Grading of 19th Century Cards

Post by chefmikeg on Wed Feb 15, 2012 5:18 am

Below are a few examples of some 19th century cards that I have obtained. I am far from an expert in grading, but I was curious as to what all your thoughts are about the grading of 19th cards. In my opinion, to me it seems that the grading companies are more favorable to these older cards. Do you think that they got it right or are they more prone to giving the card a better grade just because its older.

That seems to be the weak spot for every company. Faded OJs get crazy high grades but if that same card was a t206 that was faded that badly the grade would get hammered.

The one thing with 19th Century collectors and graded cards is that the majority of the collectors do it right and buy the card not the holder. I have had SGC 40s go for more than an SGC 80 because the image was much nicer. I personally get them graded for the protection over the number grade.
