It does look good (the PSA one), but there appears to be some kind of print defect on his neck.

That PSA one sold for $633.50 on Feb. 26 (last month). For my money and all attributes considered on both that one and the SGC example, I'd rather have the PSA one and another $500+ in my pocket...

Yup. Not even close. But even if you marginally preferred the divot card for some reason, there is no merits-based explanation of the price.

Based on your numbers, it looks like the previous record for this card in this grade was $243.50. This auction had 8 different bidders well over that amount. It had 4 different bidders over $600 (the PSA card you reference). Sure, maybe 1 or 2 might have been false bids, but that many?

On the SGC one that PWCC sold, three people bid at least $750 on it, with two bids surpassing $1,100 - and all it takes is those two to believe there is merit in the card (even if the rest of us don't). I bet the person who bid $750 probably thought the bid might win by a decent margin too... and then promptly missed it by more than $400.

It's just my opinion but, to me, the SGC 7 is much nicer than the PSA 7. The PSA 7, really looks like a 6 or 6.5 to me. Look at that bottom left corner. That alone should have kept it out of a 7 holder. On the other hand, the SGC 7 has much sharper corners and really looks like a 7.5 or 8 to me. If I were buying one of those two cards and the price was the same, I would pick the SGC hands down.

Not all buyers check sold listings, check VCP, check available comps and wait for a bargain.

Some people just see a card they like and buy it.

I bet most of the people that buy off PWCC have never heard of VCP.

The PSA 7 is a nice card but comparing the SGC to the PSA 7, the SGC 7 is a bit better. Not $500+ better, imo. The final price really does not make sense but many instances have been pointed out here where cards have sold for numbers far in excess of what previous examples have gone for.

Come on, Peter. That little speck makes the PSA 7 "far nicer" than the SGC 7? If not, then what makes it far nicer? How do you know it's not a speck on the scanner? To me, it looks a different color than the rest of the border, so it could be a speck on the scanner in just the right spot to make it appear as if it's something on the border. Besides, look at the back - the speck is not there.
