front looks good...but apparent back damage. I'd say it's authentic for sure...there is a 7 day return policy as well!

Nice. Looks trimmed -corners. As Pete said, back damage prevents it from being a "PSA 4".

I bet someone tried to get it graded and it came back "evidence of trim"

Bottom right corner looks hooked to me(trim?)on the card in question. Bottom left corner looks very sharp compared to the rest as well.

Edited to say, I'd keep looking.

Someone should tell this seller to invest in a better camera or scanner. Superior merch photos result in
superior prices, and this is especially the case with BASEBALL CARDS. Duh!

Why would a card that looks like that (very nice) not get graded??

I dont know what damage there is on the back. Looks like normal 'bleed through' to me.

When I see a card this nice that is not slabbed, it just throws up a red flag to me.

In no way trying to be negative, but the left side corners look pretty darn pointy. Hard to stay that sharp after 74 years. But the photo is fuzzy. But the sharp corners speak loud and clear.

Guys,

It also bothers me that this seller has other vintage cards for sale and they are all ungraded. Apparently, this guy knows his stuff, so why isn't he getting his stuff graded...red flag.

Peter

It would be a bigger red flag if his other vintage cards WERE graded and this one wasn't. If all aren't graded maybe he doesn't like grading companies?

In seller's FDBK profile it is obvious that this seller doesn't deal in graded cards. All his recent
sales have been "naked" cards.

I have had and sold many 1933 Goudey Gehrig"s (#92 and #160) and I see nothing wrong with
this card.

Somewhat evident on the back of this card is the usual "bleed-thru". typical of many '33 Goudeys.

While it is unquestionably real I think one would be taking some risk buying it. It's already well over $1000, if it grades it's likely to be a 2, and it may not meet size requirements...sorry, but I don't like it.
