Really Screwed up Pressing a Card - Dont do what I Did - jaysteig - 03-18-2021

Well guys,

   I had a Topps Kobe Bryant Rookie and I went and screwed it up by pressing it.  I was trying to get out a corner bend, and it did actually get it out.  However I didnt consider what it would do to the foil Topps logo and also the foil name on the card.  It was too much heat, even though i used parchment paper at 150 degrees.  So dont do what I did.  I wonder what it will get for surface grade now, centering wasnt bad to begin with.  the Topps logo has cracks in it now and the name name also has changed.  Only way I can amend for the mistake is to buy another one and take the hit.  I attached some pics.
