Default PSA 9 Question?

This card just sold on Ebay for $795. Am I seeing things or is that top border funky as can be? Bottom border appears straight and flush against the gasket so how can the top border look this bad?
Tell me its an illusion!
Peace, Mike

PS I just uploaded a pic of the back and it appears fine from the back so maybe its just the angle?

That's hilarious...I just sold some SGC 9's in the exact same set for a whopping $7. Just goes to show how powerful the drug of the PSA set registry is.

Looks like an illusion from the shadow of the plastic piece next to the top border. The card looks fine to me.

It looks like the top could show a slight bit of bowing. The natural curl of a card over time. That's my guess.
Check out my bucket(s). Virtually everything is available for trade:

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.
