What about the 20 day option?
I really think we could get to 400 guys, but it's a ton of work for the host. Whatever it takes.

in reality, with a reliable host, 20 day can be done. it is 20 business days, so 1 full 4 week month is needed. plus time to pack (1 day), ship (2-3 days), get graded (30 days), be shipped and received (3 days) and pack (1 day) and ship again to the participants (1-2 days).

you're looking @ 40-45 calendar days to get them back, though the price is reduced significantly.

EDIT: you can, in theory, cut the overall time in half with 10 day BGS turnaround

PSS: i would have this posted for approval, but i am waiting on a definite response from Astronix in order to see which one of us will be hosting. i think he would save the group about $200-300 (i spent $225 on shipping the 200 card sub with $10,000 of insurance) because he would not need to ship registered and insured to BGS, he just drops them off @ their location in TX.

I would be interested in quite a few spots at a 10 day grading.

Whatever we do, we need to do fast. The holidays will definitely slow things up. What did your rep say?

Not sure if we are close to that. For 10 day service we would be at $11 per card + $1 per auto. I will try to get a bold of a manager at BGS and see if we might be Able to discuss a discount anyway. I will advise as soon as I can.
Yea not a very good deal. For the october order we just submitted and got back, it was $10 a card for the 10 day service and we had less than 100 cards total.
I'll be looking to maybe host a 20 day group submission toward the end of the month since i think $8 a card is pretty good. But will probably only take around 100 again since its a lot of trouble to deal with so many cards. (gotta check each card and make sure its correct and on the list and which card belongs to who, insurance for each card, calculating cost for each participant, collecting payments, responding to different concerns, msging back and forth) Can't imagine doing 400 cards at one time.

OK, sorry for the delay, last week was my busiest week of the year, but I spoke to the Regional Manager at Beckett and he has offered us a good deal.

Here is the breakdown depending on how many cards we sumbit. I told him we would like to try to do group submissions on a regular basis and as long as we get close to these numbers our pricing will remain the same. I am getting this in writing for future submissions. Right now my plan is to be in Dallas either the week ending November 30th or December 7th so we will need to get the submission active pretty quick.

Let me know if anyone has any other questions, we need to pin down if we want 10 or 20 day service and I am definitely in to host the submission.

Thanks,

200 cards 20 day service: $7 + $2 Auto
400 cards 20 day service: $7 + $1 Auto

200 cards 10 day service: $9 + $1 Auto
500 cards 10 day service: $8 + $1 Auto

With the holidays 10 day might be best, however the 20 day is a really good price. I am in for at least 5-8 cards, but to be clear this is for any sport or just one in particular?

I think you should submit a thread and add a poll asking between the 10 or 20 day option, I'm sure you'll get a lot of submissions. If this is your first submission to host it could take up to a week to be approved so submit ASAP so we can get started.

Thanks for the update. I think we should do the 10 day since it is only $1 more (well at least for mine because they are all autos). I doubt we would get to 400 cards.

But you are right we have to get this going to be able to get you the cards and $$$ in time.

I'm in as well...2-4 cards. I also agree with submitting this early, it could take a few days to get approved.

I also vote for 10 day...I think most will go for that!

Just submitted for approval. I have decided on making the trip the week of December 7th to give everyone an extra week to get cards mailed. So the thread is now a BGS December Group Submission.

Just to reiterate, I am in for 5-10 and I'd prefer the 10 day. For just an extra buck per, it's a no brainer.
