    Some should not be 10s. That Sixto Lezcano is definitely not a 10, and the Cubs Team.
    And its not a consecutive run, as some numbers are not found in database. Not sure what that means.

    This is why 1/2 grades are meaningless. If a card can be off 1 or 2 grades, what does a 1/2 grade mean.

    I hope the grader that graded these, grades my subs.
    Maybe the slab labels need a "Graded by employee #" for accountability.

    That is nuts. One is a serious diamond cut. That said, these are beautiful cards.

    Serious Diamond cuts don’t fit in PSA holders. Do you mean the corners are cut at about 90 degrees but the card has serious tilt, meaning it’s the printed image that’s off kilter?

    Don’t disagree but if you sent in 20 beautiful 1977s would you get all 10s? Bet you would get all 9s with a few 8s. I know I would be lucky to get 1 10

    I dont know if it is still the case, but it used to be that if you had the minimum grade box checked, then anything below that grade would be returned to you ungraded and then the next card that met your minimum grade would get the next serial number.

    So if a submitter sets 10 as his minimum grade and submits 40 cards, but only 10 of them meet the minimum grade, then those 10 would have consecutive serial numbers giving the illusion that he got ten 10s in a row when in fact he did not.

    That might help explain why the numbers in that consecutive run are not found in the database.

    If 10 was selected as minimum grade for 1977 Topps, then that submitter has serious balls o'steel.

    Unless otherwise specified my posts represent only my opinion, not fact.

    You still have to pay whether it meets min or not but you may be right. I may send a test group and see

    I did not see how you can do a minimum grade anymore so back to the original question, how does a submitter get all 10s? If you can do minimum grade someone tell me how because I don’t see how

    Sounds like someone who has a lot of nice 1970's cards. Maybe a dealer in the midwest. Maybe they have been around for 50 years. LOL!!

    Work hard and you will succeed!!

    Yes to the tilt.

    Thanks for clarifying because I couldn’t get images to pull up on my phone.
