    It is a shame that they aren't allowing people to send in those $200-499 cards. I've been a Platinum member for 3-4 years now and they don't even offer it to me. Luckily, my brother is a preferred dealer that they give that option to so I send all those through him.

    I have a LCS that does orders so maybe I'll try with them. Kind of want to get my first submission back though to see how good I am at judging what will be good cards to grade. Most of the ones I sent looked pretty flawless. I pulled some good cards that had super minor flaws because I wanted to send ones I thought had best shots at 10 first

    How often do packs drop? I picked up a couple guys I like from UVA (Harris and Brogdon) but otherwise just kind of browsing and getting a sense of what's going on.

    Common packs are random. You basically have to be on the site at the correct time

    Cool cats and special packs they send out emails and announce on the discord. You just get on their site and hit 'join drop' 5 minutes beforehand to get in the waiting room. From there, once it's time for the drop, you get a random place in line.

    1. Release has NEVER been on time. Last one was a 5 hour delay. They make announcement on their discord

    2. First cool cats drop was a disaster. Multiple people were able to get multiple packs. Last drop only 5 people got 2 packs and all 5 have been suspended

    Can you see the grades online before it's shipped back to you?

    Everything is going up substantially right now because word got out and people are pouring money into a limited supply of moments. I recommend that you listen to a good podcast (The First Mint is my favorite) and get a good idea before going crazy. The great thing about it is that there is a different strategy for several price ranges but the basics are important.

    My goal is to make enough through the cheaper packs to get one of the halo packs. Because getting your money out of dapper is a pain in the ass

    Yes. You'll get an email that your grades are available. Your order usually ships shortly thereafter.

    Think I'm going to do two bulk orders too before my collectors club expires because it may be my last chance to get cards "cheaply" graded since non members the lowest level is $50 they are taking now. Im sure I could easily find 20+ cards from 2018 to now and 20+ from 1972 to 2017 to grade and could easily make that money back the way graded cards are selling

    That Luka Cool Cat low ask is $4,799 right now. Keep on mind that this was a reward that took “only” $800 to $1300 to complete three weeks ago. That master Cool Cat challenge LaMelo will be a mint as well.

    Just saw the SLAM insert in the 2020-21 NBA Hoops and I think I may try and get the set. Goddamn that set is clean, and it is going to cost some money

    How hard is the process to get cards graded by PSA and how long does the process take?

    Just submitted my order yesterday and was pretty easy. Depends on what level you submit for turnaround time. They've stopped accepting cards in their lowest tier because of high volume. I just did a regular and express order. Looks like I should have my express back within a month and regular may take a few months

    My 2 day submission I sent in the mail Feb. 9th and it's been graded and sent back and supposed to arrive Monday.

    Easiest, and cheapest, way to do it is through a group submission. I have 2 different 45 day subs in right now with 1 of 1 Sports Cards. They are going to be a while.

    It's a mix of the status of Kobe(all RC's for rookies are valuable right now), but his passing definitely pushed them even more.

    If it's in good condition and you want to sell, may want to grade it and then list it when he is inducted into Hall of Fame in May

    I let my kid take my cards in today to a shop. He was supposed to let them go through to do a grading order because I haven’t touched them in 20 years. The guy tried to buy two folders of cards for 325. After my kid called me and I said no he told him that the 5 I should send in sell for 6000 if they are 9s or 10s. I have no clue what I’m doing and might be setting on a decent amount if I can ever figure it out.

    Go to ebay and look at sold prices of the same card. Gives you a base to deal off of.

    I’m lost here, so the blowout forums is that boozerbuck? I only read through the first page. Or are you claiming this guy may have just stolen two cards today from your son? Interested in the whole story on both. I’ve only been back into collecting and selling for a few years but it has become a complete shit show these past few months as the hobby has become all about money. I’m really debating on getting out as I’m getting priced out of being able to rip anything and everyone is all about graded cards and making money.

    Yeah I skimmed through that story and it’s a pure shit show and nothing will probably ever get resolved.

    Now onto boozerbuck. So this LCS guy might have taken 2 of your cards? I would get this cleared up ASAP before anything gets sent off or even leaves his shop. The more I follow groups and card threads the more I’ve learned to document everything and alway get the insurance cause someone is gonna try to screw you. Some guy took me for $120 bucks last summer. Right before this all really took off he was offering blasters for 60 shipped and I paid for 2 over Facebook pay and he deleted his account a week later after people started to ask where there cards were.

    Always pay with PayPal unless they are a breaker you trust.

    My kid needed money so I told him I had some cards he could sell. I said that they sold for more if he got them graded. I only knew that from reading in here. He called a place and he said they could grade them. He told me 10 for 75. I said that was fine and gave him the money and the cards. I told him to get them graded and sell them. He messaged me a couple hours later that they had to send them in and it was 5 for 75.

    The guy then offered to just buy all the cards for 325. I said no and to just bring the cards home. Kid calls on the way home and said he left 5 cards that he thought I needed to send in. He wouldn’t take any money and didn’t give him a receipt. He took my kids info and said he’d bill him and have the cards sent back. I said no go back and get the cards and now he can’t remember which cards they were and 2 Kobe rookies are gone. I’m basically shit out of luck and have no way of knowing for sure.

    yeah I’d be headed back in their first thing when they open. If you know two Kobe rookies are missing definitely find them and also make the card shop show you the 5 cards they are supposed to get graded. They should have a record of them cause when they submit them a ton of info gets entered on each card.

    I’m just calling it a loss at this point. I can’t get a straight answer out of my kid and have no clue which card it was. He told me that the guy was sending in 4 of the same card but when he sent them back there was only 2 of that rookie. Lesson learned I guess but it might’ve been an expensive one.
