Default E95 Plank--PWCC auction

I waited for this auction to end, but I certainly hope that the winner of this lot does not mind an altered card for $700 (despite their claim that it is undergraded)--just look at his uniform--or gets his/her money back:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1909-E95-Phi...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

This is very disappointing, as I pointed this issue out to the seller no fewer than 4 times, and they said they would "look into it."

This is as much a TPG issue as it is an auction issue and is sad, IMO. The auction should have been cancelled or at least edited. I don't like to see anyone taken advantage of, ever.

Talk about putting the "A" in Plank!

I will confess to not seeing it at first, but once I did, well...I am speechless. This scares me honestly in that I am making the effort to learn prewar and begin collecting it. Education about what I am considering buying goes into that. Part of that education is not a blind reliance on TPGs. In the past, like a lot of collectors, there have been probably a few times that I didn't do my homework because a card was in a TPG slab, and I let them do my work for me. I could have been burned as a result, and I would have deserved it. Delving into prewar has forced me to really try and "know" the cards. This is a Grade A example of why.

I assume this is what it is suppose to look like, even though it's another PSA graded one?

Default E95 Plank-PWCC auction

Yes, Irv. Nice card!

While it is true that a buyer should know what a card looks like before he/she plunks down $700, not everyone is born knowing what this card should look like, except maybe Leon (hi, Leon).

But this does not, IMO, excuse someone like the seller who has literally handled thousands of pre-war cards. Just sayin'.

Outstanding Plank with wonderful eye appeal for the grade. Boasts EXMT centering with well formed corners for the grade. The color and focus are deserving of a much higher grade. Deserving of attention.

I see the staining and the letter A, but I don't understand exactly why you are saying it is altered. Do you mean it should have an (st or mk) qualifier? I am curious for my own edification. Here is a side-by-side of the card you are referring to (left) with Irv's card.

Brian, I got the picture from PSA's own site. I wish the card were mine!
