Ugh (retching sound).  They'd have to pay me at least $50 to take that.

Why, yes! Especially with the dog-eared corners and lovely crease along the bottom, makes it rather unique!

Description says:
Does Have Some Minor Wear But Overall Is In Good Condition

It makes me wonder what they would consider Major Wear

He must know enough to separate the 1st and 16th cards from the lot of 2nd-12th cards. So, pretty disappointing to see someone call this "Good condition." Maybe he's blind?

No, you would only ask $1K for a PSA 9 Band-Ache Die Cut...that would actually sell for more like $1200-$1500 depending on the day.

I am really thinking of sending my set to be graded....  I would expect most to be graded at least a 7 (due to centering) to a strong 9

In the wise words of Dave (Paul Maul): If it wonít get an 8 or higher, donít send it.

I know, and that Band-Ache is nice except for the centering. Unfortunately thatís a big part of the grade, but Iíd rather have a card thatís a PSA 6 due to the centering then one with a lot of corner wear. Given how long youíve been around the hobby I can imagine you scoring a beautiful Die Cut set for peanuts way back when.

Jeff, you probably donít remember this but I bought a 2nd tan set from you on eBay over a decade ago. Many of my keepers are still from that set including this one. The tan Run Tony still has under ten PSA 8s and only one 9.

I have had around 6 sets of dies over the years and I'm down to just my keeper set.  I personally don't like my own collection being slabbed, so will probably never know how they would be graded...

I don't understand - the only reason to do this would be to try to snooker an uninformed Star Trek fan, and they left out the word "Trek."

Yeah, I didn't post that in here as in the price is nuts, more so because I've never seen a set before. I have no clue what this set would sell for. I mean, Kill alone would sell for a pretty penny, correct?

Old School Series 5 PSA 10, only 1 in population - $800!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/113509452516?ul_noapp=true

Do you suppose there's only one because the sticker's not worth sending to PSA for grading?


He added a PSA 9, only 1 in population for $500!
https://www.ebay.com/itm/113509452101

The only two in the PSA registry for Old School 5 are these two.  It's pretty easy to get a population of 1 when you've got the only two submitted for a sticker that's not worth $2.
