    Crossed this over with a minimum of "1" from some random grading company in a "4" case. I knew it was legit but was unsure of the grade. Then I sold way too early and really just wish I would have kept my only Cobb.

    Impossible for me to remember the first graded card I purchased. Had to be at least 20+ years ago. Best guess maybe a Vince Carter rookie.

    The first PSA card I ever bought was in the early years of PSA about 1990 or 1991. It was a 1967 Yaz PSA 7. I was mad at the time because I could not take the card out of the case. That card is long gone. My first PSA card purchase I kept was this Billy Cannon. I bought it at a card show in Dallas somewhere between 2000-2001. I do remember I paid $8 for it.

    No pics but there was a group of cards long since sold that I bought in March/April 1999 from Scottsdale Baseball Cards. 87 Donruss, Donruss Rookies, Fleer Update Maddux's, 86 Donruss Canseco, 87 Topps Bonds, 91 Ultra Updates of Mussina, Rodriguez and Gonzalez. Everything was PSA 9 which was a much bigger deal at the time than now. The Bonds and Canseco were in the $100 range, 87 Donruss Maddux was in the $75 range.

    No pics of mine, but it was a PSA 8 1998 Upper Deck Randy Moss rookie, bought circa 1999-2000. I was a huge Moss fan at that time.

    Main collecting focus is Patrick Roy inserts/game-used/autograph cards.
    Also collecting Cal Ripken Jr., Ken Griffey Jr. and Frank Thomas; Donovan McNabb rookie cards.

  • Submitted this sometime in 1998 when the card was red-hot.

    Traded for this in 1990, had it graded at the 2002 National in Chicago.

    Bought raw from an ad in SCD. Was told by another seller that the guy I bought it from altered cards. Had a shop owner submit it for me.

    I did the same thing - must have been 1997 or 1998 - first submissions were my first PSA cards. I joined and sent in my first 6 free grades as follows:
    a 1971 Topps Mays, 1961 Topps Drysdale, Gibson and Spahn, 1959 Morrell Podres and a McQwire rookie. All came back as 8s except Podres, which scored a 7.

  • I got my first PSA-slabbed card in about 1991-1992. The idea of TPGs was totally foreign to me at that point. The card was a 1956 Topps Bob Feller that was a PSA 8, if I remember correctly. Wish I still had it.
