Record SGC Month

Big numbers for SGC here. Hopefully the turnaround times are improving as well!

I was preparing to send in a sub recently but then I realised they'll be at Front Row Card show in Pasadena in two weeks, so I'm going to drop them off in person for some take home service. Saves a little on shipping (& peace of mind!)

NFL Draft Day PC Special

One of the more random pieces I own, but as a Pats fan it's often a little difficult to get into the higher priced items - this popped up on eBay for $70AUD (so 50ish US) as a raw purchase, so I grabbed it back in 2022. Unique bit of history as he is the ONLY touchdown scorer in that tight Super Bowl between the Pats and Rams in 2019 - so I thought it would be cool to have such a nice rookie card of his for the PC of my teams!

Pretty happy with the grade it received after I sent it off, one I always like coming across when I go through my cards.

SGC Turnaround Times?

Post image 1

Just a quick question for the hive - have a couple cards I'd possibly like to get sent off & returned quick for possible flip, but I'm also an impatient excitable sort with these things. Anyone have any recent experience on SGC turnaround? I know it slowed right down for a while there & I'm unsure if I've heard of any improvement.

-

If it hasn't improved, I also wonder how people will reevaluate their grading choices. While SGC price point (without membership requirement) is still pretty unbeatable in the majors, it does soften the enthusiasm & open up the mind to considering other options if the turnaround time isn't at all reliable. It was one of their key drivers, & I've had large submissions with them come back insanely quick in the past - but if it's going to be 4+ weeks then I may simply just sell raw on some of my flips, and just purely PC grade for awhile.

Just wanted to say Happy Opening Day to the Mantel fam. Always a fun day in the life of the sports/baseball fan! A few random cards I currently own below, just the first I found when searching my overflowing folder of card images.

PC TUESDAY: Chris Duarte NT Collegiate RPA /10 🦆

Post image 1

Bought raw in Australia in 2022 & sent for grading in my first ever submission. Knew it wouldn't grade close to 10, had some edge issues. But it was for PC anyway, I was curious with the issues I had seen what it would grade at - 8.5 is about what I expected, & very happy with it. Jersey number as well!

As an Oregon alum, I'm always on the lookout for anything cool for the PC. Never focused too much on it, just opportunistic - this was one of them. Popped up on eBay in Australia & having enjoyed his run for a couple years having transferred in, averaging 17 points in his senior year as we won the conference, thought it would be a cool one to have. Was NBA All Rookie second team in his first year at the Pacers, unfortunately lost minutes there & ultimately ended up at the Kings where he is still now.

Dope patch, jersey numbered, clean auto. Very glad to have it. SCODUCKS 🦆
