Cards came in today! Looking at my schedule I should be able to sort through it next Wed. As far as getting them in the mail to you guys, like I mentioned before it may be after the new year, please be patient.

Dont take this post as a complaint, because I certainly don't mean it that way, but I have a question. I'm struggling to understand the benefit of using the group submission as opposed to just sending in on my own. with all the back and forth shipping, it seems like I paid about as much for my four cards to get graded using the group submission as I would have if I had simply submitted on my own. Not to mention, the timeline is a lot longer with the group. Is the benefit that you are sending in with a large group of cards and the hope is that your cards will gain a better grade in the group than if you were to send by yourself?

Me I sent in 13 cards and the total came to $114.04
Now had I submitted them myself to Beckett with the same 20 day service lets see the breakdown
13 cards at $11 a card = $143
5 of the 13 have an auto =$10 (beckett charges $2 an auto versus $1 here)
Return postage = $14 (becketts cheapest return postage option is ups ground at $14)
Return Insurance =$8 (based on the $1-1000 range)
Becketts total $175 (plus my shipping to them not included)
Scf's group total $114.04
Total savings submitting with the Scf group = $60.96
In my mind I have no problem waiting the extra time when I can save $60, thats another 6-7 cards I can submit with the next group just on the savings alone by not sending to Beckett myself.
Obviously the more you submit here the greater and more noticeable the savings are going to be versus sending them to Beckett, I think because you only sent 4 cards the difference isn't as noticeable.

^^^^Very well broken down^^^^^
the bottom line is if you are submitting cards you need to sell at a deadline then you should probably submit them yourself. And then if you don't get them back on time you can direct your madness at Beckett. But if you are submitting cards for PC, like myself, then who cares how long it takes to get them back? The savings on cost clearly outweighs the cost of wait time for me personally.
