I have been a staunch supporter of this particular grading company, but the grader missed this one. Unless, it's the scanner.
Now you know why certain buyers, me, ask for scans of the backs of cards. Not that we don't trust you, but when you spend big bucks, it's important.
Kudos to the seller for showing the scan of the front and back.

he is a full-time seller, and a very good one at that. btw, is that card not too out-of-focus to get that grade anyway?

I disagree EX-MT 6 in my books, maybe 6.5 (that registration looks brutal ~ what ever happened to eye appeal ??) ~ as the old saying goes buy the card not the holder. BTW. sure looks like a thumb print from ink transfer from handling a bunch 69-70's eh ~ hence maybe the soft grade ??

The seller is one of the best in the biz ~ for sure!!!

Don't know about everyone else but I've been getting some really tough graders lately so I'm not too happy when I see cards like this one.

The winning bid was $475. Two other bidders were willing to spend $400 on this card even with the scan showing the ink stain(s).
I guess the other 10 of us should sell ours for double. Clean backs should be worth more! I agree with Joe that the grade should have been a PSA 8 with Stain qualifier meaning it should a PSA 6. Always check the backs. How would you feel getting this card without knowing and opening the package and seeing the stain(s) on the back?
