Default When you regrade...

When you send a card into beckett to regrade do you pop the card out of the case or send it in still in the case with a note?

It worries me if I leave it in the case that the lower subgrades wouldnt let the grader to grade it higher overall, however I rather keep it in the case for safety.

If anyone has resubmitted a card, please let me know how you did it and successful or not so successful stories? THanks

im not sure how to break the case, but imo, i think it would be wiser to break it open, just like you said, if a grader sees that the card got an 8.5 on corners, i doubt the grader would do a 9 or 9.5.

No. Just leave it in the BGS holder and tell them you want a certain grade bumped if possible. Sounds odd, I know, but thats how they do it. Works every now and then.

Yeah the subgrades are 9.5, 9, 9, 8.5 which is pretty far from a 9.5, however I really think all of them are low. Ive studied this card and dont think any of the grades are justified

Haha... I definately know which card you're talking about, but no, I never have done it. Just saw a few friends doing it at the National with their 90's MJs. Worked one time and didn't work the second time.

Even though I would be happy with an upgrade, thats such crap that it wasnt graded higher the first time

It helps if you write the note on a 20 dollar bill
