    Gorgeous centering, and light snow. I dont know how much they hold the registration against the grade, but a straight 8 would be 25K. Good luck.

    Will find out. The back is just incredible, centering is dead nutz on and the corners are Sharp, all better than my 8.5

    That is AMAZING! Thanks for sharing! It's so crazy to think that a Jim Brown rookie that nice was still in a pack more than 60 years after it was issued.

The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. Our childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When we were insolent we were placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds - pretty standard really."

    How did you know it might be the 3rd card in?

    It's better than my 8.5 other than a little snow. However some of the 9's have snow. What a card!!

  • azvikeazvike Posts: 171 ✭✭✭

    That HAS to be a 9...congrats UFFDAH!

  • brad31brad31 Posts: 1,606 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That is a beautiful card - congratulations.

    I’m more interested in the bear that lives in your family room. 😵

    Your 8.5 is one of the best Jimmy RCs I've ever seen!

    Let's just hope that you don't get the same grader(s) I did on the one I pulled a few months ago!

    You woke the bear from hibernating! Awesome pull! That card deserves a 9. Congrats!

  • Dpeck100Dpeck100 Posts: 10,914 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Man that was a great video. Absolutely love your excitement.

    Was that pack sold with the expectation that a Jim Brown was in it or did you just do your homework and figure it out?

    Good luck on your sub.

  • Nathaniel1960Nathaniel1960 Posts: 1,947 ✭✭✭

    You should sell that RIP vid as an NFT.

    Kiss me once, shame on you.

    Awesome. We both knew it was in there. The centering was the only question. Congrats on a great pull.

    Front centering is so good it should offset the very MINOR print issues it may have. Back is within PSA 9 parameters.

    There are no fish eyes scattered across mine.

  • GoldenageGoldenage Posts: 1,393 ✭✭✭✭

    The centering is out of this world. Care to show any of the other 8's and 9's in the pack, or was the Brown the best of the bunch ?

    Congratulations Chris!

    The video was worth the price of admission.

    Looking forward to seeing it in a PSA holder.

    Awesome pull and thanks for sharing. Let us know how it grades out in about three months under the walk through service. JK

    If it grades a 9, are you going to keep it or sell it? That would be a hard card to tuck away and not cash in on.

  • So the next question is what level you subbing it at? $1000 for $25k or you gonna pot it on a 9 for $3000 which would still be upcharged!

  • CakesCakes Posts: 2,661 ✭✭✭✭

    I really hope it grades a 9, if you sell the moon money/high auction prices will continue to drive up the value of nice PSA 7's and below. The last two PSA 7's on ebay went for 13 and 14 Thousand.
