    How did this card grade a PSA 9?

    I was searching ebay and came across item # 372455524584, a 2001 Bowman Albert Pujols auto PSA 9. I asked the seller if the smudge in lower right corner was on the case or card and he said it was on the card. Why would it grade a PSA 9 with the smudge?

    Is it maybe that effect that happens when a case is too tight and presses on the card?

    Yeah, that wet look is caused by the uneven surface of a glossy card pressing against a plastic case.

    Probstein said it was on the card. I hope it is not a Pujols smudge

    I'm almost positive it's not on the card...it looks like it is, but I think he's mistaken. I can recreate the look with my own cards. If it's not so tight in the holder that the card can't be shifted, I'd bet, the smudge would look different with a good shake.
