Thanks!
I wasn't sure if they were around long enough to see if they started to cause the cards to acidify over time. ... But if you're definite, I'll take your word that they are archival.

Seems like that's the general consensus!
What grade do you think I could expect?
I'm kinda thinking that the 54 Bowman would come in around a 4-4.5 while the 58 Topps would be a little better at a 5-5.5. Think that's realistic?

Topps should send me Flowers and Candy this Valentine's Day, because they've been screwing me pretty regularly throughout the year. Smile

I double checked (you do not get a discount for my double check) just to make sure.

This is from the Grading FAQ's:



The BGS holder will feature the following elements:

Each card is protected by a crystal clear archival inner sleeve to prevent the holder itself from damaging the card. Each card will be virtually free of internal movement.
Each card edge can be fully viewed from the side, an industry first.
A label will run partially across the top of the holder. Each label will feature the set name, the grade and a specific id and a bar coded serial number.
Extreme precautions have been taken to prevent counterfeiting of the label and the holder.

RE: To grade, or not to grade?
I can't stand grading but with that said. I think its only place is for grading condition sensitive sets and vintage. They might not grade well, but its nice to know their true condition grade, that and like other's said BGS cases are pretty sturdy.

If you have less than 20 feedback you're sending first. I have little patience for the traders who continually ask me to check them just to cancel transactions or leave me hanging. After awhile I will start returning the favor.

Looking for Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, Andrew Luck RC Autos.

Thats the only reason im thinking of doing this offer for some of my older cards...just to get them slabbed. They won't grade high thats for sure

Hard to say, I am really bad at judging vintage pre-submission.

That' not to say I'm any good at modern cards either though Smile
