Comments: I picked up
a couple tribute cards of Comiskey - a 1984 Renata Galasso Deckle

In November, the Comiskey was sent to PSA and graded NM-MT 8. In
March, 2010 I replaced the tribute card with a 1887 N28 SGC 50
card after winning an eBay auction from Joseph Esposito (b-e-collectibles).
I'd like to upgrade this one to an EX or EX-MT example.
UPDATE: In June, 2016 I found a potential Comiskey upgrade and eyeballed the auction daily until 6/8, the last night of the auction.

UPDATE: In September, 2016 another PSA 8 showed up on eBay and sold:
