Serious grading opinion needed-51'Parkie Gordie Howe

Took a 4 year hiatus from collecting, but back in the game again. I've been a vintage collector since the early 70's. I just picked up this Gordie Howe in a London Auction along with the 32' Caramel George Washington. You won't believe what i got the Howe for. If i do the quick turnaround with PSA, which one do you think it would go under...the $200, the $500? And what grade to keep it straight with no O/C. I've seen 7's and 8's that were close to this.

Thanks,
Marc

    I wouldn't send the George without matching up with a copy that u know is good. Trimmed?

    Just send in the howe and request to qualifiers. SA will upcharge you if it is not enought.

    nice cards !!!!!!!

  • I've submitted plenty of the Caramels in the past. It measured fine. I was more scared about the Howe's Measurement. I have a Washington in a 8 already in my own collection.

  • Sent the Howe off today to Memory Lane for their upcoming auction. Going to have them submit to PSA this weekend. Hoping for a straight 6.5, if i'm lucky a gracious 7:))

    The only opinion that counts is that of the grader at PSA...nobody here can give you a valid idea of what grades you may or may not get.

    I would think a 6 is as high as you will get, I would end up with a 4 if I sent that in. :-(

  • After talking with Allan and Ian there, they are thinking 6 or 6.5 if i get lucky, provided no mysterious stuff PSA always seems to find. Been there, done that.

  • Overall good news... Howe Came back a PSA 6. Centering definitely held it back.

    Not too bad getting a 6. Congrats.

    Centering LR or TB? To me I've seen 7's centered like your card. It's worse than 75/25? Really? I'd have said corners would've prevented the 7.

  • Also got hit hard on the grading fee as PWCC sold a 6 on eBay for $12k. Prior one was like $4900 ...6/2019.

    Sounds kind of like the guy who wins the lottery and complains about the taxes he has to pay. ;-)
