What an awesome pull. Especially from a group break. I probably would have accepted that 50k offer.

What did they do with the stick of gum in the pack? Sorry, couldn't help wondering.

No gum; no wax stains. At least for $500 each, the entrants got clean cards. Rovell, who wrote the ESPN article, had a slot in the break.
I count 27 pixels on the left side, 19 pixels on the right side. That equates to 59/41, so yeah, I don't think it should have gotten a 9. Straight 8, yes.

Do you think PSA got caught up in the moment or do you think they thought this would be great advertising being at the National and all?

I'm guessing they got caught up in the moment.

Both.

Because certainly this card wouldn't be over scrutinized as nobody wanted to know what it was going to grade. A 9 can be 60/40 and the eye appeal looks pretty sharp to me

I stand corrected. Based on the comments above, I assumed 60/40 was too off center to warrant a grade of 9 but checking PSA's website, I see that is not the case.
