    PSA Grading

    The 2 Gleybers were the real disappointments. The 3 Dylan Carlsons were a gamble. I'll be cracking 5 out of the 12. I was offered $200US on the Aaron Judge raw a while ago. Not sure if the 9 adds, or subtracts value or remains the same. Find out soon enough. The Yelich and the Torres autos I'm...

    PSA Grading

    Turns out the only thing stopping the grades from showing was a functioning credit card! I'll try to copy the results. It's a mixed bag to say the least. I did get 1 PSA10 but I also got a PSA8 which I cracked out of a BGS 8.5. Also copped a PSA6 which is the only one of its kind in the pop...

    Investing in trading cards!

    I'm glad I took the time to watch the Embiid video. Very well put together. Subscribed.

    Investing in trading cards!

    Sounds like I should watch that video too. However, I'm risk averse to all bigs, so it would take some convincing to spend money on a guy like Embiid. The game is changing ( so the experts seem to say) and it's all about agility and durability. Not sure Embiid is either. Also, you have a tone...

    Investing in trading cards!

    Thanks Joe. I'm always interested to hear other people's perspective on the hobby. I have only just watched the 1st video. I'll probably skip the second video ( Embiid) because the answer to "should you invest in Joel Embiid" should be a resounding, NO - perhaps that was your conclusion. I'll...

    PSA Grading - going off track to the one earlier so started a new one

    Again, even as a grading novice, from all I've read and heard the BGS 9.5 is not only not equal with a PSA 10, it's not close to a PSA10 Excellent point with regards to corners ( surely way more important than centering). One could argue that a BGS 9.5 with 9 sub grade corners is the equivalent...

    PSA Grading - going off track to the one earlier so started a new one

    Grading novice here, but doesn't PSA goes much easier on centering? meaning it's far more likely to get a higher grade with PSA than BGS given that the majority of cards have average/poor centering.

    PSA Grading

    I hear you mate. And perhaps in future I will be much more selective and may just send a few off to a third party to be cleaned and bulk submitted. Having said that, one gets the feeling that they go marginally easier (and maybe they should) on cards like /5, especially when there are /10, /25...

    PSA Grading

    And regardless of the outcome of my first grading experience my love of the hobby is growing stronger by the week. Two and a bit years in now and it's getting more and more enjoyable as you start to see how diverse and dynamic it is. I haven't succeeded in making any converts out of friends and...

    PSA Grading

    I considered BGS, but it was around $50 per card as opposed to $20 for PSA. Also, and perhaps more importantly, the BGS 10 and the Black Label. Words can not adequately describe the ridiculousness of that. That caper is straight from Gimmickery 101 and they lose - or at least ought to lose- a...

    PSA Grading

    Pretty sure the Aaron Judge 2018 Topps Chrome 1983 Topps Orange Refractor Autograph got a PSA 9 because there weren't any in the pop reports previously and now there's 1. Not sure if I've potentially gained or lost anything commercially, in that instance. The Andres Gimenez 2018 Bowman...

    PSA Grading

    I hope I get 1 PSA10. That will have been worth it. If they are all 9 and less it will have been $500 down the plughole. It seems that a PSA 9 is roughly the equivalent of a raw version give or take( with most modern cards) . Two of the cards I'm keeping slabbed regardless of the grade, but...

    PSA Grading

    My first ever submission (12 cards) is now showing as being at the shipping stage of the time-line. Is there anyway to see what grades you received? or do you have to wait until you physically receive the cards back? Any advice much appreciated

    Well done. Great looking card and huge pull from a hanger pack.

    1 retail box of 19-20 Prizm

    I think it's fair to say his performances thus far have exceeded expectations. And as you said, he's been playing within himself. He's exciting to watch.

    1 retail box of 19-20 Prizm

    Retail. I haven't bought any hobby this year. Just retail and blasters (haven't gotten a thing from the blasters so far). I seriously considered buying Zion's silver off COMC when it dropped to $400, but he hadn't played a game and I thought it might go down further. He looks amazing so far and...

    1 retail box of 19-20 Prizm

    This was a very ordinary box until the last 5 packs. Up to that point all 5 silvers, 3 greens and 2 ruby waves were of vets. The only decent base rookie was a Rui. Then this happened.

    I'm going to have to check this out. As much as I love COMC, there are a number of sellers on there who seem to enjoy trolling me ( petty kids with whom I butted heads on the Blowout Forum I suspect). They seem to get their kicks by counter offering a 1% discount or, their favourite: lifting the...

    Philadelphia: from depressed to bullish.

    The commentator Jay Williams stated that small ball is the modern game and that the traditional centre is all but obsolete. I don't understand the nuances of the game well enough to offer an opinion but it seems that plenty agree with his assessment. I think Houston could play the Clippers in...

    I like that card the most of any of his rookie cards. An action image beats just a head shot

    Philadelphia: from depressed to bullish.

    Firstly, Simmo rocks. Never mind the 3 pointer - it irks me no longer. The rest of his game is outstanding. And he brings serious effort. Philadelphia just showed that they are legit contenders imo ( I was writing them off 2 weeks ago). Limiting Horford's minutes might be the key to it all...
