You can't expect better than a 1 (only thing lower is authentic) with a pin hole on it.

Is the tape still attached or just the residue from it?

Why grade it - if you like it, that should be enough to solidify its place in your collection. What do you care what some guy elsewhere thinks about it. Sorry, must have lost my mind for a second.

There is always a slim chance that you may get a 7.

Or, if you do get a 1, you could pull a Dmitri Young and keep resubmitting until it gets bumped up, and continue doing that until you eventually get a 7.

Insert smiley face here,

Doug: My dying brain cells must have missed something: did Young try resubmitting his contract to the Tigers, or is he a card collector?

Dmitri Young is selling his collection, many are graded 10, at least one spent time in a 9 holder, which he resubmitted, reportedly multiple times.

Here is the thread :

In answer to your specific question : I do not know if he collects cards, but he seems to be a collector of higher numbered flips.
