I can't find the thread

February 27 2007, 2:03 AM 

I posted a thread about what this card would go for if auctioned months ago. I think I said 5M or 2M but can't remember. I think I am biased now that it sold in the 2M range, but I think I said 5M. Can't find my post in when I do a search I can't find it, help!! I hope I said 2M and not 5M. Either way not long before it will be a 5M card IMOHP.

I agree. It certainly doesn't show any trend in decreasing that's for sure.

Any chance the new owner will cross it over for an AUTH grade from SGC?

If that were to happen, would PSA be on the hook for the $2.35 million purchase price??

"This particular one was preserved in spectacular condition," said the PSA President.

An interesting choice of double meaning word in my opinion, as the word 'preserved' conjures in my mind things in altered states like pickles, jams and embalmed bodies. Dracula preserved (and entombed, interestingly enough) his victims.

Thanks Zach for the leg work. I was pretty sure I predicted 5M and didn't want to admit. This thread is going to go miles and miles. Here we go!! Leon, try and make sure the parachute works!!! It's gonna be a dozzie!!

Didn't the article state that SCP Auctions bought a piece of it? If true, it may be so that in the future Sotheby's would get a shot at reselling it.

Maybe it will be cut up into a hundred pieces and put into cards as an insert buy "Stupid Deck". They could also cut up the case and flip and put it into cards. Good idea!!

I'll ask the question again...

February 27 2007, 8:04 AM 

Since "alot" of folks believe this card to be trimmed...IF it were sent to SGC to crossover, would SGC slab it nrmt as well....or give it an authentic label? Would the prestige of the card be too overbearing to allow SGC to just stick it as authentic?

scary synopsis but probably not far from the truth with Upper Deck.

Have no fear, the buyer is not about to crack the plastic on this card
and re-submit to another Grading Co.

It would be quite interesting if this occured; but, it never will.

Unless, all the members of Net54 pool their $$$$ and buy this card.
Then, do you guys think all of us would arrive at a consensus to crack
it and submit it to SGC ?

If we pool our money, buy it, and cross it over to SGC, we better be prepared for the worst!

I truely don't believe that SGC would have the ***** to do anything other than pretty much a direct crossover from what PSA has the card at. There is no way that "the card" of the hobby...the most famed individual speciman of "the card" would ever go into a SGC Authentic slab....no way.


Obviously I know nobody is going to try crossing it to begin with.

I think SGC would return it to the owner as is, and tell him you probably don't want to go there. They have to treat it like any submission, and make an objective decision.

And I believe....SGC would welcome the attention it would receive having the Wagner in a SGC 88 holder...
