The description on the Morris is really minimal.

"One of over 15,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 6th Auction of 2016. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots."

https://www.pwccmarketplace.com/items/1316003

It's a strange case, I believe they're the same card.
But the new scan shows some surface specks the old scan doesn't.
Maybe a difference between running the scanner with speck removal or not?
The other things I notice are the mark/damage mid right, and the upper left corner.
I can't tell from the scans exactly what's going on there.
It's possible the bit on the right is either paper loss, or nearly paper loss where there's a flap folded over.
The upper right corner looks like it had a tiny crease, or layering that folded over.

If they're folded over layering, folding them back in place would be a somewhat gray area. PSA has done it (see the PSA 8 71 Topps on the postwar side) If the folded over bits looked like leaving them alone would make them fall off, I would probably fold them back into place. (Risky, if they're that bad, folding them back in place can make them come off. )
If they're rebuilt paper loss and a rebuilt corner that's not good.

If it was mine, I'd print the earlier scan, write up what I think was done and just keep that together with the card.
Unless you can get a decent return and find another.

I skated for a few days without any, but now have had two PWCC purchases show up on Captain Spaulding's list. Both were low grade Southern Leaguers. I couldn't find any Whitman111 prior purchases of those cards on VCP to do my own detective work, and they aren't obviously worked on (if at all), but it still sucks. I have no plans to sell, but there will always be a taint on them as they sit in my collection. No doubt there are more.

Every time you see another outed card, a whole sub is underneath it. Keep that in mind when people try to spin this.

Bumping this. If people care, I would encourage you to check your cards against this list and keep in mind new certs are being outed every day, meaning the underlying subs including those certs are at least in doubt. Unless and until we get comprehensive lists from PWCC or PSA, people are going to have to do their own diligence, if it matters to them. If it seems overwhelming, limit the focus to significant cards purchased from PWCC.

I was always curious about why so many cards consigned to PWCC were newly graded.....

Can someone design an app or a spreadsheet that we can all use to plug in our cert numbers and the app or spreadsheet would turn back any matches to cards on the suspect list? Surely with all of the brain power we have someone on this board or BO cards can do this...

Probably bought 4 or 5 cards from pwcc, all low grade. Funny my co assignments didnt get much action. It must have been lack of eye appeal, or no chance to improve them

This consignor must have been happy. This card is, to put it mildly, abundant in PSA 10 and sells for 125-150. There are probably 5+ BINs on ebay right now at this price. PWCC sold one for over 400.

That's one thing I've never understood. They sell so many cards that are what I call commodity cards at non-commodity prices. What possible reason is there for their PSA 10 (one of hundreds if not thousands, I'm too lazy to look it up) to sell for a multiple of anyone else's PSA 10. ESPECIALLY at a PSA 10. There's not supposed to be a lot of variation in 10's (besides altered and un-altered) I mean there is no sticker for a high-end 10, right?

I have no idea. But of course we see these record-obliterating, inexplicable prices all the time from PWCC, and inevitably someone comes on to defend them, so I'll wait.

There are plenty of cards I wouldn't question, but Aikman and Mattingly make no sense.

It's a ruse to find new unbeknownst consignors, new material for moser to work on, and commissions to be collected. .I knew it, but had to see for myself. It's ok if the winning bidder is the consignor and planned on paying, right Betsy?

Some recent vintage PWCC prices compared to immediate comps. These were cards I was watching (and in the case of the Brown Lenox, that I won), which sold in this past auction for less than recent prior sales. There are many more -- as I watched many T206's and early cards sell for relatively cheap in this auction. Perhaps it was because of all the trimming/altered press. Perhaps its because nobody shilled these cards. I don't know, but the point is that while so many PWCC cards go for crazy prices (and I can name a few other AHs where that seems to happen), not all cards do. Spend what you are willing to spend; that's what I do and why I rarely am the high bidder on PWCC auctions.

1. T206 McQillan w/ bat, Brown Lenox, PSA 1: sold at PWCC for $8,600 was previously sold by REA on 10/28/18 for $9,000

2. E106 wagner Batting, PSA 5: sold at PWCC for $8,200, was previously "sold" by Mile High for $9k+ on 6/10/19 and for $10k+ on 12/16/18

3. E98 Cobb, Red, PSA 9: Sold at PWCC for $29.5k -- According to VCP, there have been 14 sales of E98 Cobb PSA 9s since 2013, and only once did an example sell for less than then PWCC one. t

4. E104-1 Mack SGC 1 ("Worlds Chanls"): Sold at PWCC for $355. Prior to that the same card sold at PWCC in February for $598, and before that, the same card traded at Mile High and Greg Bissneau (in 2014 and 2010, respectively) for approx $600.

I'm breathing a sigh of relief; none of my stuff is listed. However, I only checked against the PSA holders. Has anyone identified any SGC cards affected? I would guess no, given the goal was to maximize the $$$

Last I looked there were only a couple SGC. Probably failed PSA too many times.

It would be a massive undertaking as well as the need for huge hobby support to launch a new company. From day one you will have people trying to ding your credibility so being transparent is a must. At some point an altered card of some sort will seep through and the minuscule error will cost you reputation points you cant afford to lose as a new business. You also have to worry about staffing and detailed training, greedy staff, and insider fraud. If that is not enough both PSA and SGC have very good attorneys, deep assets/vested interest in the hobby, and great legal teams. Even if you are right 100% and have ample evidence against them you still lost because you would be broke before you got notice of a hearing. PSA and SGC both have their skeletons but that is the options the hobby is stuck with because that is what it wants. Educate yourself about the cards you are buying and stop giving your money away to people you don feel are credible.

Dunno, I am not involved and all I have read is their statement that they are working with law enforcement.

I really wish Jeff L. would chime in. The more that I look into this, the more suspicious everything seems to be, and the more shocking it is, and the more guilty these fraudsters are... I always knew and suspected about the bid shilling with PWCC, but this is a whole different ball game. I'm just wondering what the legal system could possibly do. This guy and his wife have made a ton of money obviously doing things illegally....I can just about bet the house on this though....Ebay won't do a damn thing about it!

Color me a simple-minded purist I guess but, monetary values aside, this just makes me sad. Take for instance the T206 Lundgren that was at the top of one of the exposed lists. It was "improved" from a PSA 2.5 to a PSA 6. That was a nice looking 100 + year old card I would have been proud to own just as it was. I would have been happy to have cracked it out and placed it in my binder. Now, it has been tainted, altered, whatever you want to call it. Its value as a pure historical artifact has been ruined IMO.

Geez... look at the amount of air space between the card's left border and the left edge of the recessed portion of the slab. You could fit 2 strands of spaghetti (or 4 vermicelli) into that gaping void.

And the right side trim job is horrendous- especially at the top right corner. A shame that they ruined a very nice "5". Can't the idiot at PSA immediately see that there is 50% more white border top-to-bottom, than there is left-to-right? It really makes one believe that this "oversight" could be intentional.

NEAR MINT... what a joke! More fine quality work from your “friends” at PSA.

The world will truly never know... but apparently you don't even have to be much slicker than him. Many of these alterations are readily apparent at first glance!

We now have photos of Moser, Orlando and "Brentsy" Huigens. How about a nice group shot of PSA's grading staff...

Any actual lawsuits yet on behalf of a buyer of a PSA graded card in which he submits the card was negligently graded previously and PSA and the buyer didnt feel whatever PSA offered to him/her was enough to to resolve the issue so a lawsuit was filed?

If zero lawsuits with all of those buyers of these 'issue' cards, then we need to just drop the issue of the law coming to play into this.

Speechless at these Leaf Baughs. The number of registry sets affected could be significant.

A month is a long time. When you hear of any issue in the news...its only takes a few days to hear of a lawsuit filed ..but i get it that baseball card collecting isnt the BP oil spill

There is also statute of limitations issue but fraud usually can extend those timelines etc...

There is a rush sometimes in large cases because plaintiffs' lawyers are competing to be the first-filed suit. 99 percent of people who own these cards don't even know about them yet probably. And people would have to go through the review process with PSA first as well.

A month isnít a long time at all. Efforts are being made to get refunds from various parties without the need for expensive litigation. Why would someone sue unless there is no other recourse? And the fraud has just been uncovered. Thatís when the statue of limitations just starts to run. This thing is in the bottom of the first inning.

I think heís confusing class action litigation - which isnít happening here - with individuals suing under the PSA guarantee.

And it's hard to sue on the guarantee unless you've first asked PSA to make good on the guarantee and weren't satisfied with the outcome.

LOL of course. But there should be a flood of $1000 lawsuits nevertheless by now. Even as refunds are being paid.
