    Wow, interesting article. While the writer clearly had little to no knowledge of sports cards, they did their research and offered an interesting and seemingly (to me) unbiased overview of the situation. Thanks for the link.

    It’s interesting that PSA has no comment beyond the previous statement made.

    Very interesting article. Thanks for the link.

    So "mistakes in the grading process" led to borders being trimmed,stains disappearing and color added to spots that needed it? Yeah I call BS on that one,Mr Moser.

  • Gary Moser denying that he's trimmed or altered any cards is like Bugs Bunny denying he's ever eaten a carrot.

    “Yeah I did it, but they should have caught it! So they’re at fault!”

    So if I go 100 mph in a 35, no cop sees me or pulls me over, and then I hit and kill somebody, is the police Dept at fault? Yeah, I did it, I broke the law, but the fault falls with those who didn’t catch my illegal activity before I did harm.

    I think what he is doing is making his legal argument that there is nothing illegal about sending PSA altered cards.

    Thanks @lamontcarter for posting the article. Very interesting Moser denies any alterations and claims he looked for cards that were undergraded and just submitted them for re-evaluation. I can see that happening once, maybe twice -- but the amount of times his submissions got a bump in grade is really hard to believe...

    The grade bumps are the secondary outcome. There is verifiable proof showing the alterations he did to the cards to achieve the grade bumps.

    Interesting.

    Thanx Scott.

    I'm guessing someone on a message board contacted the writer - Paul Sullivan - since it has specific "thread" references?

    This kind of reminds me of a really involved "auto wreck."

    A lotta rubber necking.

    Traffic backed up in "all" directions.

    And finally - mercifully - the tow trucks arrive.

    It was a lawyer that contacted the NYT and provided the information.

    Yes but that lawyer is Peter Spaeth, of Net54 fame.

    that is an amazingly damaging article for all parties involved--IMO. When the NYT takes an interest all mentioned are on notice. Like the Feds getting involved in a criminal case....
