The 288 is a BGS 7 (Centering 6.5/Corners 8.5/Edges 9/Surface 9). Same issue. I think these were graded early on and graded very harshly. Centering is a serious issue on both of these cards and IMO, the difference between a 6.5 sub and the 8.5 sub on my #101 is not huge. Stars are the only cards where I'll take centering under a 9 because the grading for centering is all over the map.
Also threw in the Ewing XRC in 8.5 on the same buy and was under $600 delivered. I felt it was a great deal.
