How could this possibly happen to two of my registry sets???
For whatever reason, I took a look at my registry sets and found that two of them...that have been not only 100%, but held the #1 position for years, had mysteriously dropped below 100%.
As I took a look, trying to figure what happened, I saw that 3 cards had literally disappeared from my master set, and 2 of the 3 had disappeared from my basic set. The 3rd card was not part of the basic set composition. I go to my physical set and get the cards in question, reenter the cert #s, they're accepted, and both sets are brought back to previous status.
I contact PSA...I am told that one card was removed about 2 weeks ago on a Sunday night...the other two were removed on the following Wednesday night. No explanation can be given to unravel this mystery. I asked that if they could determine when they were removed, could their IT staff determine, who, or how this happened? A follow up email to me tells me this has been referred to the PSA IT staff to try to figure out what happened. I was told that only a person who had my login info could access my sets...nobody has that information...that I know of. I did not remove the cards, but I did put them back. I sent scans of the cards for IT to research the issue.
The timing of the awards deadline does raise an eyebrow...I could be totally wrong. The awards thing is no big deal to me, but from some of the recent posts I've read here, it seems some collectors live for getting awards and are perhaps not so big on collecting per se.
I have had and owned these cards and sets for close to 10 years, only one person is close to me on the basic set, the master is light years beyond any others. The basic set #2 guy is .06 behind me...this "deletion", did put him in the #1 slot and bumped me to #2...can't say this is the case, but the timing is odd. The BIG mystery is how it happened.
