Default PSA: What Am I Missing?

Two 1986 Leaf Fred McGriff cards, both from the same box, submitted to PSA in the same sub.





I don't have the cards back in hand yet...but an 8 and a 2? What am I missing here?

I'm guessing its a wrinkle or crease that you might not have noticed

Even a wrinkle or crease would probably bring it to a 3 in that shape...very odd grade

A grade disparity like that is either a mechanical error or the card has some water damage that you didn't notice.

Once I have the cards back in hand, I will take a closer look.

The cards came directly from an unopened box into a penny sleeve and card saver, after getting a once-over under a magnifying glass.

The other card I subbed from the box, a Nolan Ryan, came back a "9".

They do occasionally get cards wrong and highly over grade them. That could explain the PSA 8 grade.

Perhaps I've been looking at this whole thing the wrong way....maybe the glass ISN'T half empty!
