A quick update on a card I posted in December of 2014, almost two years ago to the day it gets re-posted in a spiffy new holder. I only own one playing-era Babe Ruth card and wanted it in a holder because I'm clumsy and holders can often look nice. Off to PSA it went and it found its way back recently.
Unfortunately I fully believe along the way somebody creased it up through poor handling as when I handed it over to be slabbed it was VG-EX and it came back as a PSA 1.5. Although I'm not selling the card it still disappoints me as I've gotten pretty damn good at assessing card condition in the two years I've worked in a card shop which specializes in vintage.
I have no idea whether it was PSA or the people I submitted through who damaged the card -- although I'm decently confident in my guess as to who was the culprit -- but there's no way I would have missed multiple obvious creases when submitting it. It's still a card I'm thrilled to own and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to add an affordable playing-era Bambino to their collection.
