    Trimmers just LOVE the 1951 Parkies. Majority of the high-graded examples are probably trimmed.

    1951 Parkhurst George Martin #39

    Value gain of $2013.01

    Current PSA Registry Sets:
    This cert is currently in Set Registry inventory and is featured in one or more sets, including Benny's '51 Parkies.


    This card was purchased by Ebay ID card-buyer from PWCC (Brent and Betsy Huigens) as a PSA 6 for $46.99 on July 27, 2016.

      The trimmers have been having a field day with 51 parkies for a long time. The size differences are all over the place with that issue, and the fraudsters know it. They have much more wiggle room when it comes to trimming.

        Exactly! And it's very sad because many collectors consider the 51' Parkies to be the greatest hockey set ever. The registry guys have made this problem even worse. Like seriously, do these morons really think they can find a NM-MT unaltered set? This is where the trimmers come in. The trimmers have allowed this to become a reality for these morons with lots of money. Oh well, enjoy your trimmed cards guys!

          Well Puck a little lack of respect in your last comment again… Calling people names…

          Beeing a collector since the late 80's, I have bought legit high grade Parkhurst 51 on several occasions and most of the time they were raw from estate. They are still out there!

          In 2013, I even found a full set of 1911 C57 raw cards that I got graded. 16 cards came back as 1/1 highest grade in PSA7 and up.

          Beeing respectful and patient is a good start when you want people to let you into their house and show you their treasures

            Here, take a look at this below:

            PSA Cert #27220825

            1965 Topps Carl Yastrzemski #385 - Population 1 of 3

            Value gain of $7,803.75

            Current PSA Registry Sets:
            This cert is currently in Set Registry inventory and is featured in one or more sets, including Joe's 65's.


            This card was purchased by Ebay ID card-buyer from Ebay seller probstein123 as a PSA 7.5 for $61.25 on March 12, 2017.
            VCP link: https://vintagecardprices.com/card/b...168441/PSA/7.5



            Same card was sold by PWCC (Brent and Betsy Huigens) as a PSA 10 for $7,865.00 on June 08, 2017.
            PWCC Marketplace link: https://www.pwccmarketplace.com/items/1499934

            Yellow circles are print, fiber, or chipping identifiers.
            Red box identifies trimmed bottom edge.









            So in NM+ grade the card went for $61.25 and in GEM MINT almost $8,000 USD! The PSA set registry has made people stupid!
