Default New to Vintage cards...submitting just one card to PSA..any tips?

Guys I'm new to Vintage card collecting. Have a really really nice looking 1954 Ted Williams I'd like to have graded. I know most people send in more than one card at a time. Will it hurt the grade to just send in this one card by itself. What should I do in your guys opinion. Help out a newbie.

Just send it in, don't try to game the system. IMO it won't make any difference to the grader(s).

If you're planning on sending more in ar some point, I would wait. The shipping charges are stout for a single card.

Or just get in on a group submission. There always seems to be one going on.

I think my last PSA "Bulk Submission" wait time was right at 5 months...



Have you looked at SGC?

You can't do a bulk submission for 1 card. He will have to send it at the regular level and it takes 2-3 weeks.

Ah good, more conspiracy theories. If that's the only card you have, send just that one in. Will cost about $20 for grading and $18 for return shipping. Declared value should be what you would pay to get a raw one in the same condition. Send it in inside a Cardsaver semirigid holder.
