PSA/BGS 8 (NM-MT): How Do They Look


TP9 | VC15
Oh, wow! Yeah, that's terribly off. How odd that there can be that much difference in the front and the back. Luckily for your grade the back doesn't play as big a role in the grade.
I have read and been told that bigger named players and HOF members can get graded more harshly. Like the name and picture on the card have anything to do with the physical condition of the card.
This is part of the problem in my opinion with grading. Subjective based on who the player is, or how much money someone spends on getting cards graded, or some other other factor. None of that should be relevant, a card should be a card no matter what player, what value, who sent it, etc., etc., etc.
