    Ebay ad title: 1962 -63 El Producto Complete Hockey Set HOWE , RICHARD, BELIVEAU EX/ NEAR MINT

    Ebay ad description after you click on it:

    Condition is excellent to near mint with the only real issue is small pin hole on Beliveau.

    So, if I understand correctly, aside from it being in low grade condition, it's ex or near mint.

    My yacht is massive!! (fine print: except that it's a kayak).

        Yes I see that one all the time. Fuzzy picture, etc. It always makes me laugh, and I know now to avoid looking at it.

        I think this is why grading was invented (well, other than for graders to make money).

        It’s just too bad some people take grades as gospel...

          If your cards are not graded, they will never be 10's....

            If one grade difference can make thousands of dollars I would think that while it is not perfect, grading would be the right route to take.

                Yes all the recipes for a Failure: fuzy pictures with shadows and packaging, no guarantee, private bidders, no return…
                Great shape yes!

                Wow, he can't even guarantee that it's authentic. It's a coin flip! You can't really see the card and it might be a fake, but you should bid!

                What disappoints me also is that I reported this item and eBay does nothing. I guess the buyer can always return it and get his money back as putting "no return" in your listing means nothing?

              LOL!!! Sure, I guess the person who originally graded the card was visually impaired. So the grade increasing from a 3 to a 6 is really quite possible.

                Resubmitted a 5 to PSA and got an 8 once so you never know?

              Recently got a 6 on a card that should be a 9. Will resubmit. Guess they thought they never got enough $$ out of me.

                I once submitted cards for 7s and got a bunch of 8s and 9s. So I got your grades.

                  So it's true that the big dealers get all the high grades. Thanks for your business...come back again.

                ..Honestly I have seen 5's that look like 8's or 9's...Like or hate grading, it is what it is..Simply the judgement of a person who may be having a "good day", or a "bad day". People are human and are prone to making the occasional mistake, grading is just the opinion of the person holding your card at the time of your submission. The vast majority of cards are likely graded properly. I'm a firm believer in buying the card, not the holder.

Now for the $250.00 I spent I should have known. But I sent it in for grading the day it arrived. It came back as a counterfeit. I could not get a refund from eBay. I even sent all the grading information to eBay and they still would not side with me.I guess I should have just returned it as item not as described.

                    Not quite sure what you’re saying, but I totally endorse grading/regrading if you are selling something
