  • pwcc corbeau

    its strange to see.... i owned that card for 2 years.... and the authentic grade is due to a reback job... not a color touch added.... its a huge difference !!. i contacted pwcc to give us the information and they never updated their description.....

      Its bad for the buyer who probably think he bought a little recolored copy. This card received extensive back restoration job. When i sold it last year i mentioned this issue to the buyer

        I'm assuming that you own one and that's the reason why you keep saying this on here. This topic was discussed before a few times and based on some of the solid points made by some members, especially Jim, the Corbeau is NOT the king of hockey cards. Here they are below:

            I agree with prewar_collector - there is a big difference between a card that is "modestly recolored" and one that has been rebacked.

            This is a small forum, and anyone complaining about PWCC on here is just going to get ignored. Now the Net54 forum is a different story. If you post anything on there, then he is going to have no choice but to take action. I suggest starting this topic over there.

              Puck_That, this forum costs a lot of time and money to run. Let's not slag it off as if its small or irrelevant. I forget what I was told about the exact number, but there are a tonne of individual (non-bot) users that read this site on a regular basis, even if they don't post. I can't compare it with other forums, but I think we should be careful not to be ungracious to those who run and pay for this site - one that many of us, yourself included, visit very often...at no charge.

              What kind of idiotic post is this?

          • #8
            Ummm, ok. I've seen how stuff has gone over there.
            For the record, Brent has responded every single time I've pointed something out and in some cases pulled the item if warranted. I believe he has also posted here.
            The card was sold as authentic, I've seen no other cards sold as authentic with a description of what the alteration is

              very good price for the authentic- good for filler on a v145-1 set---the winning bidder is one of only a small few that own one-good for him-!
              lets see what the market is on this one starting tonite--------

                And I still disagree...Corbeau sells for more than Morenz in the same condition. And more than Oliver. Etc. A 3.5 Oliver just sold for about the same as the Authentic Altered Corbeau: https://goldinauctions.com/mobile/lo...ver_short_prin

                For the record, I own a Morenz but not a Corbeau. I wish I had the latter and maybe someday, but it's too expensive for me. You can disagree about something without having an agenda.

                  I think it's pretty cool that this card in any condition sells for more than any other hockey card regardless of condition. It's the toughest card in the first ever NHL set and the first ever short print.

                  Think about the base cards that sell for the most regardless of condition in the other sports:
                  Basketball: Lebron Exquisite
                  Football: Manning Contenders or Brady SPA/Contenders
                  Baseball: Wagner t206

                  So only in hockey and baseball are there vintage cards that sell for more than even the most valuable modern cards in any condition (cheapest McDavid Cup is probably 10-15K).

                  There are tons of HOF rookies...but there is only one Corbeau. I'd love to own it someday and complete my set.

                  Unless you want to exclude short prints - despite how important they are to the hobby - either the Corbeau or the Lalonde #37 is the top hockey card.

                  Anyway, the comment was tongue in cheek and I won't argue this any further.

                    the lalonde and corbeau are important but i think the king is the sweet caporal postcard vezina...... just my 2 cents opinion. Vezina is more important player than corbeau or lalonde.... lalonde not far from vezina. And they are probably less sweet caporal vezina known than corbeau...They are approximatly 10 corbeau out there.... when i had mine i had fun to track every corbeau i know...

                    I know no king but the King in the North whose name is Stark. I don't care if he's a bastard. Ned Stark's blood runs through his veins. He's my king from this day until his last day...! :-)

                      I know of King Clancy from the V145-1 set and I thought it might go a little higher with PWCC putting that shiny HE designation. You don't see PSA 5's for sale every day

                        this thread is not for establish if the corbeau is important or not. I just want to say i thinks its bad to sell a card as recolored since the card is not recolored but reback....Also when i informed the consignor ..Anyway if the buyer is happy its good. On my side i owned this card until last years and for me this card don t worth 32 000 cdn $. The guy who bought the corbeau from me put it on ebay 6 month after the purchase. The seller have a big seller ebay profile with a lot of big sales and hundreds of good reference and the card sold for 14k if my memories is good..... now 6 month later 32K .......bad for my friend

                          I had a good deal when i traded the card last year. Its bad for my friend who had a big lost money when he put the card on ebay for auction. On my side i am happy with how much i had for it.
