Default Guess that grade? Jeters and ARod

Hi all,

anyone wanna take a stab at pre-grading these for me? Or give me some tips on what to look for on the foil cards with no borders?

I'm sending Bobby some cards for his bulk sub and am trying to determine value for the two 93SP's and if it's even worth it for the ARod and Pinnacle.

I never submitted before, and really never tried to pre-grade any of my cards. I read the PSA website for their criteria, but can't really see how that translates to the shiny cards other than "are the corners sharp?"

Zooming way in on my scans, it looks like the corners may be far from perfect, but I'm not really sure.

If anyone cares to offer an opinion, I'd appreciate it!

Tony

Here is a link to a google folder with the original scans. Hopefully the 93sp scans aren't too dark.

Have you looked under a loupe? Best way on these I think to assess how much white is on the corners, and edges.

No loupe, but I believe I see white on some (or most) of the corners when looking at the big scans (I think).

one of the things I'm finding vague is: how much white (using that parameter as an example) knocks the grade down how many notches?

It may help to shoot the photos against a dark background. Itís really hard to see a white corner against a white background with really small and really dark photos. Itís impossible to tell from whatís here. I would say that if you are detecting any defect at all that the SP Jeters are the only cards worth grading.

actually none of these corners look very good. so probably a waste of time to grade the pinnacle and ARod.

Those are really nice close ups of the corners. I'm thinking the Jeters are around 6s with that much white.

I think on the SP's 7 to 8, foil condition being better than photo's (no scuffs or indents) and backs are decently centered, same with Pinnacle and a 7 on ArodÖ Worth it even of they come back lower...

My thoughts as well. I am unsure the value of the A Rod card but I don't imagine it is worth anymore than the Pinnacle Jeter?

Grading fees/shipping, etc, certainly wouldn't be worth it, imo, after checking out the values on ebay for lower graded Jeters.

According to PSA auction prices realized, the Jeter jumps from less than $100 for a PSA9 to around $500 for psa 10.

The Arod is like 3grand for a psa10. $200-$300 for psa 9, less than $100 for psa8.

I definitely wont send those two in!

I pulled this Jeter from a pack yrs ago and thought about sending it in as my 1st submission but looking at values, if it didn't come back a 10, it certainly wouldn't be worth it due to the exchange rate, shipping, etc, being up here in Canada. (I need to rescan this card, especially the front)

The 1993 Pinnacle Jeter. Iím looking at the back. I see a chip of white on the border below the mlbpa logo. I see white on the back corner near his glove in the photo. Not sure if thatís dust. Itís a nice card. May be a 9 and may be within parameters of a 10. Itís a risk. Also the corners are somewhat rounded but I think thatís normal for this issue. I usually send my cheap Jeter rookies in a bulk submission so it doesnít cost so much per card. You may want to wait until someone on the board does a bulk submission so you can piggyback and not have to deal with all of the expenses for just one card.

Grade the 3 Jeters. Hold the Arod. The Jeter foil cards are worth throwing in a
holder in any grade and the Pinnacle is nicely centered. The Arod is not
nice enough condition to justify the grading expense.

I assume you are talking about my card, Adam? I should have taken better care, prior to scanning, to ensure my card/sleeve/holder and my scanner screen were clean but with that being said, I really don't think this card would be worth sending in based on what I mentioned before?

I'm glad to have it so that is enough for me at this point.

I appreciate your thoughts, however.

Thanks.

In case anyone is interested, my two SP's were deemed psa6 and psa7

didn't send my Pinnacle, but may throw it in on Bobby's next low dollar sub.

Good for you.
It will be interesting to see what your Pinnacle comes back as if you decide to send it in?
