Can't believe someone would try to cover up something on that Bird auto. The Jordan is unfortunate because other than the mark, I bet it would have graded nicely. Congrats on the good ones!

But if you get two low sub grades on a card i.e. 4, 5, 9, 9 the overall grade never seems to be higher than the second lowest grade (usually it's the same or lower). Kind of like your Planet Metal Jordan Subs were 8.5, 8.5, 9 and 10 and the overall grade was an 8.5. Your Bird rookie sticker is an even better example. I know that Beckett doesn't take an average of the subgrades; there is likely a weighted formula that they use based on the grades and which sub (i.e. centering) to give the graders an overall grade. I would love to spend the time to figure it out using my graded cards but I just don't have the time. If anybody does though that would be pretty interesting.
