    Probably something similar to mosaic I’d guess. Top of the helmet to the top of the card vs bottom gap. No idea for the sides though since there doesn’t look like there is anything to go off of. I’m still fairly new at this, so I’m sure there are other guys in here that can give more/better insight.

    For the left-right centering I think you would measure the gap between the writing on the right and the edge of the card and the writing and patch border. For top-bottom it would be the RC logo and the edge and the border around National Treasures and the edge.

    Eyeballing from the picture I don't see an issue with the centering.

    Seriously, wtf is that? They need to be blasted on social media for this. They just gave you about $20 worth of shit they had sitting around.

    Good idea if Rodgers is really on the way out. I can see him and laviska start to blow up in the next week

    That was pretty much my exact thought.

    And I loved the line in the letter saying the included cards are of equal or greater value than what I sent in.

    i think you have a right to be pissed. They should have sent you a case plus more for a damaged 1/1.

    Target implemented their 1 per person rule today so I finally got a Select box. $20, 1 box, 24 cards and all 8 of these, plus 10 more standard RCs. There were only 6 standard non RCs in the whole box, and even those were Kamara, Bosa, Saquon, Kyler etc. I see why people like Select so much

    Also select is dropping on eBay right now fellas. I’ve grabbed a few for around $90. I plan on ripping 3-5 and stashing another 3-5 to see if the prices increase in a few years

    Psa express is now completed through Feb 24...my submission date is Feb 25...

    Pumped to get those 4 cards back soon. Timing could be great if Rodgers gets traded because it may be a decent time to flip the graded Rodgers rookie. The Riley Greene blue wave auto is for my PC and I think I'll hold the LeBron rookies because I only see them going up in value. Hoping at least one 10 in that bunch. If the topps LeBron comes back a 10 it's going to be maybe worth as much as most my other cards combined.

    Maybe I'll get my 15 card vouchers by 2022

    Sounds like Target's nation-wide policy is about to be 1 of anything per person.

    They were confused at mine this morning so we got three per person. Grabbed two Select value packs and one Prizm NBA cello. Hit another Target for a Leaf Blaster that I'll hold.

    5 Blasters or 2 Megas on Select. Which would you advise? The megas still don't promise any relics or autos right, just more prizms ?

    As far as I can tell the only difference between the blasters and megas is the color prizms. I would say 5 blasters. Would probably up your chance on rookie QBs.
