Default PWCC - 1933 Goudey #144 Ruth PSA 1

I just got blown away in an effort to get #144 on the latest PWCC auction. The PQ sign is really helping get crazy prices.

The PSA 1 just sold for $3,002!!!!

Wow!!! Thatís more that what the average PSA 2.5 sells for.

Huge price! I have consistently seen the PQ cards go for large premiums in any grade. I have considered consigning some of my higher quality stuff to PWCC however I have talked with several hobbyists who use PWCC regularly and they claim they have never gotten a PQ on a single card. In fairness to PWCC I know it is a small percentage that get the designation and maybe the fellas I have chatted with have mediocre material but it was certainly not encouraging.

There were suggestions made that I do not feel are fair to post here but wondering if anyone here who consigns to PWCC has ever gotten a PQ designation and how often? Also can you send them stuff in advance to get their opinion before you commit to the consignment?

They seem to run a very professional operation and not sure I see other options that are comparable with all things considered.

Thanks,
Chase

Not just that card - seems like everything is selling at or beyond the high range this evening.

Nice looking card regardless. The staple hole would have bothered me a bit, but the centering and corners are amazing. FWIW, it's the same price I paid for this one last year...

I like centering a lot but can't handle pin/staple holes. That PWCC 1 was a great looking card otherwise, but I would take yours over the other one shown, Jon. More was paid for this one and it will do until a suitable upgrade is found. The 144 is probably my fave card in the hobby.

It's always nice to see collectors spending big money for cards that have nice eye appeal for the grade.

Hard to improve upon an example as well centered as yours with full borders.

Leon-Why does your copy look so much more faded than Jonís? Is that just a scanner setting difference?
