Sticking with coins
After 40 years of coin collecting, I know my way around grading Lincoln cents. I am admittedly a covid card collector, but my recent experience has been quite humbling.....
Like many during covid, I dug my old cards out of the back of the closet. Mostly BB & FB from the mid-70's and mostly $25-$200 cards. Given that, I decided to wait until the tier pricing came back to reality, so I finally submitted this year. First batch was the rookie & HOF cards, regardless of grade, figuring that was the easy value---got hammered with mostly 4s, 5s & 6s. Decided to take this seriously and spent weeks going through hundreds/thousands of cards picking out the best ones and whittling down to 20. I looked for centering, corners, clean edges, etc.
Just got back the 20 and was once again mostly disappointed with several head-scratchers. Please help me out with these.
