PSA has a great special going on this month. Only $5 a card for any card valued under $100 and produced 1964 or later. I sent in 92 cards which was the largest order I had ever submitted. I sent the cards in August 6th and they were received by PSA on Monday August 8th. The next day I got my email from PSA saying that the cards had been received and were in the process of being graded. I was looking to get these back sometime in early to mid October.
This evening I got an email from PSA telling me that my order was finished and back in the mail! If I start with the day that I got the email from PSA originally, that's a total of 5 business days! I haven't ever seen them beat their projected turnaround time by more than a day, so this just blows me away!
That happens occasionally. One week they're really backed up and the next week they're all caught up. Early this year I sent them two 45-day orders in the same package (one tall-boys, the other regular cards). One order was done in 3 days, the other took 55 days. The bottom like with PSA is... you never know what you're going to get, and if you don't like it, too f-ing bad.
