Default Does greening or hulking affect grade

Take a look at this Kobe 1996 Topps Chrome BGS 10 Pristine

I looked up the serial on BGS website and it shows as being graded on Monday, October 08, 2012.

There is a possibility that when the card was graded it didn't have any loss of color...but does it even matter?

Does greening or hulking affect overall grade for PSA & BGS?

Regardless of what the companies think, what is your opinion on the subject?

I don't like the hulking effect, I would rather grab his regular Topps RC in a PSA 10.
My collection can be viewed at

Always looking for interesting pre-war baseball & hockey postcards!
