Default Greatest BGS results in my life! McCarron-heavy

The last order I sent in with a group sub got destroyed by surface subgrades on thick cards, I decided to just do the November special myself and give it a shot. Figured whatever cards don't grade out 9.5 I'd just sell on ebay.

Never expected such a high % of 9.5s. The Urias was cracked out of a PSA holder and the surface was cleaned off, could see fingerprints on the card and figured it was worth a shot.

BGS order (Shell #s)-

8949666 - 2014 Bowman Chrome Julio Urias black ref auto - 9.5
8949653 - 2014 McCarron NT RPA /99 - 9.5
8949654 - 2014 McCarron NT RPA /99 - 9.0
8949655 - 2014 McCarron NT RPA /99 - 9.5
8949656 - 2014 McCarron NT RPA /99 - 9.5
8949657 - 2014 McCarron NT RPA /99 - 9.5
8949658 - 2014 McCarron NT RPA /99 - 9.5
8949659 - 2014 McCarron NT RPA /99 - 9.0
8949660 - 2014 McCarron NT RPA silver /25 - 9.5
8949663 - 2014 McCarron Contenders cracked ice /22 - 9.5
8949661 - 2014 Topps Chrome McCarron Pulsar chrome auto /15 - 10

All of the McCarron RPAs received a 9.0 surface subgrade except the highest serial #d RPA and the /25 silver RPA I sent in (9.5 and 10 surface subgrades respectively). So the "stapler" effect on the back of those cards is being penalized but the lower #d RPAs seem to suffer from a deeper indentation than the higher #d RPAs, just a tip for anyone looking for an AJ RPA. Buy one serial #d in the 90s.

Will add scans to this when they arrive, but BGS has totally redeemed themselves after brutalizing all my NT cards last go-around. A 9.0 surface subgrade is fair for a slight indentation, the 8.5/8.0 surfaces I got on last sub seemed a little punitive.
