Default Opinions on this 55T Koufax

Thoughts on this 55T Koufax? With the number of reprints out there, I'd really like second opinions. Thanks.

While I'm far from an expert, I'd say this one's good.

I'm no expert but if Grifters are now simulating warps in cards they're taking it to a new level.

Nice, original card. But that notch in the border will keep the grade pretty low, I’d think.

Thanks. I was thinking it might grade at VG. Is that too optimistic?

VG+ is completely reasonable. Good eye appeal.

Pretty Koufax, that’s one of my all time favorite cards. I particularly like that it is a free range specimen. I also seem to recall that it was a 56 Koufax Brian Rusk found in the case at Needful Things? Thankfully, I have both versions already and neither cost me my soul. However, at today’s prices a collector may have to pay that dearly for a nice one.

I think will grade a 2.5 a good eye appeal one. Just a couple crease won't give a higher grade

I think that is a PSA 3 all day long. With the eye appeal of this card, maybe even 3.5.
