Default Question on '83 Topps graded Sandberg

Hi all. Just looking for opinions here. I have this Beckett graded Sandberg which comes in at a "9." If you look at the sub grades, the card is gem mint 9.5 on corners, centering, and edges. Pretty spectacular card. The card received an 8.5 for surface which knocked it down to a 9. It's tough to tell here in the pic, but the front surface looks immaculate to me. The only issue I can see is on the reverse, just under the M in Montreal at the bottom, there is a small factory blot of some sort. My question is this: would this card command a premium because of the gem mint subgrades (3 out of 4), or am I just stuck with a "normal" 9 value here.

How many 9.5s or 10s are out there? I'm guessing alot since they made a million of these so I'm betting you're stuck with 9 value.

It may be a sheet cut card, given the lower sub on the surface. Check for scratches or gloss imperfections holding it under a light at an angle.

I hear ya, I just thought it was a shame that the card would only sell for 40-50 bucks (9 value). PSA 10 copies are listed and have been sold in the 300 dollar range on eBay. Would it be worth trying to cross to PSA in hope of a 10? Would it even have a shot at a 10 with the small imperfection on the reverse? I really checked the front surface again, it looks incredible, I couldn't find anything. It's also not sheet cut, I pulled it from a pack. I think Beckett has been overly harsh here. I only sent it to Beckett because my local dealer offered to include it with his bulk stuff for next to nothing. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks, guys.

I doubt it, but it doesn't hurt to try if you're fine with it even dropping. As ism the centering will actually have it sell a little over a standard 9 value, IMO.

Thanks, Swarmee. I agree. I think I will keep it as is and simply put a premium on it for the gem mint grades of centering, corners, and edges. Still stinks, tho. Card is a 10 in my opinion, but what do i know

Looks a touch oc side to side. They have really tightened up on centering for psa 10s not sure that card gets there. For any shot though it would have to be cracked out. The odds of it crossing from a 9 to a 10 are not great. Id think like lottery odds level not great.

So you're saying he's got a chance...
