Red Stockings Cigar Radbourn

Post by sabrjay on Sat Apr 03, 2010 11:02 pm

I just read the description of the card and find it curious that the card is in an AUTH slab. The reason for it is that one shoe is colored completely black. The coloring was not done to deceive. The whole foot and shoe is colored black. I would think that something like that would get treated like writing on the card rather than as if the card were doctored.

Once you take the intent of the person who alters a card into condsideration, you have moved the focus outside of the range of objectivity which a grading company will consider consistently quantifiable.

How much and which type of trimming gets the least penalty, for example.

But in this case, the coloring is obviously not done to improve the card and actually harms it because it ruins the aesthetics. I'm surprised that Rob didn't notice it right away as it that solid black shoe jumped out at me right away.
