Hey all,

Great job, hendu. Hoping I can get around to sending some of mine in someday. I bet they look amazing in the SGC slabs.
Nice grades on those 62s. Definitely not the easiest set in the world to grade well!
Can't wait to see them.
If you dont mind me asking what kind of rate did you get? Im looking to send some stuff to them

What does grades popped mean?
Chads-cards - I sent them in through their 50s/60s 10-day turnaround for $5 each. They have monthly specials that I usually take advantage of. The specials usually change every month. You can see them at their web site.

Sparty78 - Right after they grade the cards and just before they ship them, you can see the grades through their web site. There is way to check your submission and know what they are before you actually receive them. The word "popped" is what collectors use when they find out their grades.

Hope that helps. Merry Christmas!

Nothing like a bunch of HOFer's slabbed for protection. Do you plan on keeping or selling in the near future? Great cards by the waySmile
Please post them when they arrive, would love to check um out.
No, most of them will be in the PC... The lesser grades will be sold once I upgrade. The highlights of the submission can be found here:
