Kinda goes to show that a PSA grade is about.....worthless.

Well, no, it shows that PSA can make mistakes.

PSA 9 Boredom's and PSA 9 Campy sold for close to $3,700 each on Mile High Card Co. Sold for around $1,000 more than what I would have expected.

Based on the identical selling prices, seems like the same individual bought both of them.  $7,400 for two cards.   :o

This has to be the worst PSA error I have ever seen.

Is Mile High Card Co affiliated with PSA? I tried registering so that I could participate in those diecut auctions when they started. But, I didn't quite understand part of the registration process - so I emailed them for clarification and it said my email was blocked. Not that I would have won anyway, but it is what it is.

If they also blocked me for calling a different company incompetent retards years ago then that is hilarious.

I think he bought that from Greg and had it slabbed. Greg had one listed for around $1200 and the centering looked identical, as well as border creases in similar locations. I couldnít see it selling for more than $750 logically - but it already surpassed that so weíll see.

Should be pointed out that there is no affordable PSA grading option right now. The choices are pay $100 per card, or wait in line to try to get the privilege of paying $50 per card.

It will of course take a lot of time but other graders will become more mainstream and start to command good prices since PSA decided to open the door for this period of time.  OCR and scanned grades is the future and will trump all previous grades removing some of the subjectivity and nonsense going on now with grading. This will allow for faster and more accurate turnarounds.  The market demands this and will get it.  This will evolve like all things in life do especially with a process so flawed like the current PSA process.

The only wildcard with taking PSAís market share is the registry. Others have tried to compete with that but have not been successful.

That is not rocket science so no idea why others can't set up a registry.  What % of the market cares about registry?  I would only get cards graded to sell them and will never register them.  I have a super nice die cut set with all # variations(sans #21 Jolly) and Ratz and Cracked(graded PSA 6 and is by far the worst in the lot) that I want to get graded purely to sell.

The point is not whether someone could create a registry infrastructure. Itís that they have a hard time getting people to care about it.

I donít know what percentage of the market cares about the registry, but I personally believe that the grading of high condition commons is driven almost completely by the registry, and has made PSA a boat load of money over the years. That is what is currently suffering from high grading prices. It just isnít financially viable to pay $50/card to grade 1972 commons. The entire business model of 4 Sharp Corners has been ravaged by these circumstances.

And I realize lots of people only want to grade stuff to sell. But there has to be someone to buy it, and a lot of these buyers are either into the registry, or have typical collector OCD and want all their cards to be graded by the same service.

Cracked Animals 6? Consider that a blessing.

Itís a tough card? Not only extremely tough to find but centering issues donít make it conducive for high grade either. Along with the plethora of other diecut issues such as border creasing, popped perforations, soft corners, etc.

He is right, centering on that card is really hard to get.
