Default The Swinging Sixties - Piggyback Special. Any Interest?

New year, and PSA had a new quarterly special. The one I am interested in is called "The Swinging Sixties". If covers 1960-1969 and has a $499 and under limit. They went up a little in price from the Goudey/T206 Special last quarter, from $8.50 to $9.00, but still better than the other guys. I got ENTIRELY too many raw cards and this would knock out all my cards from the 60s.

How about you guys?? Any of you have any cards from the 60's you want to get graded?? Let me know.

I will absolutely take part. My 1967 Laughlins aren't going to grade themselves!

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

I am not familiar with that issue. It is baseball only.

I'm in. I've got an ungraded '65 set. I'll be pulling 50+ from there.

I haven't looked at the set in a while. A few interesting cards



And a few familiar names

I have about half a dozen cards I would be interested in sending in. Have never graded or done a group grade before any quick guide I should read?

I’ve only done one group submission with Bobby, but have personally submitted cards numerous times over the years. I’ll try to provide you a few pointers.

The grading fee is $9.00 a card. Then add $1.00 per card for the round-trip (from Bobby’s house to California and back) shipping expense. This brings the expense to $10.00.

You are responsible for paying the shipping to Bobby’s house and for him to return them to you after he receives them back from grading. These shipping fees depend on how many cards you submit and how you want Bobby to ship the back to you. You obviously determine how you ship them to him and that expense.

All cards need to be in the larger plastic semi-rigid holders (typically size I v. II). No top loaders or screw downs. Sandwich all the holders between two slightly larger cardboard pieces. Tape to secure the sandwich.

Include a check in your package. He also typically accepts electronic payments. Also in the package, include a piece of paper that lists the cards you are submitting and their estimated value. This paper should also include your name, address, email, net54 username, and telephone number.

If this submission it is a go, Bobby will post his mailing address and the deadline.

Would it help if I cut mine to 60 with 40 in reserve in case you need it?

Yes...that way everyone that wants to can participate. I wouldn't even bother if PSA didn't cap me at 500.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! And PSA perfers the 1's instead of the 2's.

So this special is $10 a card with a $500 max value.

PS - the deadline is the end of the month. So now is NOT the time to be making purchases. These are for guys that already have their cards, and want to get them graded. And be prepared to the process to take 9 months. Think of it like a pregnancy.
