Graded Authentic by PSA. Offered is a stunning example of the rookie card of the immortal Joe Jackson. Inspecting the featured pasteboard it becomes abundantly clear that this card is among the finest examples in our hobby on appearance alone. The card has been graded at PSA, where it was deemed authentic and not offered a numerical grade as it was deemed altered. After countless times of looking at the offered card, I honestly am dumbfounded by the assessment of the card as I can't find anything that appears to me to have been done to the card to improve it overall condition. Exceptionally well centered with deep vibrant color as well as a nearly perfectly focused image of the tragic star. Each of the four corners show handling resulting in even wear that seemingly define this tremendous card. The reverse is well printed and void of any staining or disturbances. In conclusion, a truly wonderful card that appears to be more along the lines of a VG/EX to EX example and not the Authentic it has been graded but you know the old saying "live by sword die by the sword" So here it is, you make the call!
