1st BGS GRADING RESULTS :) - nickm1123 - 07-24-2012 06:10 PM

So I got curious today about my order. I asked my wife if her card had been charged (she did the grading for father's day) and she said no. I called to check on the order and they were finished and I got my results. I am beyond happy. There is only one card that I predicted lower than what I got but I was beyond excited with a couple cards that graded higher than I thought. Here are my predictions:

PREDICTIONS (GRADE):
1. 2011-12 SP Authentic Autographs Klay Thompson #23 (9)
2. 2007-08 Bowman Sterling Kevin Durant #KD (9)
3. 1996-97 Flair Hot Shots Gary Payton # 19 (8.5)
4. 2000-01 Upper Deck Pros/Cons Signature Jersey Autograph Gary Payton #GP (8.5-9)
5. 1998-99 UD Ionix Reciprocals Michael Jordan #5 102/750 (8-8.5)
6. 1995-95 Collector’s Choice Platinum Michael Jordan #353 (9)
7. 1997-98 Topps Rock Stars Refractors Michael Jordan #RS1 (8-8.5)
8. 2002-03 Topps Chrome The Move Refractors Michael Jordan #TM6 (8-8.5)
9. 1998-99 Upper Deck Ovation Jordan Rules Michael Jordan #J12 (8.5)
10. 2001-02 Ultimate Collection Michael Jordan #60 25/750 (9)
11. 2008-09 Skybox Metal Universe Michael Jordan #23 (8.5)



ACTUAL RESULTS:

2011-12 SP Authentic Autographs Klay Thompson #23 (9.5/9)
2. 2007-08 Bowman Sterling Kevin Durant #KD (9.5)
3. 1996-97 Flair Hot Shots Gary Payton # 19 (9)
4. 2000-01 Upper Deck Pros/Cons Signature Jersey Autograph Gary Payton #GP (8.5/10)
5.1998-99 UD Ionix Reciprocals Michael Jordan #5 102/750 (9)
6.1995-95 Collector’s Choice Platinum Michael Jordan #353 (9)
7.1997-98 Topps Rock Stars Refractors Michael Jordan #RS1 (9)
8.2002-03 Topps Chrome The Move Refractors Michael Jordan (9.5)
9.1998-99 Upper Deck Ovation Jordan Rules Michael Jordan (9)
10.2001-02 Ultimate Collection Michael Jordan #60 25/750 (8.5)
11. 2008-09 Skybox Metal Universe Michael Jordan #23 (8.5)



I am beyond happy with this! Only one card lower than I thought it would be (Ultimate Collection). I am happy though because all got 8.5+. I am already working on my next submission. The cards ship tomorrow so I will post actual scans when I get them. Hopefully Saturday or Monday.

Congrats, it is always a nice surprise to receive better grades than expected.

Thanks man! I am typically harder on my cards condition. I don't expect perfection but I am a perfectionist so I tend to shoot lower than what something actually is!

Yeah, I am very happy with the results. I was super surprised on the The Moves Refractor. That didnt seem to me to be a 9.5, but obviously I was wrong. I am already putting together my next order. The guy that gave me my scores (Sent me a personal email) also told me about the repeat customer discount. Sounds pretty good so I am going to look into that more and put together another order here soon...sort of addicted to buying graded cards now Smile

That platinum CC Jordan is a great grade too. Those surfaces/edges are always an issue. Same with the cool-yet-delicate die-cut rock star refractor insert. Nice work man!

Thanks man! I was impressed with the two refractors I submitted. The edges on the Rock Stars looked a little rough. Didnt expect a 9 on that or a 9.5 on The Moves card!

Thanks man!

I just checked the tracking on my cards and they are not expected to come until 7/31! Booo! Good thing I do not have to work that day and will literally stay at home all day to make sure I get them Smile
