I would recommend getting this graded somehow. Very risky to purchase a high value card like this without the grading of at least authentic by one of the grading companies. If authentic, would be an awesome card to own!

I agree. It's hard to find someone willing to spend that kind of money on a card like this ungraded.

A PSA 1 got over $5000 get it encased and you are going to get a lot more than $1100

Do N9 psa cards show up on the website's cert verifications? This one didn't come back when I entered the numbers.

I'm not exactly sure I just know I was on the phone with them for an hour trying to figure it all out and they told me since it's a N9 it's officially certified to be real just not encased

N9 - items we do not grade due to being an obscure issue or not fitting in our holders (N9)

PSA grade these cards - nearly 500 in the pop report. are they saying the card is too damaged (potentially) for them to grade? seems like they are afraid to remove it from the current holder. if so, i would be leery as well.

When i called them and asked why it couldnt be encased they said they were worried about its "long term health" being encased. Its been moved from 2 different top loaders until we put it in this PSA sleeve
