Well, as far as i know, Authenticating and Grading is a different process and involve a different procedures. For this 1948 George Mikan card, i am personally likes to be judge as an AUTHENTIC item, rather than get some number to represent the grading scale. Grading is a subjective process, but to decided an item is authentic or not, it was involve some scientific approach and doing a small research to the object, such like a paper print material, ink, discoloration, and tracing the source or origin if its necessary.

I have been read about this card years ago in some collector forum (sorry, i am forget the web address and have try to googling but cannot find the link)
That 1948 George Mikan (RC) card is more rare than the common version. It was not inserted in Bowman bubble gum pack, and not a test print version also. If you see in detail and compared to the common version 1948 George Mikan (RC) from the bubble gum pack, you will see some different in color composition. It was because the red color was absent during printing process. Then Bowman Gum manufacturer decided to not inserted this kind of card to their bubble gum pack, as they supposed it was an error or misprints. Another variation ifrom 1948 Bowman Basketball sets is widely known as Grey Variation, but not like this Mikan Card. You can still see a 1948 Bowman grey variation on ebay, but to find this misprinted copy, is more difficult due to the scarcity.

Happy collecting

Cards are cards. Should we call cards from the early 90's and before "PAPER" cards?
