Default PSA - Cards moving in the case

I apologize if this has been asked and answered... I just got a big stack of cards back from PSA. The issue that I am seeing is that many of the cards are "off centered" in the case and will move around inside the case. I am worried about damage to the card.

My older PSA flips don't seem to have this problem. Is this something that other folks are seeing? or has this been the case for a while>


Here is an example:

Yeah, it's common for oddball sizes. Your card is surrounded by a mylar sleeves to reduce the likelihood of damage while in the slab. But since their slabs are not made for every specific size of card, they pick the next size above those and use the mylar sleeve. I would not worry about this card getting damaged unless you're planning to play football with it.

Yup, I find this absolutely absurd and have found what I believe to be damage to cards from being within a PSA (and for that matter, SGC) case. Again, absurd. Beckett definitely has the best holders from this standpoint.

I think it's REAL hard for the cards to get damaged, usually the geometry is such that even though there's lots of room a corner can't really hit the edge. And in any event it would take a lot of force.

But a 10 could go to a 9 with a small bump or was it a 9 to a 10...never mind!! I probably would not be overly concerned with an oddball issue going from a 4 to a 3.5 though .

Default Not so much an oddball size...

Interestingly, I just purchased another lot of 1947 Tip Top Bread cards. What is interesting, is PSA does have the right size holder for the size card... they just decided not to use them for my cards.

Below is an example. On the left is an example of the card I just got back. Card cutout in the case is too big for the card, card is in a bag, card slides around.

On the right is an example of the exact same card the I just purchased. Same vintage flip but card is in the right sized case and doesn't slide around.

Disappointing.
