easier to track if you are including other people's cards, and 100 cards is a manageable box when it gets shipped to you. that 200 card order is going to break my back.

PSA's return shipping fees are already highway robbery... now you're paying that fee 5 times over, versus just 1 or 2!

I agree, probably more managable... but you're paying what, close to $100 extra in return shipping charge(s)?

I received my (66) card submission today that hit the PSA processing System on 6/6. They definitely have increased their processing times.

My 150 card order just popped after a month. Last bulk was the same. At least for me, I am no longering experiencing any kinds of delays.

With the improved turn around times, they are going to be able to recognize revenue a lot faster. Might be a great time to buy their stock. It was at 30 a few months ago, but it's at 15 now. Nice buy opportunity.

Some people have seen improved turnaround times. Not me. My last bulk popped roughly 3 weeks late. My current one has been there almost 2 months, and after logging is now on business day 31. Some people get lucky and see fast turnaround and like to talk about it. My 2 prior to these last 2 came through quick and that was 2 & 3 months ago... it hasn't gotten better. Where I was lucky than, these people posting about their quick turns now are lucky now. A simply call to CS will confirm, they are still experiencing delays and large backlogs.

As for their stock... it tanked because of drastically reduced demand for their coin services in foreign markets. They make way, way, way more revenue from the coin space, than they do cards. If there was any real improvement in the foreign coin grading market... their stock would already be back to where it was.

Yeah, I was looking over their statements yesterday. Coins still are by far their biggest reveune stream, but cards are growing. And their China business is growing with the expansion. I'm definitely a buyer at 15. I figure it's a way to get some of my grading fees back.

Still a lot of people with a terrible PSA taste in their mouth. I will still grade with them because of the value but PSA is one of the most abysmally run companies I've ever seen.

These turnaround times are baffling.There’s no consistency in how they log or turnaround orders.

Precisely why their stock is a terrible investment. Let me quote their "customer service" department :

"We are currently experiencing a high volume of emails and our response time is currently delayed.

For immediate assistance or urgent matters, please call PSA Customer Service directly at 1-800-325-1121 so we can assist accordingly. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

It's always been that way for me. It's usually around the turnaround times, but every once in a while, they will pop one in a ridiculous short time.

Mine arrived on the 19th. Hopefully, but not counting on, an early pop.

How is that possible?

My 112-card order was logged 5/14 and still hasn't popped.

What are the typical shipping charges for a 100 card order back from PSA? Putting together an order now (will be my 1st bulk submission).

They give you a total upon entering the cards into their online submission form at checkout. It depends on the total value of the cards submitted (return insurance), but my 240-260 card bulk orders are usually around $80-$90.
