    Someone is really going to get screwed on this Mike Trout auto that is not an auto.

    We all know these deckles aren't autographed.

    Why does BGS struggle with this?


    We see this way too much.

    A bidder on the card, that raised it past $170, has over 10,000 feedback. Could be a low pop card but certainly is a dumb screw-up by BGS.

    It's not listed on the population report as an autograph. Only two have been graded, both 9.5.

    Not the first time they've done this. I wonder if they do it just to make an extra $2 on the auto grade, like it's a conscious thing. But don't you have to mark it as an auto on the order form anyway? If the submitter thought it was a real auto and marked the box, I guess BGS isn't going to take the trouble to correct it, amend the order form, change the amount to be charged, etc. Although they certainly should.

    Curious if they've ever given a facsimile auto a grade of 9 before. That would be hilarious.

    I was thinking the same thing, only thing that would have made this better.

    BGS definitely has an issue with this. I'm not sure how anyone grading these could look at the card and think it is a real auto if they looked at it for more than 2 seconds.

    All grading companies have their issues but I just don't trust BGS. I saw that they encapsulated and authenticated an ACEO sketch card as a 1/1. I find that disgusting.

    Found it:

    ACEO sketch card 1/1's are annoying enough as it is, but that's f-ed up.
