Is this a new SGC flip, old SGC flip, or not SGC at all?

I've never seen an SGC flip like this.

    it is a very old flip from the early years of SGC..they then switched to the labels that are similar to the current ones but they had no 1-10 conversion scale...the current flips (used the last 5 years or so) have the 1-100 and a 1-10 scale on the flip.

    thanks. I had just never seen one of those before. They must have tightened up on their grading standards since then too. That is an ugly 8.

    Yes grading was a little softer on the old flips, same goes for PSA old flips, got to be careful buying any for crossover.

    Definitely an old flip and very "unique".

    That is the "original" flip from the Joe Merkle days of SGC (they were preceded by the days when Merkle ran SBC). The second flip came to being around mid-1999 and then the final flip emerged (with the 1-10 scale added) in 2000. The only other changes since the new flip have been the reverse holograms and then the embossed etching.

    Does SGC's payback program include cards in these flips?

    I've seen those flips before. I just always thought they were from a different grading company and not sgc.

    65/35 LR and 67/33 T/B... it's technically within PSA 8 requirements although I doubt that matters this issue really stands out when OC.

    Seller has a number of PSA cards for auction - might be a reason he didn't crack and submit to PSA. Just a total and complete guess, but it wouldn't surprise me if there's a spooned out wrinkle, that came back, on that card.

    Would SGC reslab that card into a new holder?

    Really ugly 8 right there...no way that one gets cracked out. Bet it goes pretty cheap.
