PSA turnaround time faster than ever !
PSA received my 25 card submission on March 2nd, graded and shipped March 16th, this was the $6 Monthly 25 card special. WOW that's fast !

Still waiting for a reholder sent with the other cards. I thought the reholder would have been done first.

You just made me google to find out who the heck Jason Neighborgall is, lol :)

He was a major prospect at one point, and a Georgia Tech product. Threw the ball over 100 miles back when not every relief pitcher could.

Wow, his minor league stats were atrocious!

Listed on this page, though...

I think I got the card for $30 last year on COMC.

Sent mine in. Received on 2/6/17 and I still don't have them back over a month later. I think it was a 50-business-day turnaround, so I expect them sometime in April :D . Armour coins. Maybe they take longer than cards?

Do you guys think PSA looks at your past orders to see if you have sent in the same cards prior, hoping for a higher grade? The reason I am asking is because I have a few cards I've sent in several times with poor outcome.

For example, I purchased a robin young rookie PSA 8.5 certified high end thru PWCC I thought might get bumped to a 9. The card looks better than a PSA 9 I own. I sent it to PSA raw after cracking it out in hopes of getting an honest evaluation of a PSA 9 but it came back an 8 (.5 lower).

So I cracked it again and resent it raw, but this time asked for a minimum grade of 8.5...only this time it came back trimmed!!! I sent it in one more time with the same result (trimmed). I don't understand how it goes from 8.5 to 8 to trimmed to trimmed again a 2nd time. I understand grading is subjective but those results are all over the place. I don't see how it can be considered trimmed if the first two times it received a numeric grade (almost mint). I can't see anywhere it could be trimmed. The borders are extremely clean and all the corners are razor sharp.

So my question is does PSA look at my previous orders to see I keep resubmitting this yount over and over and can see it came back trimmed twice so are they are automatically being bias before grading it again?

I don't believe they have enough time to evaluate cards to look at your previous submissions. There are conspiracy theorists who will tell you that they monitor every card you send in.
I have to question your thought of cracking out a high end 8.5. Why not just send it in for a review in the holder first? Why pay all that money (presumably) to have a top copy, only to bust it out and hope for the best?

was it the 50 day service?

chalupacollects 03-19-2017 02:32 PM

Sent in a 26 card order under the February 50 day special with a 5 day $22 card order. Both receved on March 1st. The 50 day was delivered March 15 and the 5 day order on March 17... So one was real early the other a few days late... That I think is an ok tradeoff...

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 04:35 AM.
