There are so many things it could be (without or with card in hand, it was still be hard to tell. And, we have all been there. I didn't mean your world would cave in - just that grading companies are, as a general rule, very tough on cards and use more sophisticated techniques and tools than the averag Joe does...

If you are curious, most of the time the guys at SGC will walk you through their explanation of the grade if you call. The flaws they identified and the rationale behind it.

Beautiful card; enjoy it...

Not surprised. I have been disappointed more times than happy. Maybe our expectations are too high? I guess that is what makes the true high grade cards so valuable. But it can still suck hoping for a 7-8.5 and getting a 5. Been there done that, more than once.

They are super tough on the 32 Sanella. With the thin paper they wrinkle super easy. I looked at the pop report and there are only 2 graded higher than an SGC 80 out of 191 submitted.

I got the card in today and unfortunately it seems like they did a poor job of cutting out the insert and part of the card was damaged inside the holder

I'm guessing this is what caused the drop in the grade.

Here is a picture of the damage that it got because of the holder: I believe this is what caused it to get graded a 60.

Pretty sure they are assigned a grade before they are put in the slab so that was not why it received the grade it did.
