1945-46 Caramelo Deportivo #25 HOF Negro Leaguer, Ray Dandridge. One of the nicer examples known, it was
given a 1 by PSA, because they are a garbage company. It was cracked out
and sent to SGC, where I felt it would be graded accurately, however
SGC has changed something in the last 6 months to a year where half of
all Caramelo Deportivo cards now come back as "Minimum Size Not Met"
(as this one did) so I
cracked that out as well. It is now raw. I've sent hundreds and hundreds
of Caramelo Deportivo cards to SGC over the last 20 years and never
had one receive that label. I'm going to be talking to them at the
National in Chicago to get them to fix this because this card is
absolutely not undersized. There are cards of three HOF Negro Leaguers
in this auction, and it is the same story with all of them. Hopefully
SGC will resolve this issue at the National and these can get properly
graded (if the winning bidder wants them in a slab) because all three
are really nice examples. None of them are undersized in any way.
Included with this lot will be the original PSA flip, in case you want to get it back into a PSA holder.
