How to Denote Star Showing on Pack?

I haven't submitted packs since PSA eliminated the comment fields from the submission form. I have a few wax packs with stars showing. How do I point this out in the submission form to ensure the label documents the star when it's slabbed?

    Last month I submitted 20+ packs and was able to write where/when a star was showing.

    Thanks.

    Did you write it on the form after printing it or note it in the comments at the bottom of the submission or somewhere else? I guess I could put in the comments, line 1 = Joe Morgan on back. But I'd prefer to note it in the row it is entered.

    The online submission form will have a choice for the star if they’ve already graded that pack with that star.

    If the star isn’t there, just type it in.

    I printed it out and hand wrote submission.
    For example:
    1975 OPC Baseball Wax Pack -- Lou Brock on back
    1976 Topps Baseball Wax Pack
    1979 Topps Baseball Cello
    1983 Topps Baseball Cello -- Tony Gwynn on top
    etc

    Logged in and estimated time back is April 1st

    Great, thanks for your help. I'll use the overwrite method to add the comment in the pack listing.

    This may not end well!!! Do you think they actually read those forms? I think they just look at them to get the order number and to make sure the item count matches what is in the box, then everything else is looked at on the screen... Only the Autograph sub forms are read since they aren't submitted online. Plus, are you going to write it 2 times as you print out two copies!

  • EchoCanyonEchoCanyon Posts: 2,269 ✭✭✭

    I guess we'll find out in April.
    I see no reason why they wouldn't double-check the form.
    I only wrote it once (and I see it's logged in).

    Stay tuned.

    You would think, but don't depend on it. One time I put notes in the comments that the card I was submitting was an error card, since it was not listed in their database. When the sub was logged in and ready for me to review, the wrong card was listed, so I had to again point out it was an error card.
    To be fair, I have put notes in the comment section and they actually did read it and correctly list the card.

    Also on my SGC submission, I listed a card as 1983 Fleer Sticker and sub came back 1983 Topps sticker. How they didn't catch the discrepancy and verify the graded card label with what I entered on the invoice, I'll never know.

  • wish I knew this , I didn't bother as I was in a rush to get it out. I wonder if you can just put in for a correction once the packs go into grading

  • grote15grote15 Posts: 29,439 ✭✭✭✭✭

    It's very easy to do via the on line submission form. Most stars are already in the database already and for those that aren't you can overtype one that is with the new name before saving the line item to the submission.

    They need to seriously address this issue of cramming excess wrapper into the bumpers and doing all sorts of damage to the pack and cards inside. Only modern packs have this type of wrapper and modern packs don't have gum so there's no need to make sure the pack never moves so much as a hair.

    This pack has an Acuna RC on top and a Soto RC on bottom.

  • gemintgemint Posts: 6,058 ✭✭✭✭✭

    My order just got to the grading stage. One of the packs is a '75 mini with Fred Lynn's rookie showing. I denoted it as such in my submission form. Instead, it got logged in as a generic "Rookie Outfielders". I reported the error but there's no field to comment. So I just reported it as the wrong card on the label. Is that sufficient to get it fixed or is there something else I need to do?

    I don't have an answer, but sounds like you've done all you can do. Let us know how It turns out.

    Sounds like they are designating it like they would with card #622 on the single card flip. Is it a cello? I know they have holdered packs with Lynn on top with his name.

    It's a wax pack. Would that matter?

    I just got an email that the error has been resolved. I checked my order and the notation remains unchanged as 'Rookie Outfielders'. That's frustrating.

    Hopefully, it will be corrected on the flip. Lynn is showing on top I assume?

    Yes it's on top. Surprisingly, my order just reached assembly. This was the December pack special and wasn't forecast to be completed until May.

    Legit collation on that pack...the top 3 cards in a 75 pack are cut from the double asterisk sheets. It's often tough to tell who's showing on top of a 75 wax pack, though, unless the card is faced out, so nice work on that.

    Isn’t it interesting how someone who erroneously claimed that someone was complaining or bashing PSA comes to this forum to do the same.
    Perhaps an email to customer service would suffice.

    The card is face out. The pack came from BBCE. I sent off several of my mini packs that had stars showing. Unfortunately none with Brett or Yount but I have one with Rose, Seaver, McCovey, Morgan and others. PSA wasn't grading minis when I acquired them and I never got around to submitting them until now. It's fun to see the runup in values for these packs. I'm glad I socked away a few boxes when they were readily available.

    Yes, for sure! Though prices for 75 minis have now retreated somewhat significantly from their peak, too.

    There is no "Fred Lynn" card in that set, just the "Rookie Outfielders #622", which just happens to have Fred Lynn along with 3 other players on it. They can only notate it as it is deemed in the set.... Did they just put "Rookie OUtfielders", or did they put #622 as well?

    For the card, that's true, but cello packs with Lynn on top have been noted as such on the flip.

    There is no Gary Carter card either, just "Rookie Catchers-Outfielders #620" but...

    Hah... Maybe because it is a cello top and you can see it, there isn't the possibility of confusion. If the back is showing on the back of a wax pack, Rookie Outfielder and card number is the only thing that you can make out....

    In this case, the Lynn is on top of the pack but even in cases of front or back with wax packs there are ways to identify the card showing for positive attribution.

    For my wax pack, you can easily see Fred Lynn is on the card front.
