1975 Topps Brett and Yount...are these authentic

Sent in the following to SGC. Collected numerous 1975 Bretts and Younts over the years and decided to send in . These seven (four minis and three regulars) were not graded with this explanation from Brent at SGC:
"You received a refund for 7 cards that received questionable authenticity designations. When our Grading Team is evaluating and grading a card, if they are unable to deem a card to be 100% authentic or 100% counterfeit, they will issue a refund and they will deem the card as "Questionable Authenticity."

....So does this mean NONE of these cards are authentic yet none are counterfeit??? All were bought over the course of multiple years from multiple places. I can't imagine all are no good. Looking for opinions from members here

    It’s hard to assess the authenticity of a card w/o having the card in hand. Try to send to PSA and let's have its opinion on authenticity.

    They look good to me and I’ve had thousands of 75’ cards in my possession. The email is odd, they are either fake or originals.

    If sold on eBay raw I believe they would pass AG no problem imo

    Edit: looking close at the Brett bottom right is fake. The royals logo and back look bad. Although it doesn’t appear to be “home made” maybe an old counterfeit with natural wear.

    In light of CGC just getting busted for grading a counterfeit, SGC probably felt that 1 Brett looked especially suspicious, they didn't want to take a chance with the others and just give your money back.

    But they also graded FOUR more regular size brett/younts in this same order, as well as minis of Aaron, Gary Carter, and Munson

    So they were confident of those 4 and the other 7 not so much.
