To grade or not to grade? - jkiddlridnour - 04-15-2012

Okay, so I got this card the other day and I'm not sure if I want to get it graded or not. I took the best pics I could. Thoughts?

Centering is going to kill you, but that is a sweet card...

Off centered comparing the top and bottom margins.

And chrome is so hard to grade as it is. Right out of the pack alot of cards has scratches and dings

It looks like it is OC 55/45 left/right too. Each OC will drop it half a grade I think. The best you will get on Centering is a 9, which means the highest grade you can get is a half grade higher = 9.5

Ya the centering looks off pretty noticeably from top to bottom.

I would try it but thats just me. Centering will hurt and it appears to have imperfections on the top left surface. Might get you a 9 but depending on the rest of the surface I dont think you will get a 9.5. Like I said I would still send it in.
