Default PSA Card Saver Question

I have 3 or 4 National Treasures RPAs I was going to submit to PSA for grading but got a bit scared of damaging the card when I was putting it into a card saver. Do they make them for thicker cards or do I just ram it in there?

those things are a bit extreme, they are for things 4 x 6. when I bought a jumbo 1997 bowmans best, it came in one of those, its huge. might be overkill for something that can fit in a card saver 1.

OP, call PSA and see what they say. they may let you sub it in a 100 pt penny sleeve and top loader, properly taped up.

I've seen collectors submit with toploaders (painters tape at the top) with no problems.

Card Saver 4 is what PSA will recommend. It's what I always use for thick cards. Never had a problem.

Iíve also submitted cards in the one touch for the thick cards like that. Iím ok with spending the extra buck to make sure my card is protected. Put a rubber band around it so it doesnít accidently open in shipping.

They wonít reject cards in submitted in other protectors but itís their recommendation.

I also have sent all my thick cards in CS4's, they put very little pressure on the corners and edges plus hold your cards secure.

If you put a NT RPA in a Card Saver 1 the card is most likely now damaged.

PSA might not grade it as damaged, but it probably is. The card is thick, but the stock is way too fragile and soft. The bottom corners will be heavily pressed in. Lot's of PSA 10's and BGS 9.5's actually have damaged bottom corners since the card is in essence warped.

Sometimes this will be the difference between 9 and 10, but it is kind of an unspoken pretend it didn't happen thing.

If I know a NT RPA was sent in using a Card Saver 1 and is now graded I would most likely stay away from it.

Put it in a properly sized one-touch magnetic holder and then put that into a team bag and seal it.
