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.

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...

Yes, in fact. But nearly everything bothers me!

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.

Do you know why you don't want to go to the bathroom with a Pokemon?

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

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.

Nice! De-Mented is an edge of the sheet title and thus one of the tougher die cuts to find well centered and in nice shape.

It is a bit OC to the left, but it doesnít bother me all too much. Super clean back, and bright colors. Couldnít resist buying it. I like the die-cuts more and more everyday.

Even better than the Muller is my hand behind it, attempting to find a justifiable angle that prevents reflection.

To my Wacky Package friends that collect PSA cards. I just had these 4 PSA card holders produced. They are awesome to display your cards in a 3 Ring binder! Years ago Ultra Pro made them and they were very popular but they stopped production. The Ultra Pro's were 5 mil thick, I had these made 8 mil! The cards snap in easily and sit very secure.  Similiar but not the same quality are on Ebay for $8 per sheet, I will sell them to Forum members for $5.75 per and a little better for bulk.

This is a cool concept. For me, it is a bit of a space issue considering I already have toploader binders of which take up an incredible amount of space. Nice either way.

The cards though, unbelievable! Choke Wagon 9? Okay now...

Those pages look really nice!  Can't afford them for my whole collection (not enough space, either), but maybe for the really special ones.

For any of you interested, there's an app called Camscanner (of which I found out about because of school) where you take pictures on your phone and you can crop and edit photos as if it were a scan. It's really nice for scanning any Wackys, and I'll put a couple PSA ones here because those are the ones that I actually want good scans for. Try and find decent lighting, and get the least reflection of your smartphone as possible, snap the picture, and it will crop it. If the cropping is off, drag one of the corners and it'll magnify it for you so that you can see what you're cropping with ease. Then, you can see settings that brighten the photo to look closer to a scan. I use the filter/option to the right of the original one. Don't remember the name, but it only slightly brightens it. If you choose the next one over from that, it'll make the most toned card ever look alpine white...

Here's a couple examples:

how is it different than just simply editing a photo on your phone? I can do all those things currently

The filters mimic a scan more in my opinion, and if youíre taking a photo of a card, but you took it slightly crooked, you can crop the photo without it having to be square. If you donít want the crop to be an exact right angle, you donít have to. Not sure how to explain it better, but itís really useful.

It doesnít really address the negatives of a photo vs. a true scan though. I still see shadows.
