What do you mean by that ?

It can be seen in the hobby in everything they do. Your post came off more as "I think I'm doing the wrong thing but here goes ..prove me wrong!" instead of learning, nervous etc etc. I have no where near the experience Jeff has in this but have seen the same thing and agree with what he says. I have had hundreds of cards graded (currently have 88 due to be returned next week) and have had only 1 mistake by Beckett which was rectified my next submission. No issues with shipping, no issues with time frames no issues with anything. But, as Jeff said, these issues can be hollered from the same 2 or 3 people over and over and over again. Your attention to detail and "throw away nicked corners" is a perfect indication that grading is not going to be for you and I would be willing to bet that there are going to be "issues" with your 1st order. I hope not, and hope to gain another grading member. Good luck in your submission - I truly hope it is spectacular

It does not mean they have ocd or are anal... Looking over your cards would be considered normal would it not?
Are you such an expert that you look at a card for 5 seconds without magnification and send it away? Does this make me or any other new guy wrong?
