    @AC Slater

    @Ilovethe80s Bottom line: PSA does whatever it wants

    Yeah, I won't even bother to check their policies. What they say and what actually happens differs. I do think the "authentic" label is a hedge for them to not have an unhappy customer and put something in a slab they cannot give a grade to if they suspect something. PSA is kind of a joke, but I would still trust it over a random dealer telling me the condition of the card. But the buyer still needs to do their own evaluation of the card to judge whether or not it is worthy of the cost.

    From all the discussions i saw on this, BGS got the nod over PSA each time due to its .5 incremental system and it having been the industry standard for a longer period of time, especially for older cards. Strangely enough, in our hobby, PSA is preferred. I think we can all infer why based on their loose policies. I'd like to see more BGS graded cards. When i do see someone use BGS it's usually for international cards. Grant_ant has used them a lot for his israeli cards seing that they actually recognize most foreign cards. Im thinking of getting my loucomania graded with them for shits and giggles.

    This guy said it best

    @Darkpersian If your looking to grade cards for resale I suggest you get your cards graded by PSA as they sell a lot better then BGS. PSA 10s always sell better then BGS 9.5 despite the cards be exactly the same condition or in some cases the BGS is better.

    and that is why, in our hobby comprised of 95% dealers, 5% collectors, the majority of people use PSA. ALL ABOUT THE MONEYY MONEY MONEY 

    i need to find a normal hobby...

    @AC Slater Slab does not equal grade. I think they will slab anything "authentic".

    Let me rephrase, wasn't saying slab=grade. What i meant to say is they won't slab cards hand cut from uncut sheets (it's in their policy). They still do it of course, but it's not standard procedure perse.

    Interesting discussions about these topics here:
    http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=83575
    http://www.freedomcardboard.com/forum/showthread.php/75384-Is-it-ok-Slabbing-SHEET-CUT-cards

    Edit: Found this interesting bit of info:

    My understanding is that as a general matter they will give them a numerical grade if the cut is outside the border and an authentic grade if the cut is inside the border, so in effect there is a minimum size requirement.

    http://www.net54baseball.com/showpost.php?p=575871&postcount=2

    So that could hint to the fact that this card is slightly smaller. It's confusing though because that seems to be their policy for "hand Cut" cards, those deemed not to have come from an factory made uncut sheet.

    this psa slabbed card should have gotten some kind of notation. Seems too vague.

    edit: don't care anymore to waste my time on this. IF anyone has better information have at it.

    Bottom line: PSA does whatever it wants

    I Ilovethe80s posted in krazy fanart .

    @AC Slater Really nice!! I am curious about the blanks. Do they have anything printed on the back?

    the backs are blank. The sellers name is: Jason Schwartz

    Here's the rates for those blanks

    25/$15
    50/$27
    100/$50
    225/$100

    $4 shipping for unlimited cards

    I am asking him about international rates so maybe el smetcho, jay, keithout and others here can get them too.

    Krazy, nice inking dude

    @AC Slater lol, @ilovethe80s, your quotes support what I said. If they were altered (cut from a sheet) then they would not be able to assign a grade, but they might say it's "authentic".

    If im reading it correctly, they will not grade (slab) a card from an uncut sheet (that is cut) at all. The os1 sheet i linked to in my last post was diecut. In fact the last 2 that sold on ebay were both die cut.

    What PSA seems to have determined is that this card is not from an uncut sheet, what we don't know is, if it's a proof card or part of the regular release.
