A pre-National Blog...

I am having problems finding cards that I want to buy.  Since I've lost interest in all things baseball cards after 1989, my list of "needs" is pretty small, and gets smaller each time I pick something up.

I'm also having a really hard time picking a new focus, which I'd like to have in place BEFORE heading to the national.

One thing that I am going to have to pony up and try involves my favorite vintage wax dealer...

They are having a National Only promotion with PSA where they will have PSA grade cards you pull from their packs opened at the BBCE booth at the show at the cost of $15 each, with a minimum of 5 cards to be submitted.
BBCE will also handle all aspects of the process and return the cards to you at the show!  Simply an amazing deal!

For those of you that think "well, $15 per slab is simply too expensive", I want you to keep a few this in mind....let's say you want to submit a card yourself, and are in no particular rush to get it back. That fine and dandy.
Whats that going to run you? At absolute bottom $5? then you have to pay to send em the card, pay them to send the card back to you, insurance on top of all that, and of course not only the wait time to get the card back, but what if it gets lost on the way there OR back from PSA?  Keep those things in mind before proclaiming that $15 is too expensive.

Needless to say, I am mega pumped about this promotion and cannot wait to rip and submit!
