Default Beckett Grading Help

Beckett just sent me a confirmation email that they have recieved my cards. Boy are they quick at charging you as well!!!

I sent in these Steven Stamkos cards for grading:

3 SP Authentic Sign of the Times
2 Ultimate Signatures
1 Young Guns RC


For 6 cards, 5 with autos and return shipping I totalled $100. They only charged me $89.

Does anyone know if there is a speciall BGS is running at the moment? I hope they didn't pocket one of the cards!!!

Any suggestions?

PS: Can't wait to see my grades!!!

I'm still not to the point where I'm brave enough to send cards in for grading. My eye is not good enough apparently. I've seen cards graded a 9 or 8.5 that look pretty darn gem mint to me so that's my justification. I think they had a special but I think it was on submissions of 10 cards or more...not sure what the discount was you received...

Nick, no specials right now for that low amount of submissions. So I would say that you just must have miss-added your order somewhere along the line. Good luck with the grades!

It could have been a 5 finger discount maybe......LOL

I bought more of the same 3 types of these Stamkos cards and saw differences in the ones that I did not submit. I had 10+ of these cards. These 6 made the BGS cut IMO. So I sold the other ones on ebay and made pretty good profit on them.

I am hoping for 9's or higher. If thats the case then I can make a killing on them for what I paid for the cards.

I would not worry about it. Beckett and PSA are soooo on the up and up.

i never had any problem with them...have 30 there now waiting to be graded. I did 45 days since I'm in Iraq for the next 5 months and in no hurry. I will say I have definitely doubled my money in everything that went to get graded and came back a 9.5 or better. Sold 2001 UD Tiger RC (Not SPA) BGS 10 for the entire price of on of my submissions of 10 cards.

i'm hoping for some 88/89 fleer basketball cards to come back BGS 9.5's!...definitely will make some money on the Jordans! Will have to wait until December to see! Good Luck on your grades!
