Default My recent PSA Wrestling Sub Grades

Life has been pretty screwed up the last couple months here, but thought I'd briefly share my sub (the wrestling cards of that sub only) for those interested. A little disappointed with the lack of 10's on at least one of the Cromy's and/or any of the Undertaker Merlin's (and the 7's and below on some of the others), but wasn't completely unreasonable overall.


22320699 NEAR MINT-MINT 8 1991 MERLIN WWF 40 THE UNDERTAKER
22320700 NEAR MINT-MINT 8 1991 MERLIN WWF 40 THE UNDERTAKER ITALIAN
22320701 NEAR MINT-MINT 8 1991 MERLIN WWF 104 THE UNDERTAKER ITALIAN
22320702 MINT 9 1991 MERLIN WWF 104 THE UNDERTAKER GERMAN
22320703 MINT 9 1991 MERLIN WWF 118 THE UNDERTAKER
22320704 NEAR MINT-MINT 8 1991 MERLIN WWF 118 THE UNDERTAKER
22320705 MINT 9 1991 CROMY JUEGO DE NAIPES WCW LUCHADORES G3 DIAMOND STUDD
22320706 MINT 9 1991 CROMY JUEGO DE NAIPES WCW LUCHADORES G4 STUNNING STEVE

I would be very happy with the 8's and 9's on Merlins. The card stock is thin and they are imported. So overall id say you did alright.

It could have been worse. I thought I might sneak in at least one 10 though by submitting so many (plus if I was going to choose one card to not get the 8/9 split on and just have two 8's it obviously would not have been the #40, but what can you do?). The highlight I guess is on the 1991 Cromy Austin as the first 9 and highest graded. The WCW Magazine Foley I expected better than a 6. The Austin 5, eh depends on how you look at it, but it was not creased. The Warriors at 7's are the only 1989 copyright ones graded so far by PSA of that card, but was expecting 8's or better.

I will try to get some scans up when I get the cards back at the end of next week if anyone is interested. I only got ONE 10 for my entire sub of 19 cards when last time I got 5 out of a much smaller sample. I don't think my eyes went bad in a couple months so goes to show the human element involved in grading and that 10's are probably pretty arbitrary vs. 9's on most cards. Maybe centering was ever so slightly off so as to not qualify this time around for more 10's as the only 10 I got this time was on a 2000 Ultra Tom Brady rookie where borders wouldn't really be an issue. I'll have to take a look. Can't complain too much with the 1991 Cromy Steve Austin being a 9 though.

The Cromy 9 is definitely a good card! You did well hitting that.

I think you did alright, not a grand slam but you have some solid cards in there and some winners.
