Default Show Grades vs Mail Grades

Posted By: Mike

Any opinions about getting some cards graded at a show vs sending them away. I was thinking about going to Chicago this week and have a few things graded in person , haven't done this before. Do the graders spend more time, less time, do they have all the equipment available at the show ??

Default Show Grades vs Mail Grades

I can't answer your question, but wanted to throw a little information your way from my own experiences. Hopefully the grading companies might change their policies this year. I'll explain, last year I went to the National & had a few cards that I wanted to have graded by PSA. I had only one day to attend the National because I was leaving out of state the next day. So I figured that, yes I was going to pay more to have them graded on-site, but I figured that the difference would make up for the shipping & handling. I was informed that I could not picked up my cards at the end of the day & would have to come back the following day. This was not possible as I mentioned earlier. So I just let it go & left them raw. So if you go to a show and want them graded on-site be sure that you have time to come back the next day or you probably could have them shipped at a later date after the show ends, but I'm not certain.

Hope this helps
Jantz

We will be grading on sight in Chicago. We can usually have your order processed and graded in 2-4 hours under normal circumstances. Just ask for Michael Sean or Brian and they will let you know if you can have your cards graded by the end of that day.
Thanks,

Mike, there is no difference in the grade you receive at a show.....the graders are just as tough on-site. The only good part is the instant feedback you get when you can receive the cards back in a few hours versus a few days. Good luck ! Paul

Not for vintage cards, but I had some cards "show" graded by Beckett a few years back and while the grades were accurate and fast they can't encase them at the show; and they issue a label and then invite you to send in the cards (more fees + shipping and handling) for encasement. I see these cards (modern only) on ebay from time to time and won't even give them much consideration as I know the hassle of getting them encased.
