Nice looking card, but how did it get the 8 grade, it appears that ALL the corners have a touch of wear. This is why I have a really tough time with high end graded cards.

wish the scan had a black background so it would be clearer.

wow, an 8? Are you kidding me? There isn't a sharp corner on that card. That doesn't warrant a NM grade, let alone NM-Mt grade. A nice looking card, but not even a NM example.

What a rough card...

These guys are right, corners and all look sad. I'd say the kid who first had that card used it to scrape gum off of sidewalks, and to clean his finger nails.

I'll give you $40 for it, I could use it for a filler, it is one of the few I still am after. If you will take that for it, bust it out of the plastic and I'll send you an SASE.

With kind regards,

Frank.

I am glad someone thought that Cobb was overgraded. i have some Psa 5s that look that good. It still is a very nice card though, would love to have it in my collection.

Frank, contrary to your sarcastic remarks, and I even said so in my post, it is a nice looking card. This card is the perfect example for buy the card and not the holder, as there is no way this a legit 8. I can get sloppy on the grading of the cards I own, but when I can't see one sharp corner with just a cursory glance, I cannot jsutify calling a card NM, let alone NM/Mt. The grade on this card is a total joke. The flip may be impressive, but when you combine the card with the flip, the effect is underwhelming at best. Maybe I should submit this card and see if I can get an 8. At least it has 2 sharp corners. Then again, we all know that unless you submitted thru "prefered" sources, you aren't likely to get your cards overgraded (no aspersions meant toward Marshall since from what I know, he buys everything already slabbed).
