The world's most trusted source in collecting

It's not like Beckett is an overlooking body and everything has to be reported to Beckett. Because of this, when they list stuff in the database, they do it based on the information they can gather. For instance, they may have been informed the Larry Bird was in the set and had that parallel, but they may have figured it had numbering just like the others in the set (assuming the rest are numbered to 25).
What I find interesting, is that you would think that since they graded it, they should/would have changed it in the database.

What I thought was that I might have had a card that had an error on it since they put it as being numbered to /25 when it clearly states /18 on the back. Your answer about the checklist is quite sufficient.

I was also trying to state that there are many cards in the database where Beckett has a "reported" print run, but until they actually see it, they have no idea what it really is. There probably is no /25 version, only the /18 like you have. They should have changed it in their database when they received your card.
