Already at $28! This mistake also screwed the owner of the one real 10, depriving them of their "top pop bonus points" (gasp)!

I try to defend PSA, but the fact is, it's impossible to do a decent job with this stuff when you don't know the sets. And it's frankly impossible for their graders and other employees to know all the sets. So these errors are bound to occur.

That's true, it's just hard for us to believe someone could do this. Different card stock, a puzzle on the back, not remotely similar to the real thing. Yet they have no idea.

A quality control issue in their process.

Might be the right time to send in some Cracked and Ratz repros!

Let's go back to the days when unscrupulous dealers sold junk, re-colored cards as mint!

Not a viable solution if that is what you enjoy.

I find it funny that Probstein can't see the obvious error and still tries to sell it as a gem mint Oscar Moron from 1974... Of course I did look for it on eBay and I think it was deleted.

I've never sent anything to PSA, or any of the other grading companies, so how does it work?  Did the person sending it in misidentify it and the graders not catch it, or are the graders solely guilty of the misidentification?  As many graded Wonder Breads that I've seen identified as 1st Series Tans, I can understand the sender labeling it incorrectly either unscrupulously or innocently, and I can understand the grader missing those but not this one.

I have to agree with Tom Keen here.  The ones with bent corners, writing, and no borders make my bicycle sound like a motorcycle, just like the gem mint 10s do, and those acrylic cases just break the spokes!  After all, it's just a pretty picture or drawing on a piece of cardboard that cost about a penny to produce.  Collectors (and dealers) set the value by buying and selling.  If no one is willing to pay the prices, they will go down.

In most cases the mistake is solely PSA's. However in this case, I doubt the submitter intended to submit a re-issue, so probably both parties were at fault.

How can this mistake be anything but solely PSAs fault?  The card clearly shows date of 1980, zero knowledge of wacky packages needed, slabbed as 1974  :-\

Do you have a family member who works for PSA?  You are very protective of them.

Here's one for you...

WOW! I was considering buying it, but the seller didn't supply a photo of the back to show what condition it was in! I'm embarrassed to say that this seller is from my neck of the woods!
