I recently unpacked an Articuno holo from a 1st ed fossil pack and im looking to grade it. Hoping it gets a 10 or a 9 at least. imgur.com/a/JTlViYM
there’s thousands listed on eBay which you can use for reference
Yeah but they’re all encased in slabs. I was hoping someone had the pics before they were graded and it ended up grading a PSA 10.
If this is OP’s image, the circled is highly likely to knock it down, but it’s also an articuno, so watch for those print lines. Watch centering too, but you can measure that to know…
Oh ok, thanks for the insight everyone
The circled part by itself shouldn’t dock - I have seen and had PSA 10s with one bit of edgewear.
However, I think that circled part in combination with other observable condition issues (I.e. the edgewear on the back left plus tiny whitening on top left back corner, etc.) would preclude the card from gemming
