Default Finally a grail acquired

This card is not hard to find in the grade given, however I have been looking a long time for one with a lot of eye appeal. So happy this one came up and I was able to snag it. Yes I over paid per grade, but I bought the card, not the grade. I just wanted a number grade card.




Before you ask why, it has a slight crease and has glue residue and a tiny amount of surface removal and some of the material from what it was removed from. Overal, a blazer for eye appeal.

Awesome card.....gotta ask...why do you think it was a 2? I agree with you that the eye appeal is WAY higher than a lot of 2's out there.

Nice card and my favorite type of grade. Great eye appeal but not technically high grade so the cost isn't as much. I would pay way more for that 2 than most others.

The staining on the back must of dragged the grade down because the front is beautiful and personally i think you picked well. Awesome iconic card that presents really well for the grade can't beat that.

Paper loss on the back. If you don't mind back damage, it is a good way to pick up nice looking cards for a cheaper price.
