How to Be Sure A Card is a Proof Card?

I did a search on ebay and COMC to see what was listed for Kellogg's proof cards.  It seems that sellers assume that all blank-back cards must be proof cards.  I have no idea, but I am guessing that they are not.

Others mention that the card is a proof card but there is nothing obvious to prove that fact.  Does anyone have a better way to determine this?

I don't know much, but I've mentioned the Benanti Collection before because Beckett graded them and had them in some auctions about five years ago.  There are currently a handful of 1970 Kellogg's football cards from these auctions on ebay/COMC.  I'm still deciding if I want any of them.

BCG added the text "THE BENANTI COLLECTION" to the grading label.  Does anyone have Benanti Collection cards or uncut sheets from those auctions?

  1. Never heard of Benanti and his collection. But I have secretly wanted to add one of the Dmitri Young Collection cards to my collection.

  2. Have you read about the issues with PSA grading? Does that have any impact on Young's cards?

  3. I've heard about the trimming scandal and preferential grading issues regarding PSA, but nothing specifically related to Young's Collection. Although, it wouldn't surprise me if they hooked him up. Not sure how this info has impacted the Young Collection cards as I've only seen a few pop up over the years. They did sell for a premium though. If I were to guess, I'd say that they still do, since I haven't seen graded cards take too big of a hit from this controversy.
