I'd want that baby hand delivered. Nevermind trusting the mailBeauty of a card! They've recently dropped it to $950,000 obo. I might have to put in an offer if it drops any further.
Honestly though, if I was buying a card for nearly $1,000,000 I don't think I'd be too concerned about $1,100 in shipping. My biggest concern would be actually receiving it especially with all of the mailing issues that everyone's been dealing with.
Nope, not anymore. I didn't look at it that closely and SGC has a pretty good reputation for vintage grading. May very well be over-graded actually, although I am not a resident vintage expert like a lot of folks here.Am I the only one who noticed the crease that runs all the way through the back and well as part of the front of the card? How on earth is that a 7?
Are you talking about through the "hits" column on back? I think that is some sort of print mark, if so. Does not look like a crease to me.Am I the only one who noticed the crease that runs all the way through the back and well as part of the front of the card? How on earth is that a 7?
What I see when I blow it up on the back is it appears to start in the red border running through the A and R in CHARLES and continues across the card until it looks like it stops just above the 0 in 360 in the Life Time hits column.Are you talking about through the "hits" column on back?

I agree it looks like a printing streak. I have several ‘50s cards with similar printers ink lines. I doubt SGC would miss a crease like that. A ‘52 Topps Mantle would be scrutinized and inspected much more closely than other cards.I think it is some sort of printing flaw personally. It's too obvious for it to be a crease and have a grade like that.
It's new to me too, but this is a decent thread on it: Fractional Asset Companies Thread - Blowout Cards Forums (blowoutforums.com)Who are the known ones out there? I'm unfamiliar with that side of the hobby....it's still new to me.
