Default 1928 Harrington's Babe Ruth on Ebay

The right card edge does not look right with a slight curve, or is it me. It is currently on eBay as Item ID 401941672443

I don’t know anything about these cards. However, here is an old net54 thread where they are discussed and it seems they often come oddly cut

Oh, I think the right edge looks super wavy and not right. But I dont know anything about these cards. I did a quick internet search to see if they were handcut, and I could not find a definitive answer, but I believe they were not. So, without knowing much about these cards, other than they are likely not hand cut (and related to Tharps, Yuengling, etc), I think that edge looks like was not machine cut.

That said, based on the thread about the GAI Gehrig, PSA knows all and so if they slabbed it, it must be correct

I think Pete said it best, its PWCC, so beware.

But look, worst case, crack it out and send to PSA. If it comes back as Authentic, you can get a refund.

Just do your research before the buy

Default Ruth Card

Looking at all the provided pictures as well as VCP for comparison, I would say the concerns voiced here are warranted based on the corners. They do not look natural to the card and it doesn't seem to be a factory cut situation, I wouldn't be comfortable with this card if I saw it raw. PSA being the grader for one, but especially PWCC being the seller adds an extra layer, in a word....AVOID!!!!

I'm not sure that is good advice. You'd probably have a hard time getting a refund if you cracked the card out before submitting it.

Jesse, there is a massive thread that has dominated the board this weekend where the buyer did exactly that and eBay made the seller accept a return of the card and issue a full refund. While I was being sarcastic (bc I think it’s massively F-ed up), all I did was suggest what eBay literally just blessed/mandated.

Ahh your comment makes much more sense given that context. I did not catch that thread, and can't believe they allowed that return. Yet another reason to avoid selling on ebay.

Edit I read the first few comments in that thread. Unbelievable. I don't feel like reading 300+ comments right now but has anyone identified the buyer who returned the card?

No. For whatever reason, the OP, who feels he got screwed out of $5k, will not disclose the buyer’s name. The whole thing is very odd

I just read through half of the thread. It does seem odd. And while I agree completely the nondisclosure doesn't surprise me at all. It happens every time around here.

In my opinion if you won't name the person or company who screwed you over, which would presumably benefit everyone on the board, then don't start the thread.

Default waviness of right and left borders

Agree on that too. However, to me, the most telling trim aspect is the waviness of the right and left borders. A slope cut is one thing as seen on several shown, but the waviness up and down of the slopes is my main concern with it. That doesn't happen from a factory type cutter I don't think. Nothing surprises me anymore in TPG slabs.

My response from PWCC New message from: pwcc_auctions Top Rated Seller(207,006RedShooting Star)
Hi rgpete2001,

Sincere apologies for the delay in my response. Due to a technical error with eBay we received a higher volume of messages over the weekend and It looks like this item ended before we were able to respond to your query. We promise to do better for you in the future!

Best Regards,

Zach Landes

Your previous message

The right edge looks a bit wavy being a slight curve especially at the top and bottom corners

How convenient I got the response after the auction finished
