Default If you've ever wondered what a T206 PSA 10 looks like...

My apologies if this has already been discussed -- I looked for posts and did not see any....(but that doesn't mean I haven't missed it...)

For those that like high grade, save up those pennies:

Nice card, but centering freaks may have an issue with it

When was the last time PSA gave out a 10, let alone a 9 or even an 8, on a t206? Seems to me, all very high grade t206s have older serial numbers. I would rather buy the more-recently-graded 7, which often looks awfully close (and sometimes better) than 8s and even 9s, and save the $25k+. Nothing against the McGraw- it’s an absolute beauty!!- but at some point you are paying a lot of extra $$ for the flip. Regardless, the t206s coming up in Heritage are unreal. Totally out of this world.

I can’t wait to see what the McGraw trades for. I put the over/under at $80k, and I am taking the over.

Ryan, I hear you, but I would take the under....Here's the problem now with T206s graded at 8 or higher, there just aren't that many buyers anymore....You can buy a solid 8 for a fraction of the price, and I mean a fraction...Plus, the cards are near identical....

I think that applies to most issues, not just T206s. And I agree.

The market goes up, the market goes down. It will be interesting to see how the Pre-WWII cards do in the future, from a value perspective. I remember when Caramels (E cards) were the hot thing. Now many, if not most, can be had for a small fraction of what they were 15 - 18 yrs ago.

I should add, it's also going to be interesting to see where these 9s and 10s end up. But it might be a different type collector of those than a mid grade card so that tells us something, just not sure what (investors?).

There are several 10s in the auction...and that many more 9s...

Given that many aren't sequentially numbered, I figured that they had all been reholdered with the fresh labels. I looked through several pre-VCP auction catalogs and couldn't find any, and none of the 9s or 10s are listed in VCP sales. Seems like these haven't changed hands publicly in awhile...or I've missed it.

So many high grade, unreal t206s in one auction. Seems to me, some of these may go for relative bargains, only bc how many people are out there who can buy so many of these in a single auction? I recall an auction a few years ago when a ton of rare back t206 cubs were listed. I picked up a great Evers Red Hindu, but I should have gone to the mat, because there were too many cubs at one time and they went cheap. I later picked up the Tinker Uzit 7 and the Tinker blank back, but I am still kicking myself that I didn’t buy the Evers BL 460 and the tinker bat off AB 460. Too many cards and not enough $$. I think that could happen here.

And he brought it to one of our Net54 dinners for show and tell. While it was razor sharp, it actually had poor centering and didn't deserve a 10.

Which brings us to the age old question: how does a grader distinguish a 9 from A 10? And if those 9's and 10's were broken out and resubmitted, is there any chance they would receive the same grades?

How would a card survive with "10" corners after being wrapped up in a pack of cigarettes?

It probably wasn't in the pack. There was a large find of un-circulated T206's in the late 80's by a company called Southern Cards. More than 1500 if I remember correctly. I bought a couple dozen at the time, I would bet that most of the 8's, 9's and 10's are from this group. There were Piedmont and Sovereign 150-350 and Old Mill SL. Cobb Bat On (the only Cobbs) and a few Johnson portraits among the HOF'ers
