Well, they did add a minus.  I suppose there are only two grades, NM and NM-

That Wacky needs a Band-Aid for the deep cut and uncontrolled bleeding.

That is too funny.  I never tire of seeing the trash that is posted on Ebay.....  here is another one.  The cost of grading and slabbing this trash cost more than this eyesore is worth....  IMHO of course LOL

So is a "2" the lowest grade that PSA will assign to a card?  Will they grade and slab a "1" ?

I guess the submitter can't read "3rd Series" on the front.  I asked for a photo of the actual pack for sale, and I got the same one for the front along with one for the back too, which of course had a 1980 copyright.  I let them know, so we'll see if the description gets changed.

Here is another example of an Ebay'er who apparently has no clue on how to do a minute of research before posting these on eBay.

You can't tell some of the sellers either.  There was a lot that claimed to be tan original 1st series that I told them were all Wonder Bread issues.  They claimed they'd been in business for x amount of years with y thousands of transactions and no complaints.  They didn't believe me and wouldn't do the research even though I sent the links to the site that proved they weren't first tans (copyrights were wrong, cuts were wrong on the others).  I even asked to explain how the cut on Lavirus could be different than a 1st white back when they were all produced at the same time, just with different backs.

I've been missing out on the big bucks!  I should've paired all my stickers that make up Hostess Pairs together, forgetting that they all had tan backs, and asked $319 for them.

The same seller has a 4th series Hyde's Rox for $329.  I've really been missing out.

Shipping alone on this one is 7x more than price of a NM sheet.  Unbelievable!!!

The amount of uneducated sellers on ebay is astounding!!!

Although, I do believe this is just a wrong picture. But, I still cant believe these don't get checked better before being upped.

I asked for a photo of the front and back of the pack, and he sent me the one in the auction and the back of the pack with a 1980 copyright on it.  I then let him know that it was a reprint 3rd Series pack from 1980.  He replied "Thanks," but he never changed the description.  Oh well, you can't fix stupid.

And! Just how stupid is the person who bought it at auction??? For an item that says 6th series in the description and clearly 3rd series on the pack. I really don't know what to think about this one...

C$69.99 for three common checklists?  That probably made sense when the exchange rate was 1,000 Canadian dollars to 10 U.S. Dollars (Canadian Bacon).  Even the shipping is outrageous!

Apparently the grading is as flawed as the pricing.  But you are correct, the puzzle side of the 7th series checklist is perfectly centered.
