Default Piggybacking cards for a OCTOBER PSA Special POPPED (Finally) Grades posted!

Guys (Hey Leon)...I want to apologize in advance for posting this here....this board gets the most eyeballs. I posted this in another area, and no one has seen it yet....

The PSA specials for this month are actually back down to normal ($6.25 per card, PRE 1956 - Minimum order 50 cards).
I am halfway there just by myself. I'm not looking to make this as huge as the "BULK" order was, but I'm willing to help out, so if it wind's up big, so be it.

Anyway, let me know.....

I'm gonna post it here, so EVERYONE can see it....

Include the cards in a CS I - along with a slip of paper stating what they are, the value you place on them, along with return shipping and your net54 handle (so I can PM you).

The cost will be $6.25 + $1 per card for shipping to and from California.

Send to:
Robert Williams
PO Box 61362
Raleigh, NC 27661-1362

Include a personal check, or if you rather paypal F/F upon arrival that is cool too. That's pretty much it. Under the special, ONLY cards before 1956! They must be standard size (Topps) or smaller (T206s). No big cards, tall boys, Mutoscopes, etc. There is a $100 value limit per card.

Standard size (or smaller)...nothing bigger as you can't mix and match sizes.

Updated info....once again, this is ONLY for pre 1956 and cards valued UNDER $100. You can fudge it a little (ie, beater Ernie Banks rookie), but nothing TOO outrageous (ie, NO Hank Aaron rookies - not even beaters).....

Default PSA Submission

I have an original collection of vintage football and baseball cards that I purchased from my dad. I've been wanting to get some of them graded. Many of the '53 and '54 Topps and Bowman are in crisp NM-MT condition. Would love to send in 50-100 at this time and at that price point (have hundreds more I'd love to grade but not sure if I can justify and I guess I just don't understand how it works) if these qualify. I had a trained eye look at them once who told me I may have quite a few 7's and 8's. What if one gets graded an 8 or 9, which make them worth more than $100 do they end up charging you more?

They wont charge more for grading, but when you sub, you have to be ojective about the value. The value you assign is what you get reimbursed should the card become lost or damaged. If a card is TRULY worthy of an '9' grade and worth around $1,500, then I obivously wouldn't sub that one.

115 Cards logged with 12 currently being held because PSA doesn't recognize them/has no specs for them. Phone call in the AM.

PSA has the cards although not officially logged in yet.....some are needed specs, because they are that rare apparently.

I'm not sure the submitters want me to spill the beans on their rare cards. They all 12 are "non sports".

I was thinking the same thing. But after looking at it..."business days" take forever. Since it took a while to log the submission we're only at about 30 business days at this point depending on how many days they work around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Could possibly be another month if they take the full 50 days. Of course...on the other hand, it could pop Tuesday too....

The guys keeping track on Blowout have shown that all submission (bulk and even 5-days) are getting delayed at PSA. PSA is moving buildings right now and didn't have good monthly specials the last couple of months to try and slow down submissions, but they're still slammed. I agree you're probably looking at another calendar month.

I signed up for the PSA collectors club in October and submitted for a 10 day turnaround on 10/21. Submission was received on 11/8. I'm at over 30 business days with no word.

Wow, I guess I need to be more patient. I joined the PSA collectors club in November and took a bunch of my 1972 STP cards to the Philly show in early December. My account shows that the cards were received on December 12, and I anxiously checked the last several days to see if the grades popped yet.

I had never submitted anything to PSA before, so I really didn't know how good they were with turnaround times.

Most of the 1972 STP cards are not big value cards no matter what they grade, but I am anxious to see what the Lorenzen with car card and the Bobby Allison card grade.

BTW, did you submit the Richard Petty card for grading? Just curious to see what it grades.

My first submission as well. Total value was well less than 1K for all 15 submissions. Yes, I did submit the Petty card, I'll let you know when (and if &#128512 I get my grade. I've emailed PSA multiple times and received only robot replies. I hope they are as busy as was mentioned above. It makes want to work with another tpg exclusively.
I know PSA brings more $, but I got back into collecting just for me. Not trying to turn a profit on anything.

I completely understand your point. That is largely how I feel as well. I mostly collect obscure cards outside the big four sports because I love the impossible to find, even if it may only be worth $100-200.

I decided to get my STP cards graded because there is only one other complete set on the registry (the owner also posts on this board) due to the extreme rarities of a couple cards in that set.

When I dropped off my cards at the Philly show in early December, the line at PSA was huge. As far as the value of the total submissions, if the cards would somehow get lost in the mail, there is a good chance I would never find another example of a couple of the cards.

Don't send them to Beckett if you're worried about turnaround. Their bulk grading services are taking an average of 90-100 business days right now, so right about 5-6 months.

PSA has been going the full distance for the reasons everyone states. It also didn't help that this order was more problematic than most (rare, obscure cards that PSA didn't have certs already made up for).
