Well that is a Good Idea.

Is that for New PSA Members only though?

The Problem is I am only going for one Day.

Does Beckett and SGC also make you wait until the Last Day like PSA Does?

I am Hoping they are Less Busy and I can get it Same Day.

It's for anyone who wants to pay for a membership. If you're looking for flip consistency, be aware SGC is radically changing theirs.

I saw that.

Because I am not Into SGC the Flips Don't Bother Me.

I think I only have One SGC and that is because it is a 1915 Cracker Jack that is a 2 (If not for the Stain on the Back) it is a Mint 9.

Card is Ridiculous.

No Caramel Stains
White Border instead of the usual Cream Border
Sharp Corners
Perfect Edges
Bright Vivid Color

I don't know why they gave it a 2.

I couldn't Pass it Up.

Looks like a PSA 9 (MK)
Worst Case Scenario PSA 8 (MK)

Does the $50 in person show grading fee apply to cards with high declared values (say $5k+) that would otherwise land in the more expensive service categories?

PSA will release their grading pricing at some point, and it will get posted here. Unlikely that higher service tiers will be cheaper to grade at the National.

People will be waiting in their lines like junkies at the methadone clinic.

Why?

If it were the regular price sure long lines.

But why pay $50 for something you can get done for a fraction of that and then wait in a long line?

Unless you have Mickey Mantle Rookies or something crazy expensive why pay so much?

What are regular submissions going for these days.

Last time I sent cards in it was $8 to $10 a card.

PSA bulk submissions have a max declared value of $100. At the $20 service level, the max declared value is $250. You're waiting at least 4 months to get your cards back at those service levels. That's where the $50 on site grading becomes enticing. Skipping the 4 to 5 month wait.

I've got a few cards in the $500 to $1500 range that I need graded, and am contemplating what to do. I'll only be at the National for 2 days (Thurs and Fri). If they need more than that, then I'll be out of luck, and will have wasted my time in line.

Was that Quick?

Do you know what those two companies were charging?
I didn't check the lines at Beckett. The wait at SGC was pretty short, 10 or 15 minutes. Their turnaround time was also a lot faster than PSA. I submitted one card and it was graded the same day. They actually called me and asked me to come back to their booth before they slabbed it because it had been altered. They asked me if I wanted it slabbed as authentic.
