC made an error and placed it the wrong way in the holder...the viewer shouldn't have to read upside down.

The grading companies really love to slab horizontal cards so that Top to Bottom becomes Left to Right. Which hurts some sets as the backs of the cards weren't always consistent and it turns some backs upside down.

Unfortunately the vast majority of my collection is raw, so I didn't have any upside down graded ones to share. Sorry to out your card and listing, but if I were to purchase the card I would have to store the dang thing upside down.

The horizontals are the only cards that I've seen slabbed upside
down. Wonka had some of his rare backs slabbed with the
backs on the front, I see some of them listed occasionally.

I think this miscut name at the top fooled SGC.

Is it too much to ask for each card to go in the same direction?

Just be thankful they didn't orient some diagonally.
