Default Seeking a host for PSA submission

It's been a while, anyone with the membership want to host a PSA group submission?

I know these always fill pretty quickly, so I just wanted a thread to start a conversation and attract a host

posting for discussion - if a host comes forward please resubmit.

That being said ifish73 is currently ongoing the approval process for PSA Submissions.

My basketball season is coming to an end, so might be willing to do one if everyone is ok with waiting a month or so.

After speaking with PSA this submission will have to wait until the February special comes out. There is no way I could get everyone's cards together and back out before the 31st. That also gives the moderators here time to approve me so I can offer it.

In the meantime anyone who is interested in joining in on a PSA submission post here and the number of cards you want to have graded.

It depends on the card and value of the card. PSA has different tiers.

For example they have for the specials this month which are only available to members:

1956 and newer valued under $100 (no tall-boys, supersized, thicker patch/memorabilia or autographed cards) autographed cards from manufacturer post 1998 are allowed

1955 and older valued under $100 (no supersized, thicker patch/memorabilia or autographed cards)

Autograph grading & Authentication (red-label) valued under $250 (dated pre-1998 and/or not from a manufacturer)

That just covers the cost of grading the card. You then need to factor in the cost of shipping to and from PSA which will vary based on the number of cards submitted and their overall value.

I have several cards I want to get graded, and I much prefer PSA over BGS, please let me know about a feb. submission.

The card I was looking to submit was a 1957 Topps Unitas Rc. Any ballpark idea of what that would cost?

The cheapest I saw on the site was $7 for the 45 day sub(non-special) for cards valued under $100.

From my earlier post added prices in red:

1956 and newer valued under $100 (no tall-boys, supersized, thicker patch/memorabilia or autographed cards) autographed cards from manufacturer post 1998 are allowed $6 grading cost

1955 and older valued under $100 (no supersized, thicker patch/memorabilia or autographed cards) $8 grading cost

Autograph grading & Authentication (red-label) valued under $250 (dated pre-1998 and/or not from a manufacturer) $15 grading cost

After that based on size of submission and value of submission I need to figure in the shipping costs to PSA (you should see how much it costs to ship say 50 cards with an insured value of $5000!) and their cost to ship back to me (they have a chart for that based on the number of cards and the total value). Once that is done based on the number of cards you have graded you pay shipping back to yourself.

But for instance pastmyshades Unitas RC is most likely valued over $100 so it needs the regular non-special submission which is $17.

Hopefully I will be approved by the first of the month and the specials will be a little better than this month. Also at the end of the month I will call them and see if they can do a little better if I have a lot of cards coming in.

How about authenticating an autograph on a card? For example a Wilt Chamberlain autographed card. Does that fall under the $15 auto authentication?

If it is not a pack pulled autograph card and dates pre 1998 it would qualify.

I would defiantly be on board for some 6 dollar grading. I know their are some additional fees but just let me know. I was wondering if anyone thinks it would be worthwhile to grade a 62 lou brock rookie ? I can post a scan but I have never had anything graded before and i wonder if I would be better off to keep it ungraded. There are several modern cards I would like graded regardless. Thanks ahead of time.

I would be in for 3-5 cards. Do you if value is determined by condition? A few of mine will be 1953 Glendale Tigers which are normally rough.

If you think the grade is really rough you can just have it encapsulated as authentic without a grade.

The way I took it from speaking with the rep is to put what you feel the value is based on condition prior to grading.

Example: I have a card that I think is worth $85 raw so it would be the $6 submission. After grading pretty sure it will be over $100


If I am approved in time I will get the details for the special on the first and start a new thread. Looks like we will have quite a group of cards to submit.
