I am so disappointed
**See corrected copy below **
The results of my submission that I recently received were so disappointing that I have not looked at the submission since I checked it in over 4 months ago. Now, I understand being disappointed with some grades. I have sent in over 100 submissions to PSA, so I have had my share of disagreements. However, this is the first time I disagree with the majority of a submission.
Let me start from the beginning. Among my PSA Registration sets are 1960 and 1961 Fleer Team Logo Decals and 1961 Fleer World Series Pennants. Always looking to upgrade these sets, about a year and a half ago I found three auctions in a major card company catalog. The description for the lots stated that the owner took the logos out of the wax packs in the 1960's and were immediately put in an envelope. They were not handled again until put up for auction. The scans in the auction did indeed show the logos and pennants had many, many pristine examples. Feeling this was the find of the decade for these kinds of logos, I bid and won all three auctions. I thought this was my best chance to get some high grades including many 10's.
I checked over the logos and pennants when I received them. There were indeed many pristine items. I submitted the best logos and pennants. Except for the off center items, the logos and pennants were centered, had sharp corners, no marks, no creases or bends, good color and sharp focus.
Eleven and a half months later I received my grades. The grades ranged from 3 to 9. Not a single 10. I showed the submission to a couple of card collecting friends of mine. They compared some of the items from the sub to some of the logos and pennants in my sets. They said the 8's I received are better than the 9's in my sets, there is something wrong here.
My friends urged me to write a letter to PSA and explain my plight. I thought I would first post my problem on the PSA forum board. Maybe someone here has an idea about what I can do. I am just devastated by the submission grades and have such an empty feeling.
