    bgs grading question ?

    Set Name : 2015 Bowman Chrome Rookie Autographs Refractors Red Wave
    Player Name : Marcus Mariota
    Date Graded : Wednesday, July 15, 2015
    Centering Grade : 9.5
    Corner Grade : 6.5
    Edges Grade : 9.5
    Surfaces Grade : 9.5
    Autograph Grade : 10.0
    Final Grade : 7.0

    Above was a card I sent in; I swear the corners were 9.5-10...What can I do ? Is there anything BGS will do?i think they may have dropped the card out of holder!

    3 other cards graded 9.5 !

    Sorry Joe but they won't change a grade. A 6.5 for corners means one of the corners is essentially folded back. It may have happened in shipping or when they were handling the card but I doubt they would ever own up to that.

    When submitted to BGS how was the card packed and prepared? do you have a picture of the card in the slab?

    yeah my best guess is somehow in shipping or removal from the card saver one of the corners folded over.

    Ouch! That is tough! Sorry to hear about that Joe! 6.5 is rough! I'd definitely call in and see what you can find out about that if you were expecting this card to Gem. Good Luck!

    I once subbed a very nice red prospect auto that was Gem...other than the 6.5 centering! It was very badly miscut Top/Bottom but I wanted to see what I'd get. 7/10 LOL.

    I had this happen once on a Wade Boggs Topps Retired Signatures Auto card. The film on the surface of the card was folded over on the back. About 1/16-1/8" folded over. I didn't even notice when I sent it in, but it was very obvious when it came back. I have since noticed that film being loose or folded over on several cards over the years. Including a 1/1 Jason Marquise outta Finest.
