Grades are ready.. need help

Earlier Reveal Grades are now viewable sooner to inform and extend your selection process. I can’t seem to find a way to look at the grades before they are sent back to me. Can someone help?

    First put on your jock strap.
    I hope you don’t need one.

    Provide more detail.

    Have you been informed that they are graded? In QA? In shipping?

    There’s a new PSA APP (not the Registry app) that streamlined a lot of what you’re looking for, too.

    Here is a screenshot from the app.

    When I click on the card, I only see the original scan from the intake of the card. My understanding is this is when you can decide to send back home, vault or Goldin.

    Log out and back in... Maybe try the "Beta" view if you have that option.

    You’re fine - they’ll pop at some point during QA and then you’ll have even more time before they hit shipping, as well.

    Use the website.
    The app is not great.
    I've had the grades ready and showing for close to a week now using the website.
    The app still says QA check with no grade reveal.

    Go to the email you received when the order was first logged in, press on the button and the old way is viewable and you will see the grades

    I was finally able to see the grades. It allowed less than 24 hours to decide where I wanted them shipped. I didn’t know it would allow such a small window of time. It’s just not enough time before they ship.

    I just now got a email saying my grades are ready, when it went from step "QA check" to "Completing". LOL
    The grades were already revealed a week ago when I checked my order on my own, but I was never notified then.
    They did however already charge my card for the full amount when it still the 'Grades are ready' stage, and they didn't know if I was going to vault any of the cards at that point.
    I first said I liked the idea, but this new system sure has a lot of issues, and a lot of extra time added to when you get your cards returned.
    This was not well thought out.

    Agreed, Ron. I really don't understand what PSA is doing. The customer is asked to fill out the order form on line before submitting. You would think that once the submission is received by PSA the system should automatically print out labels and the accounting of all cards are made. My last two invoices sat in ID and research for four weeks before hitting the graders. I can't tell if PSA is so busy they don't know which way is up or if their system for intake is not operating well. Their grading of the cards is a completely different issue.

    Looking for high grade rookie cards and unopened boxes/cases

    The same just happened to me. It was less than 24 hrs from email saying grades are ready to the order's been shipped.
    Only because I obsessively daily checked the status of my order, I was able to see the grades a week ahead, but for those that wait for the grades are ready email, they are given very little time to decide.

    It seems the new system was put in place for the added feature of the "slow roll" grade reveals, where the cards are blurred out and face down and you have to swipe to flip it over for the grade.
    Seems like a lot of wasted time and energy, but I guess some people like it.
    (I personal don't like YouTube reveals that cover the grade and sloooowly slide their finger to show the grade.)
    And as I said, I was able to see all the grades of each card all at once. I prefer this no nonsense way, but that's me.
    Then a week later I get the grades are ready with the slow roll feature. LOL
    Umm...too late.
