That's good news if we can get our grades on Friday.

Guys, why shoot for 9.5s?

Gotta shoot for 10s!

They have started grading the cards, but only 75ish or less as of right now are graded. Some good, some decent and some bad grades. I won't post a partial, as I would rather wait until the whole order is done.

I will say that there are 3 Pristines as of right now.....

Wesley Matthews prizm gold
Robert turbin prizm gold
Dwayne Allen platinum auto ref

Will update when the order is done.

Ok, that makes me feel better. I've just been racking my brain with things I could have done better to prepare the card for grading.

you got a 9....

actually so close too..

10 centering 10 edges 9.5 surface and 8.5 corners

might be in line for a bump, IMO.

that just posted and it got a 9.5


the cards are about 80% graded. in a couple hours and i should be able to post the full results.

as a forewarning - some very BAD GRADES are coming. prepare yourselves for the worst. and that's not a joke at all, i wish it was. and it's not an anomaly either, not like just one of the sub grades throwing the grade off... most of the sub grades of these cards are atrocious.

a couple examples:

Set Name : 2012 Elite Extra Edition USA Baseball 18U Game Jersey Signatures
Player Name : Cavan Biggio
Date Graded : Friday, March 15, 2013
Centering Grade : 8.5
Corner Grade : 8.5
Edges Grade : 8.5
Surfaces Grade : 9.0
Autograph Grade : 10.0
Final Grade : 8.5

Set Name : 2011 Topps Update Gold
Player Name : Mike Trout
Date Graded : Friday, March 15, 2013
Centering Grade : 8.5
Corner Grade : 8.0
Edges Grade : 8.5
Surfaces Grade : 8.5
Autograph Grade : 0.0
Final Grade : 8.5

Set Name : 2012 Bowman Sterling Prospect Autographs
Player Name : Mike Zunino
Date Graded : Friday, March 15, 2013
Centering Grade : 9.5
Corner Grade : 9.0
Edges Grade : 8.5
Surfaces Grade : 8.0
Autograph Grade : 10.0
Final Grade : 8.5

all you need is 1/2 a point on the corners and it's a 9.5.

Would I just need to resubmit it to have it looked at again? Sorry I'm asking so many questions.

yeah, pretty much just a resubmit. they'll review the card and crack the case and recase it if it bumps.

BREAK OUT THE KLEENEX tissues...
grades posted.
one person has not paid (unless i missed it???).
their grades will not be posted until payment is sent.

also, i will be reviewing the cards when they come in.
i have a hard time believing some of these grades.

personally, i did fine 50% gem, 50% mint, nothing lower than a 9.
some cards must have been diamond cut because centering grades on some 2012 bowmans are 7.5-8.5 and i honestly didn't think they were THAT BAD.
will update when shipping info is recieved.
