Ultra Modern = Ultra Fast

I sent a 17-card ultra modern order under the New Year special. I sent it at the end of Jan and the grades popped today, 2 weeks!

I hit 11/17 PSA 10's, the best being a 2018 Optic Ohtani Aqua RC and a bunch of Leaf Auto RCs - mainly returning college QBs. Very happy with the results. The rest got PSA 9 and one PSA 8.

    My 70s Special has been in assembly longer than that, before your sub was even received by PSA.
    Makes no sense that my cards are already graded, waiting to be holdered, and others subs are processed, graded, and jump the assembly line.

    Interesting, my order was graded in NJ even though I live an hour away from Newport.

    Did I miss something? Does ultra modern go to NJ now? It doesn't seem economical for ship the order across the country and back.

    I sent in quite a few 70s Holiday Specials and all are back except one! That one's in Grading too, and I think it'll be back before the end of the month.

    Good luck.

    My 50's special from November 9 completed assembly two weeks ago but grades have not shown up yet. The oddest PSA order experience in a couple of years for me.

    Mine just hit last week, so it's probably close. I had almost all my 70s back before that hit.

    probably only a handful of people grading the older cards, so those orders take much longer...the new shiny cards can be done by a multitude of the new graders I assume...

    Same with me. They gave me the 50 day turnaround time. It turned out the total time it took from me shipping to CA, to the cards coming back to me from NJ (which I pondered in another post) was less than four weeks (or maybe four weeks exactly. Either way, it was FAST).

    As an aside, is the February MLB special for all baseball cards valued under $400 regardless of year, or like the other special where it was from 1993-present?

    1993 to present.

    Some orders are getting through fast, but my ultra modern orders that arrived during the last 3-4 weeks haven't moved. Expecting many of them to take 6-8 weeks at this point.

    That's surprising. I had a smaller ultra modern before my 17 card order take a little more than 2 weeks end to end.

    Mine were prior to that. I searched other online spaces (twitter, blowout, etc) and saw a fair amount of other people who also weren't seeing any movement with their subs. Maybe it depends on how new the cards are. Once they get to grading, most orders seem to go quickly. R&ID and Assembly seem to be the most common sticking points.
