Thanks - I paid in cash (dropped off the cards at a show) so I guess I'll put a weekly reminder in my work calendar to check my account page and hope something appears. Tom Petty was right when he said the waiting is the hardest part.

What a great thread! Thank you. Two questions:

Iím considering adding a minimum grade (maybe 8) to my first PSA submission, mostly to insure against my having missed something especially bad. Would setting this across the board potentially be detrimental to my better cards - as in, no need to give a 10 here as this guy is happy with an 8?

Along the same lines of probably overthinking this, does sending in cards that donít grade well affect the others in the submission? Like a pitcher who is wild not getting a strike on the corner.

Thanks.

You are overthinking it. According to the grading companies, the graders cannot see the min grade you would accept.

Is there a place on their websites that they state this? I haven't seen/heard this before. Thanks.

I have seen PSA respond that on the Collector's Unlimited message board, but I cannot find it on their website.

Curious on a vintage card I have, I do not see any creases on the card at all, however if I run my fingers across the surface (top to bottom) I can feel ripples or waves. At least that's the best I can explain it, again visually nothing appears but its not totally flat and smooth feeling if you were to do this across any other card.

Would something like this drastically affect the grade?

Yes, surface wrinkles normally max the grade out at PSA 5 EX. If there are a few of them, probably a 4.

Do you know how companies grade the centering of mini framed relics from sets such as allen & ginter and topps 206? I have a card that I want to grade where the mini card is not centered within the frame itself but the border of the actual card looks to be well centered. The rest of the card looks great to me. Just not sure if they take the centering of the mini within the frame into consideration or not.
