Just in case there were any lingering thoughts that maybe the "Skydash" collection wasn't 100% legit...

...and MUCH more to follow.

Great card! I gotta admit though that I didn't think you could get an 8.5 with the back centering like that. Regardless, it is a great item.

I see SGC has put a "provenance" label on it, just like Lionel Carter! This must be a great collection. I feel kind of privileged to have witnessed the development of the Skydash saga from his first post asking for the name of a good appraiser to this post. I can't wait to see what other cards will be coming next.

What an awesome card!

Doesn't surprise me. When I first saw the scan I thought it might get a 92.

But there's one thing funny here. The label reads "Skydash Collection" but that is not the owner's name, that's a nickname. Using a nickname for provenance is certainly unusual.

I wonder if we on the Board are the only ones who know the owner as Skydash? If so that's quite a tribute to those here who helped him out with the collection.

Very, very cool.

Maybe the reason for using "Skydash Collection" as the designation, has to do with him wanting to keep his name anonymous. I know I would want the same thing in this case, instead of using my real name in the collection.

I want to add:

Protection from people looking for money, people trying to look up personal information on you, etc.

Nickname all the way.

is all I can say...........this card will sell for a small to medium midwest house type price I'd say........just a beautiful piece. Was great seeing everything unfold for 'SKYDASH'. I talked with him on the phone for about 45 minutes one day and would say he's a genuinely great guy. Hope this all works out for him and his family.

Makes sense, just seems kind of funny. Can't think of any precedent.

And I think it will sell for somewhere in the vicinity of 100K, give or take.

One observation: how much better does that Thorpe look in an SGC holder with the black background than in a PSA slab?

It kind of makes a person want to go through your neighbors attics doesn't it?

Congrats to Skydash and best wishes on his sales.
