Default New pickup... '58 Brooks.

So I have 47 cards that I want to get graded. In an effort to get to 50 and use the PSA $6 May special, I went to the terrible little card/coin shop near my office. I was basically looking for something I could pick up, grade, and get out of without losing money.

I found this...





I am curious what you guys think this would grade out at... then I will tell you what I paid.

Sorry if either of the pictures shows up upside down... photobucket is AWFUL.

Cheers,

PP

Thanks guys. 6 is my breakeven. Would love it to be higher, but happy just have it reduce the cost of grading the other 47 cards.

Now I just have to find another couple cards to grade...

That has a chance at a 7, of course centering doesn't help. Not sure about the gloss. I can only take a crappy cell phone pic ATM, but here's my 7 that looks very similar to yours:


FWIW, Brooks absolutely hates this card for obvious reasons.

Thanks for the input. That does look fairly similar.

I have been extremely lazy about getting this latest order off to PSA. Soon... so I can find out for sure.

It is funny about how bad this card is... that's why I like it. Terrible picture, but attractive card design with the bright colors.

It is especially funny in relation to the rookie which has a GREAT picture but the design of the '57s leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion.
