Title: WP Forum PSA Thread
Post by: NationalSpittoon on August 08, 2017, 03:40:33 PM
Welcome to the Wacky Packages Forum PSA Archive!

This is for PSA collectors who don't want to bother with the Set Registry and want to show off their graded cards.

I will likely post something separate for when I get something good, then add it to a post reflecting what series and which ones I own.

When you get cards graded, or you score something big, post them here in the WP Forum PSA Archive!

Not to be a downer, but it's possible this Archive won't be around for a real long time. Using postimg from this board, in my experience, means your images are not kept forever. I've had some uploaded images expire and disappear from my posts. Just a warning...I could be wrong.

postimage.org claims they never remove or deactivate images from message boards using their service, but clearly we have lost many here.

Does creating your own account get around that issue?

6th glossies are the rarest. 4ths are uncommon enough that it's petty hard to find them in high grade.

I don't think Bum and Choke exist in glossy form, suggesting glossies were introduced after they were pulled.

That Shot Wheels is indeed a beauty. I wonder if that is the case for tan back Gadzooka's? I mean they mislabeled most likely all of them if you think about it. There is no difference. Same with Tied, except I believe there are less of those graded.
Title: Re: WP Forum PSA Archive
Post by: Paul_Maul on August 09, 2017, 07:36:10 AM
Absolutely, I would guess probably 95+ % of all graded tan Gadzookas  and Tieds are wonder breads.
Title: Re: WP Forum PSA Archive
Post by: NationalSpittoon on August 09, 2017, 02:38:40 PM
I'll expand upon a different card which is even harder to find not miscut than Shot Wheels. The culprit's name is Jerky Fruits.

If you haven't noticed, a Jerky Fruits NM-MT 8 showed up on ebay. I might show a scan of my keeper so far but it is of course miscut. Not as awful as most, but still bad.

Auction link: eBay auction: #272790045993

What does everyone think this will go for? I know this is likely a sought after title in 8 simply for the people who strive to get the highest registry grades under their name. (It is actually owned by PSA User: Ghosts1157.) But is it really worth $375? There is one higher graded Jerky Fruits, actually.
Title: Re: WP Forum PSA Archive
Post by: Paul_Maul on August 09, 2017, 02:47:49 PM
I agree that's a very tough title. Maybe you realize this, but the eBay seller and Ghosts1157 are one and the same. Like 70topcat, he is just putting some of his tough cards up for sale at very high prices, being willing to let them go if someone bites. I don't see this as a terribly attractive 8, but you never know if the right buyer comes along.

Yeah I know it is him. His sets are labelled as owned by "Inlineonline" on PSA, but he changed his name to "Ghosts1157." It is nicely centered, but as I mentioned, there are some people who want the cards just because they are graded high. I can see that, but I like pretty cards...

Here's my Jerkyfruits and you'll see why I'm not too bent on finding a good one.

I bought it from someone else. There's a guy I met through Collectors Universe forums who digs up great wackys and usually offers them to me before putting them on eBay. The submission he just got back was unbelievable. Two of the 10s were on eBay last night but are now gone.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can request no qualifiers and the grade is lowered accordingly.

Yep. Checked the population report for white back 2nds and the Ajerx is 1 of 1, and the Fishbone is 1 of 2. Any idea what he sold them for? Or what is his ebay name?

EDIT: His ebay ID is "cardster1", Fishbone sold for $550.

He also sold the only Jerkyfruits MINT 9 for $800. Along with Series 9 Shake n Skip GEM MINT 10 for $600, Pop 1 of 2. GEM MINT 10 Czechlets Pop 1 of 3 sold for $480. He also sold a couple red ludlow 2nds, lots of rarities.
Here's a link to his profile for those interested, he has several other PSA's on there including a NM-MT 8 Black Lud Boo Hoo and several 10's. Along with a full series 1 set raw.

Hmm. Wasn't there someone on the forum a while ago who wanted to purchase PSA graded 1sts without lines around the border? I would probably stab at the Mrs Klean so I would have a 79 test sticker but I'm not sure about being allowed to take the card out of the holder. Not sure if there's a process for that.

Yeah, well in theory, if you crack a card out to resubmit it, they want you to send them the cert label, but frankly no one ever bothers, so the pop report is already FUBAR. Especially for high demand cards where a bump is worth big money, the pop report is really inaccurate in bumpable grades.

While irrelevant, not really sure what FUBAR means. I guess I can use my context clues rather than assuming it means "f-ed unbelievably already."

Back on topic, I can see what you mean with bumpable grades. (With emphasis being put on cards like a Jolly Mean 21 VG3, Ratz AUTH, Cracked AUTH.)

I wonder why people will keep a card like T206 Honus Wagner graded at AUTH? Is it because people will pay more to have it in their registry? Will people pay less raw because they want it in their registry and have to get it graded at a higher premium than normal to do so? Either way it would sell for big money, but none get "bumped" even though one might prefer it non graded, and/or want the thrill of it coming back getting a better grade than expected. What do you think?
Title: Re: WP Forum PSA Archive
Post by: Paul_Maul on August 22, 2017, 02:13:34 PM
I'm not sure what you're saying, but cards that are graded AUTH are usually that way because they are deemed to be altered.

For a T206 Wagner the AUTH is huge because it shows it is not a fake.

I'm saying (for example) that the population of 8s is usually inflated because a 9 is often worth 5-10 times more, so trying to re-sub has a big upside.

For example I just picked up this '73 Clemente because I feel it is a super nice 8 that could reasonably be a 9. If I ever feel like cracking and re-submitting (or reviewing) it could go from an $80 card to $400+. For really valuable cards that are high end the card may be re-subbed many times looking for that valuable bump, thereby throwing the pop report into disarray.

Here you see my confusion. I thought what you meant by "Bump" was to take the card out of the holder and own it raw. Now I understand what you are talking about.

Oh, sorry, yeah, bump means the grade of the card is increased upon review or resubmission.

I didn't know there was a 1973 Clemente card.  By Opening Day (around the time the first original series Wackys appeared), he had been elected posthumously to the HOF.

Anyone who needs PSA 9 series 9 titles should go to Cardster1's ebay as he listed several, along with series 2 and 3 titles as well. The link is still in an above post of mine.

(8/27) - Cardster1 listed five 1967 Diecuts including Moron Salt and Campy.

Nice!  you are really adding some nice high grade stickers to your collection lately

Post by: Paul_Maul on August 30, 2017, 02:21:15 PM
I find the 4th series really aggravating because so many are toned. There aren't enough high grade glossies around to go that route like there are with 5ths, so I've had a really hard time finding nice, white ones.

Alert....if anyone is considering purchasing any of the 1st series PSA Wackys currently being offered by smrcollectibles on eBay, you should know they are all 1979 test stickers. Not sure where they came from, but the die cuts show them to not be real 1st series stickers.
Good to know. To bad for the person who purchased the PSA 9 lavirus. Good eye on that. I did not notice it.  How much is a test series worth though?

Hope someone else partook in "Nutzaboutcards" fire sale last night. Lots of PSA wackies went up and only a NM/MT 8 Garbage Candy even went over 40 bucks. With wanting to save up for the fall show I only bid on a Dimwit Dots PSA 8 and got outbid in the end by a dollar. (Would have probably bid again if I didn't have to stay up to ten o' clock..) Should've bid on the Shots PSA 7 to go with my 5th series because it only went for like 3 dollars or something.

Running actual auctions gives sobering insight into what stuff is actually worth. Die cuts, 1st and 16th series aside, there is a yawning chasm between PSA 8 and PSA 9 values these days.

Actually, looking at the results, a lot of the 8s sold for more than I would have expected.

My first ever PSA Submission, I subbed two cards with Paul_Maul's order. (Thanks!!)

Nothing new here.  The last two months, I've been focused on selling toys and models in an attempt to make some room in my horribly overfilled house.  With all this new loot from toy selling, maybe I'll start looking for graded Wackys again soon  :P :P    Or, I'll start listing my extra PSAs along with the toys...........  at least those don't need all kinds of special sized boxes!

I might be interested in some. I'm watching a PSA 7 Shots (Series 5) on eBay. It looks nicer than any 8's on there. I'd be interested to see what you have for sale. I feel like I want to work on completing the 16th series and Diecuts first but they will take a while anyways, so why not?

Got an email from PSA yesterday - they have a 1st quarter special of $10 per card (post 1955), with a 25 card minimum. 
Title: Re: WP Forum PSA Thread
Post by: NationalSpittoon on January 05, 2019, 04:55:25 AM
I want to bring this up here:

Does anyone else get bothered by the fact that PSA orders the cards alphabetically and not by the checklist? It just doesn't seem true to the cards considering checklists are a part of the master set...

Until January 1, there was a permanent bulk rate of $10 for 10 or more cards. While that has been done away with, itís hard to get excited about a ďspecialĒ like this. Unfortunately, itís the best weíll ever see again Iím afraid.

My CC renewal sub, which used to be 7 day turnaround, is now 20-day, and is on the 20th day with nothing. Another guy on the CU forum is on day 27. This is the new normal so that every POK…MON card in Asia can be graded.

The handful of my Wackys that went in last year took MONTHS.  I have a few left that might be worth trying, but I am leaning towards just selling them raw on evilbay. 

I imagine the Pokemon cards, with their curved corners, are easier to get higher grades for.  Aside from that factor, they also are not all that old, and didn't come with gum or wax issues.  I remember searching for quite some time to find a Charizard for my boyfriend's nephew.........  scored one just a few days before Christmas.

I swear this would get a 9 - 10 if subbed.

This would do well, also.

Too bad I do not feel like subbing any.. I don't have a membership and it is not cost effective whatsoever.
Eh, figured I would post about it anyways.

There is no new cheap offer. What are you referring to?

Post by: NationalSpittoon on January 13, 2019, 03:15:22 PM

Just refer to my sarcasm, please. I guess I should have followed it up with an emote, like this one:  :hal:

Wait a minute...

Eh, I'm bored.
School's tomorrow, no useless posts..

Useless posts will be...

CANCELLED :]  ;D  ;D  ;)  >(

...So, yeah. I know there's no cheap offer. I was more so saying that because there are a few cards I am looking to sub. I have come to the conclusion that I am not really going to purchase any reissues, most likely, anymore. I will likely sub my ones that I expect to get a 10. (And I only picked out four. Disappointing, am I right?) I, from there, would likely purge my others and buy other 10's. They're affordable mint copies. Seems like a better solution to me.
The graded reissues don't really gain any value but it's more for the fact that I know they are mint than anything. They have more value as 10's than if they aren't, or are raw.
