    March PSA (85 Day/30 Day) & BGS Submissions (20 Day)

    ***NEW INFO***


    ​Starting this month I will begin multiple services for both PSA and BGS. Please use the Formats for each service separated. When shipping please separate cards by submission. There will be a basic cleaning service offered at $1 charge per card. The submission fee is being eliminated but the non guarantee PSA sub is going to be increased .25 per card to take into account the shipping charges, supplies and the time its taking me to run these submissions.


    PSA 85 Day Non Guarantee Deadline (Pops Between Days 45-85 on average) : March 29th...........$9.25 Per Card.....($99 Max Declared Value)

    PSA 30 Day Non Guarantee Deadlines (Pops Between Days 20-40 on average ): March 29th..........$13 Per Card......($99 Max Declared Value)

    PSA/DNA 40 Day Non Guarantee Deadlines (Pops Around Day 40): March 29th..........$24 Per Card......($250 Max Declared Value)

    BGS 20 Day Deadlines (20 Day Guaranteed Service From When BGS Receives): March 29th...........$19 Per Card + $2 Autographs (Declared/Insured Value is $2.80 cost per $100)


    ***The Submission deadline is now the deadline for cards to be delivered to me. I strongly advise sending out cards a week or 2 before the deadline*****


    Exact Return Shipping Costs From Me To You (First Class, Priority Flat Rate Bubbler Mailer, Priority Flat Rate Medium/Large Box: I can ship cards out as they come in or you can opt too have me hold certain submissions if another sub is due back within a few days to save you on shipping costs. Return Shipping costs will be calculated once cards are ready to ship back.


    I will be offering a basic cleaning service at a cost of $1 per card as well as a full cleaning + assess for $3.

    Basic Cleaning $1 Fee: This will include a micro fiber wipe/cleaning as well as a new Penny Sleeve and Card Saver. If you want a card cleaned please put a (CLEAN) next to the card in your list and make sure to put a post it note on the top loader when shipping. I will not be giving my opinion of grade as I am not a professional grader.

    Clean & Assess $3 Fee:
    This will include a micro fiber wipe/cleaning, an assessment of the card with my opinion of any flaws I am able to notice, my opinion on whether or not I think its worth sending in, and the ability to pull the card back from the sub (I must receive a pull back request within 48 hours of my assessments being sent out or the card will be submitted), as well as a new Penny Sleeve and Card Saver. If you want a card cleaned please put a (CLEAN) next to the card in your list and make sure to put a post it note on the top loader when shipping. I will not be giving my opinion of grade as I am not a professional grader.

    **If taking advantage of the clean & assess or basic wipe services, please have your cards out ASAP so that I have time to get everything done before the submission.****

    ***DISCLAIMER***
    SCF does not guarantee a certain grade of your card(s). SCF is not responsible for any card(s) that get lost or damaged if you haven't chosen to get your cards insured to the submission moderator or insured from the submission moderator back to you.
    [/center]



    You must not have any negative or neutral feedback within the last 6 months, had any disputes opened up against you that were not resolved, or a No Buying/Selling/Trading tag. If you do PLEASE PM me to discuss the matter before submitting cards for grading.

    What is your cost?:


    -PSA 85 Day Non Guarantee (These are popping between days 45-85 on average): $9.25 Per Card ($99 Max Declared Value)

    -PSA 30 Day Non Guarantee (These are popping between days 20-40 on average): $13 Per Card ($499 Max Declared Value)

    -PSA/DNA 40 Day Non Guarantee Deadlines - Auto Grade Only - (These Pop. Around Day 40): $24 Per Card ($499 Max Declared Value)

    -BGS 20 Day Guarantee (These are popping in the 20 day guaranteed time frame): $19 Per Card + $2 For Autograph Cards ($2.80 Charge Per $100 Of Insurance/Declared Value)

    -EXACT Return shipping from me to you (shipping costs to be calculated and paid for once cards are back and ready to ship)
    -Add 3% If paying PayPal Goods


    How will this work?:
    Pretty simple, list your cards in this thread using the layout I have provided below including your username, yes/no $ of insurance, how you plan to pay, minimum grades, qualifiers, and declared value for each card (for PSA). Once you are ready, post your cards, and let me know that you are ready for my to post them in the trade manager. I will post them in the trade manger with the total amount due. Send your cards and send over payment to the address and PayPal provided.

    What types of cards can I submit?:
    PSA can grade any Regular or Small-Sized Cards (2-11/16" x 3-13/16" and under). Any year, any set. Autograph Cards must be post 1998 and manfufacturer authenticated.
    Declared value must be $99 or less for the 85 day and $99 or less for the 30 day. You are welcome to send in a card worth more but you are at risk if PSA damages the card they will only insure it up to the $99 for the 85 day or $99 for the 30 day. ALSO it is at the digression of PSA whether or not they up the service level for the particular card which may cause an increased price and service charge which you will be responsible for, so please be aware of this before sending in higher value cards.
    Available for non-autographed trading cards or post-1998 manufacturer authenticated auto cards only.

    BGS can slab and regular or small sized cards (2-11/16" x 3-13/16" and under). Any year, any set. Autograph Cards must be post 1998 and manfufacturer authenticated.

    DECLARED VALUE EXPLAINED: You are welcome to send in a card worth more but you are at risk if PSA damages the card they will only insure it up to the $99 for 85 day or $499 for 30 day ALSO it is at the digression of PSA whether or not they up the service level for the particular card which may cause an increased price, so please be aware of this before sending in higher value cards. Please be smart about what you send it so be aware you may have to pay for the higher service level, we haven't had any issues but I just want everyone to know..........FOR BGS the declared value is $2.80 per $100. This means if you opt for $0 your cards will not be insured coming from BGS to me.


    What if I submit a card and it doesn't get graded?:
    If PSA or BGS looks at your card and it is determined that your card is not genuine "fake" or as been altered in any way (trimmed, collared, etc.) they will not grade it. Since they have to look at the card to determine this they still charge the per card price regardless of no grading. This will not be refunded. If they state they didn't grade it for another reason then your amount will be refunded if they charged us to begin with.

    If you decide to put a minimum grade on a card and the card does NOT meet the minimum grade, PSA/BGS will NOT encase the card, but will still charge the normal grading fee.

    When do I ship my cards & when do I pay?:


    Cards and payments are due the day of the submission deadline. I’ll get cards and totals posted in trade manager once you are ready. You are responsible to pay the total fees within a week of the deadline.

    Im in New York so if shipping from International please PM and we can expedite the process to get your cards out to me earlier if possible.

    You can drop off the cards to be in Plainview, New York.

    Late Entries
    These submissions will be rolling so next month the plan will be the same just with updated dates.

    How can I pay for my submission?:
    Accepted forms of payment are PayPal Friends, Chase Pay/Zelle, Cash (Insure Your Package Accordingly), Venmo, and PayPal Goods (3% fee)


    Any payment method that requires a fee on my end you will be responsible to pay for.

    How are you expected to ship your cards?:
    Please send your cards, each in a Card Saver, with Cardboard at the front and back protecting it. I advise shipping in a small box with bubble wrap; but a padded mailer will work if you use adequate protection. You are responsible for your own cards getting to me so send in manner that makes you comfortable. i.e. padded mailer, box/bubble wrap, insurance, priority, first class, etc.

    *******If you do not ship in a card saver (or include card savers for your cards) it will cost $0.20 per card saver I need to provide (UNLESS YOU ARE USING THE CLEANING SERVICE).... I will have to transfer it into a Card before sending into PSA....I can't stress this part enough so please send in card savers or I will have to add this on*******

    How many cards can you submit?:
    Members may submit Unlimited amount.

    Can I submit the same card as another member?:

    Yes. Please specify which serial # card is yours. For BGS 20 day and PSA 30 day if you are the second person to post a BASE auto or BASE card the individual card may be pushed to the next weeks submission. I am teaming up with a local to get these two newer subs rolling so that is the only change in this regard.

    When Can We Expect The Cards Back?

    PSA 85 Day Current Estimated Turnaround: 45-85+ business days

    PSA 30 Day Current Estimated Turnaround: 20-40 business days

    PSA/DNA Auto Grade Only 40 Day Current Estimated Turnaround: Around 40 Business Days

    BGS 20 Day: 20 Business Days Guaranteed From When Beckett Receives Our Package

    ​Minimum Grade and Qualifiers

    If you do not place a MG or a Q I will assume you are okay with any grade and that you do not want qualifiers.

    If you choose to do so you can mark it Must Grade (minimum grade) "MG10" (must grade 10) If the card does not reach the minimum you selected, they will not encase it but you will STILL be charged the grading fee.

    Qualifiers - I will assume that you want No Qualifiers Checked so that you get a straight grade. If you want qualifiers on Please put a "Q" next to any of the cards you would like qualifiers on.

    Cards having significant flaws will receive "qualified" grades (see definitions below). If you select this box and your card is determined to have a qualifier, your card will be graded with a lower straight grade. For example, what would be graded an '8 OC' might be graded a straight '6.'
    * Please note: Some qualifiers may not be removed.
    PSA defines the following Qualifiers as:OC (Off Center):
    When the centering of the card falls below the minimum standard for that grade will be designated "OC." PSA determines centering by comparing the measurements of the borders from left to right and top to bottom. The centering is designated as the percent of difference at the most off-center part of the card. A 5% leeway is given to the front centering minimum standards for cards which grade NM 7 or better. For example, a card that meets all of the other requirements for PSA MINT 9 and measures 60/40 off-center on the front automatically meets the PSA front centering standards for MINT 9. If a card meets all of the other requirements for PSA MINT 9 and measures 65/35 off-center on the front, it may be deemed to meet the PSA front centering standards for MINT 9 if the eye appeal of the card is good.
    ST (Staining):
    Cards with staining below the minimum standards for the grade will be designated "ST."
    PD (Print Defect):
    Cards with significant printing defects will be designated "PD."
    OF (Out of Focus):
    Cards with focus below the minimum standards for the grade will be designated "OF."
    MK (Marks):
    Cards with writing, ink marks, pencil marks, etc. or evidence of the impression left from the act of writing will be designated "MK."
    MC (Miscut):
    Cards that exhibit an atypical cut for the issue or ones that contain partial portions of more than one card will be designated "MC."

    @Joshmets31 - i am debating on a regrade for my Gretzky RC - I think it's a 5 or 5.5, not a 4. What is the charge on a regrade?

    I need to ask my rep about regrading. I believe it has to go in its own submission. I’ll find out next week (most likely monday) and get back to you!

    From what I was told it would have to go in its own submission with its own return shipping. I couldn't get in touch with my normal rep so I'm going off what customer service told me. Im going to give him a ring when back in the office on Wednesday. But it seems like its going to need its own submission

    One more question - that Donovan Mitchell instant slam dunk card came from Panini in a magnet holder with a Panini sticker to seal it closed- should I still open it and have it graded? Or is there more value in having a sealed card without the grade?
