We are talking about starting a Group Submission to Beckett Grading Service for members that would like to get there cards graded for $7-8 a card $8-9 for Auto's.

We must be able to have 100 cards to submit to get this deal from BGS and want to see how many members would commit to entering one, whether it's one card or 10.

This would be a cheap way to get your best PC cards Graded and Slabbed, and cheaper than submitting 1-10 yourself.

So if you are interested in joining and committing to the Submission Group cast your vote and your opinion's/Questions in this thread.

Thanks

Based on what I been seeing with a group of 20 members, about $12 per card which will include shipping back to you from the Host.

Lets say we have 20 members/100 cards

all 100 cards will be packed to be shipped to BGS.

BGS wants Insurance with Tracking To BGS and to mail it back out to the host, so once you do the mailing math and find out a full total, That total cost will be divided between all 20 members, and after that break down, the host will add shipping back to you $3-4 depending if you want Insurance and Sign #/Tracking, each members shipping back will depend.

Example at 20 members at 100 cards

I'd like to get my MJ auto graded. Maybe I'd throw in a couple of Kenyons as well but that's really all I know I'd want to submit.

I'd be in for 5 cards. It is better with a larger group so each party saves money in the end. I assume we would ship all the cards to one spot first before them being submitted to Beckett?

I'm hoping some time after the New Year, but get a Thread posted up for members to post there cards in that they want submitted so we can even see if we get 100 cards.

sasports "Shawn" is waiting on a call back from Beckett, and I got a email from BGS on joining the Group Submission group they have, 6 submissions for $99 a year, yes you have to pay, but the price and turn around are even better, but more or less we will have to do it as single person submitting 100 cards, we will wait and see what Beckett tells Shawn.


And again Thanks for your reply's and votes cool.gif

I currently have some cards out being graded with BGS. When they come back in I'll share the pics and results with all of you that are new to doing it. This was my first time and I think some of what I sent in should grade well! I sent 5 cards in total, 3 baseball and 2 football.

I haven't heard back from Beckett and honestly I have followed up with them either. Work has been hectic. My only employee lost her grandson this past month and then her granddaughters boyfriend a couple weeks later, and now her sister committed suicide yesterday. Working 7 days a week by myself has taken a toll on my love for the hobby sad.gif I will get back with beckett as soon as I can catch my breath!
