Guess the grade...with my friend Hank.

Guess the grade...with my friend Hank.
I usually post in the basketball forum but I recently picked up a VERY NICE 54 topps Hank Aaron card that I thought I'd share.
I plan on submitting soon. What do you guys think it will grade?

I will tell you the card does have a slight issue. It has a "wave". If you were to see the card from the edge, it looks like a wave through card. It's not noticeable in scans. The card presents well with great centering and surface.

sweet card.. 5.5 for being optimistic.. if it is wavey, when its slabbed it shouldn't matter.

Looking to complete the 2013 Archives Mets fan favorite Au's as I only need Ron Darling! Also new project for 2014: Topps Gypsy Queen set base (including minis). Please note that if you have less than 15 trades, I ask that you send first.

Im going with a 5. Less if the wave is too bad.

I'm agreeing with the 4-5. I saw jagged edges, and on the back, I'm afraid the chipped green portion will really knock the grade down.

RE: Guess the grade...with my friend Hank.
that looks as good as mine (4.5 psa) Maybe a tad better according to the front.....safely a 5 in my opinion. But the back is the worrisome part i believe, like the person before stated, the green chipping and that corner could/would knock it a bit. I can say within the 4.5-6 range (6 being optimistic)

Based on PSA guidlines--it falls into the 5 range:
EX-MT 6: Excellent-Mint
A PSA EX-MT 6 card may have visible surface wear or a printing defect which does not detract from its overall appeal. A very light scratch may be detected only upon close inspection. Corners may have slightly graduated fraying. Picture focus may be slightly out-of-register. Card may show some loss of original gloss, may have minor wax stain on reverse, may exhibit very slight notching on edges and may also show some off-whiteness on borders. Centering must be 80/20 or better on the front and 90/10 or better on the reverse.
EX 5: Excellent
On PSA EX-5 cards, very minor rounding of the corners is becoming evident. Surface wear or printing defects are more visible. There may be minor chipping on edges. Loss of original gloss will be more apparent. Focus of picture may be slightly out-of-register. Several light scratches may be visible upon close inspection, but do not detract from the appeal of the card. Card may show some off-whiteness of borders. Centering must be 85/15 or better on the front and 90/10 or better on the back.
VG-EX 4: Very Good-Excellent
A PSA VG-EX 4 card's corners may be slightly rounded. Surface wear is noticeable but modest. The card may have light scuffing or light scratches. Some original gloss will be retained. Borders may be slightly off-white. A light crease may be visible. Centering must be 85/15 or better on the front and 90/10 or better on the back.

Thanks for the responses everyone! It may actually be a while until I send it in for grading. I need to get a bunch of other cards to send with it.
