Comments: I purchased a raw 1911 M116 card in January, 2003 and then upgraded to a GAI 4.5 with another eBay win in July, 2004. In December, 2005 I decided to diversify and pick up a new type card. I won an eBay auction for a SGC 10 1910 E103 from Bryan Long (trib01). I upgraded to a PSA 1.5 with an eBay win in February, 2010 from TNT Collectibles (steeler-man). The card had interesting notepaper marks on the reverse as if had been glued into a scrapbook at some point. The seller indicated the card came from a lot where other cards had similar markings. In June, 2010 a hobby friend Brian Terjung sold me this SGC 40 example. Thank you sir!

UPDATE: On October 20, 2015 I came across this auction on eBay...the first potential upgrade I've seen in five years but too much for my pocketbook considering the poor centering. But, check out the bright color:
