Default PSA and Paper Loss

Hey, wanted to get input on how PSA treats paperloss on vintage cards. I have a 1949 Bowman Jackie Robinson card in an SGC holder, thinking about sending it to PSA. If anyone wants to straight-up guess what grade PSA would give it, that's cool, but I'm mostly just looking to get input on what the paper loss on the back would "cap" the grade at. Thanks!

If I had to guess Id say no higher than a 2. I havent been around too long but I dont recall seeing a card with paper loss graded higher than a 2. Maybe theyd bump it to 2.5?

Its painful to reduce so much for that, but Im thinking they gave a 1 or 1.5 for this.

2 at best, probably a 1.5, but it's a nice looking 1.5

Generally, I've seen PSA knock a card with paper loss like that down to a PSA 1.5. If they are feeling generous you might get a PSA 2.

1.5 for a really nice card (like yours), but a 1 for most. I have never seen 2 with paper loss. Nice Jackie.

Thanks everyone for the input. You guys are all sharp, this card is currently in an SGC 1.5 holder hah. I'll probably end up keeping it as is, but was curious about crossover potential. Thanks!

It has none...it is probably worth more in a PSA holder than an SGC holder, but don't expect any gifts.....PSA grades paper loss pretty harshly....but don't fret...you will still be able to ask a premium price because the card looks so nice.

I have seen PSA 5's with paper loss on the image (mostly T206s in old holders). But I immediately thought PSA 1.5 when I saw this one.

Heck, you can get 6's with Paper loss even! There seems to be paper loss for every grade imaginable.
