Beckett Book Value : $60
One of my bigger misses when compared to my pre-grading ritual that I do before I submit a card. This happened to be one of the 3 cards that I thought were on the fence between mint and gem mint status and when all was said and done it barely was a NM card.
I did not see any corner issues but I guess I closed my eyes when I looked at them as they only received an 8.5 and that coupled with an additional 8.5 on edges and 9 on surface made this card a "strong" 8.5 near mint card. I don't usually miss much but I did on this card.
The card has a book value of $60 and considering I acquired it for nowhere near that amount I guess I can't feel all that bad but I want/expect all cards I submit to at least earn an overall grade of 9. I am debating on cracking this card out of its case not to resell but it will probably annoy me knowing that that this 8.5 is sitting with all my other graded cards. Win some lose some and this one was definitely on the wrong side of that argument.
