Default I love turning a $5 card into a $300+ card

I sent in 5 total cards. 3 9's a 4 (i didn't see the crease) and this bad boy. I knew it was nice. Pulled it from a vending box about 5 to 6 years ago. I just figured it was a nice 9.... A nice holiday present to myself.

You know how hard it is to find a well centered 1983 Topps card? Add in the set registry and you have cards that sell for crazy amounts in PSA 10 condition.

$50ish I believe... I was filling a set with them. I know I had two Sandbergs as I checked the one in my set isn't that nice.

I thought maybe you added a really great fake patch, just kidding. Congrats on the grade!

Pretty much. Only 3% out of the total number of this card that have been graded have been given the 10 designation.

Sweet! Going to be picking up a Sandberg Topps Rookie myself one of these days. Not quite that nice of a grade, though.
