Joe DiMaggio pickups
So I won a couple auctions from the recent Goldin Auction. I loved that they had some auctions where 100% of the auction price along with the buyer's premium was being sent to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. I ended up winning 2 Joe DiMaggio items, and just got them in the mail today.
The first item is a framed signature piece:

The 2nd was a 1939 Play Ball rookie card in PSA3 condition.
http://goldinauctions.com/LotDetail.aspx...ot-%233%29
However I got a call last week saying that they had accidentally listed the rookie card twice in the auction. So they offered to send me a replacement. This is what I got as a replacement. Let me know if you think I got a good deal for the replacement card. Even though is has a MK qualifier (which means there was some kind of marking on the card), the front and back look clean. The picture below has some discoloration in the background due to my shadow when I was taking the picture. The background on the card is perfect.

Wow! Nice stuff! Congrats on those...

I would have rather had the RC VG 3. Maybe you can bust the PSA 4 MK out of the slab and send it to Beckett. Where is the mark at? If it's not too bad then maybe leave it in. A qualifier basically bumps the grade down to a PSA 3 in actuality...so I guess either way it's not too bad of a replacement. Also depending on what you paid for it you might have to consider the best overall option for yourself if keeping or trying to resell for profit later on down the road.

Congrats either way.

I honestly don't see a mark anywhere. However from PSA's definition of the MK qualifier, the mark could be a mark that was erased but left surface abrasion. I got it for my PC, but if I ever decide to sell it I would highly consider sending it to Beckett to get regraded.
