Yeah, I got in on that dog pile

Over at Sports Card Info there was a post titled This Looks Fishy and followed it up with Dig a little deeper about a 1952 Bowman "PSA 9" Yogi Berra. The auction had a buy it now price of $10,000. Note the pic and how the grade and Serial Number are cut off the pic of the card. SCI emails the seller and gets a few different aswers and serial numbers. So I had to get in on this. So for your viewing pleasure I am posting our email exchange. I must admit that I have no idea how "Exhibits" were distributed.

That number comes up as an "exhibits" 1952 Yogi Berra PSA 9. You may want to contact PSA to have them correct that in their database. Exhibits is a series of post card type that were distributed at various events. The value difference is very substantial. No one will purchase your card if they check to verify the certificate number.
