Default The World's Nicest PSA 7

Just got this in from eBay. When I was checking over the scan on eBay, I couldn't see any glaring issues why this card was graded so low, so I figured there was a crease or dimples on the card.

Got it in hand and did a high res scan along with a glance over the loupe and I am having a tough time seeing why this card got knocked down to a PSA 7.

I am going to crack and re-sub. Should have it back in a few days. Follow along for any/all updates.

Undergraded, yeah, but not by much. Based on the photos, I'd say it's a PSA 8.

I have a 2001 Topps Gold Label Jeter PSA 7 that looks like a PSA 10. I cant find anything wrong with it, even under magnification. Unless theres a small crease somewhere, I got no idea what could be wrong.

Can't be a small crease; that would knock it down to a 5 (surface wrinkle on one side) or 4.

Only thing I think it could be is slight warp and mylar holding it in, or back edge curling not visable?
One of the only reasons I use BGS...at least I can see why they made the conclusion. Wether its off or spot on.

Grading modern cards is a joke. Albeit a lucrative one... but a joke nonetheless.

Looks like you made a purchase that you can file under "buy the card not the grade"

Good luck with the re-sub. Curious to see what it comes back at.

On a side note - how are you submitting to get it "back in a few days"? With current submission times & grading costs wouldn't it be cost prohibitive for this card to get that quick of a turnaround?

There has to be something other than those corners. Maybe a slight indention somewhere?

Very interested in seeing what it comes back as.

Unfortunately with the colored borders the white tips stand out and PSA hammers modern cards more than vintage for these small issues. I will say that I would not be surprised to see it 8 though.
