The card has an autograph that I got in person, does this mean that BGS will automatically send it to JSA? Because as much as I would love to have it fully authenticated, neither the card nor the player are so big to make it "market worth it". I just would like to get this particular card protected for my own PC. Isn't there a cheaper option?

The reason is that BGS now makes me send most early 90's autos to JSA for authentication before BGS can grade them. Basically that means it costs a minimum of $30 for each auto card I want graded, before this price increase I could submit the cards under the 45 day option for $6 and pay $2 for the auto grade. From what I can see it is taking BGS/JSA months to get the cards back to collectors and they are now charging $30 per card minimum.
I have around 40 ungraded early 90's autos I want graded by these massive price increases will mean these cards don't get graded, which is a shame but is the result of the unrealistic price increases BGS has pushed through.
If they had a 45 day option where the card grading was still $6 or $7 plus say $5 for auto that would be reasonable, but $30 and I have to wait for months? Come on BGS, do the right thing by your customers and bring in some realistic pricing for these types of cards.
