this seller has been selling lots of nice looking raw t206's lately...I'd guess many if not all were removed from a scrapbook...looks like water damage to me or some kind of remnant from a glue?

For those that don't know Broadway Rick was busted for switching cards in PSA 10 holders to lesser grades.

I agree with Pete that the cards were probably in a scrap book, but the top part of the back along the frame looks like a layer of the cardboard was on it's end run. I would be curious to know if the card is thinner at the top from the bottom.

$150 for the card means the card would have to get at least EXMT grade or higher to come out. I think these T206s are not grade because they were all pulled from a scrap book and you would be lucky to get a VGEX grade at best on any of them and that is only a few.

These cards aren't something that I would bid on, but I assume that they were purchased for their aesthetic appearance more than their grading potential. Sounds like an unreliable seller, so that furthers the risk. Nice looking front on that common, but I didn't see the other ones.
