RE: Guess the grade...with my friend Hank.
Yea I actually just recently learned that the 57 sets were the beginning of what we now know as "normal card dimensions", I believe it's 2 1/2 by 3 1/2?
Kinda weird that they bounced around with sizes before finally landing on a winner lol.

If your talking card protection, you can buy vintage sized (pre 1957) soft plastic and hard plastic protection for them.

One year later...AND THE GRADES ARE IN!

I finally got around to sending in my Hank Aaron (with other cards) and just got the cards back from Beckett today.

If anyone is interested here is the card...

RE: Guess the grade...with my friend Hank. UPDATED 12-15-2015
Sweet I've got to get a PSA 7 of this card. I've wanted a copy since I first got in the hobby. I saved up twice for a SGC copy almost 2k cause back then a SGC, BVG or PSA 7 was 1800-2100 but now there 2 1/2 to 3 ×'s that.

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.


NAILED IT. Great that you got your '5'

My guess is 5.5. I think it looks pretty good.

I appreciate Chicago players that begin competing within the city's sports organizations and stay with these teams throughout their careers.
