What price is "down to earth" in your estimation? That is, how much would you like me to sell you my card for?
As a rule of thumb if I have a raw card priced above market I'm convinced it will grade well and so I don't want to sell it at raw price. There are, after all, only 50 of them, and I like the chances this has of becoming one of the 30 or so Gems.
There are currently two raws on eBay, one priced where I have mine and another priced less. Looks good in the pics but I can't be certain of the surface.
Maybe that's one you should take a chance on? If you score a 9.5/10 you saved $50- $100.
Might be worth a try. Best of luck! I'll be patient and get mine graded because I've already been over it with a loupe.
Looking for that elusive Trout RED auto. And a Trout GOLD auto. Also, beware emails from eBay user cien2727. Trust me.
