I sent in a couple cards for grading a couple weeks ago and picked them up yesterday. I don't understand some of the logic behind the grades. Let's take a look.
First up, my gold Luke Jackson auto:
Okay, not bad. I agree with all of those. I was even a little worried that the surface subgrade would come back at a 9 or worse, so all of these are a pleasant surprise. But let's flip it over and have a look at the auto grade:
What? A 9??? How is that a 9?!?!?!
If you thought that was bad, let's take a look at the card that really left me flabbergasted. Let me preface this by saying that I knew the card would be knocked for its centering:
10 on the auto, but an 8 on the card grade...let's take a closer look:
Two 9.5's, a 9 and a 7.5 on the centering...and that leads to a total grade of 8? I can understand an 8.5, but a freakin' 8??? This is ridiculous.
Not a lot of words here, but my blood pressure is through the roof. I have to stop before I explode!
