I know it's about baseball, but I still think this is a great article that many forum members will enjoy:

Does anyone know if there are any NHL hockey players who are into card collecting (like Dimitri Young)?

Thanks

Not to highjack this thread but wtf! This this proves a level of corruption and/or inconsistency. If it was a 9 then there was obviously something not quite right or they reserve 10's for their best customers!

"So when Horton's PSA 9 card popped up on eBay for $400, buying it was a no-brainer. Young sent it to PSA three times, asking that they bump it up to a 10. The third time they did."

What do other's think

to get their way, either by throwing money at the issue (re-submissions) or by changing the rules....and then there is the rest of us.

I dont have a problem with PSA 10s going to their best customers. We need somebody to keep the hobby going and people interested. This is free advertising. Whats the difference between a PSA 9 or 10 anyway? Money? Prestige? Something to brag about? Im ecstatic just to have all PSA 9s in my second series! Ill never be able to afford PSA 10s unless they flood the market and the prices come down. There wont be any PSA 11s. Or maybe theyll come out with a new grading level: PSA 10 Ultra Perfect/Plus.
Just wondering if any of Youngs rookie cards were laser cut to perfection? Then again, older TOPPS baseball cards were made from thick cardboard.

I talked to a former grader from PSA at the Sun Times show in Chicago and he says that the grader never knows who's cards they are grading. These sellers that people say are getting special treatment are submitting thousands of cards a month so some will slip through the cracks since it's all done by people. If you don't believe me, just take a look at 4 Sharp Corners' inventory and you will see how many PSA 7's and 8's they have of commons and stars that are worthless. I don't buy this special treatment for big submitters. Like I said, they are submitting thousands of cards per month so some will get by. Third party grading is here to stay and it will NEVER be perfect no matter which company you use.

I agree with Damir -- nothing I've seen or experienced leads me to believe PSA does "favours" for big hitters. Having said that I do believe that big submitters may get favourable access to the head grader(s) for quick reviews. I've tried a few times for bumps and SGC cross-overs and had some success as well as many failures. I just couldn't be stuffed resubmitting over and over. Grading is subjective -- everyone can tell the difference between a 5 and an 8 but it's pretty tough to see much between a 9 and a 10.

I think Dmitri's collection is awesome. And the proceeds are going for a great cause.
