L, If you can, LMK how. I tried everything but the USC marching band and couldn't do it without putting the card at serious risk.
By the way, STOP BUYING PRO GRADED CARDS!!!

I haven't won a PRO Ebay auction yet - but some of the cards look real nice from the scans. Won't know until I'm holding one in person. though. I just received my first GAI card (NM/MT). Better than a PSA, a hair below an 88. I plan to cross-over for a common holder and the set registry. $3 is a pretty sweet deal.

The GAI is a hard call on what I think a cross-over grade will be. I have noticed SGC's 88's can vary greatly lately - I will post my results in about a month - my guess is an 86.

I also have some stuff to cross over. I have a few GAI cards now. I actually think they're accurately graded. They look cool in that holder so I'll only cross over my Becketts and PSA's. Anyone know how to open these?

BigRed,

Your best bet is to let Sgc and the grader open the other company's holder(s).
They know what they are doing and should be able to tell if a card will
cross over. At least this is how I go about it with the crossover service.
You can always call them and ask them for the best course of action.

Old, dense-headed hammers are cool. Best nail pounders.

I've been successful using something a bit less than a chain saw...but not much!

A chop saw actually works great -- I chop the holder between the card and the tag and then use a little screw driver to do the rest. It sounds really wicked, but it works. A friend of mine uses a similar technique -- but a hand saw version.

I forgot to add -- I agree 100% with aconte -- let the folks at SGC look at the card first...and just tell them the minimum grade that you would be OK with...then you have nothing to risk except the x-over fee. I used the chop saw trick when I was submitting elsewhere.

Hey SS --

In reply to:

Do you know whether a preliminary review is included in the "Set Registry" special pricing for cross-overs ... or would that be an extra charge? I know that, in the past, SGC has advertised a cross-over review for $5 which would then be applied to the cost of the cross over if you chose to proceed ... but that was when the cost of crossing over was higher ($15 ... ???). Also, is there a "bust out" fee?

Any inside scoop would be helpful.

BTW, has anyone actually taken advantage of the cross-over special yet?

Yeah, I sent in 5 cards for cross-over about 1 week ago. PSA/GAI assortment (50's & 60's). I set an achievable min SGC grade (80) for all of the cards. For $3 per card - the cost of shipping on my small quantity made no sense to set a high Min grade and run the risk of a returned card. All of the cards are going to run in the 86 - 92 grade range. Sole purpose is to match the rest of my collection - SGC only.

I did cross-over 1 card at the very high rate of $15 - a gorgeous 59 Drysdale changed over to a 92. Up until a few months ago - I had not purchased a non-SGC vintage graded card. Having picked up a few GAI and PSA's - I reaffirmed my stance to collect only SGC cards. I think SGC does a great job. I hope SGC keeps the lower cross-over fee rather than running a limited time special.

Curious - are there any other 1950's Bowman collectors out there?

Thanks

I cross-overed sixteen cards PSA and BGS cards I had from the 1967 Topps Football set I'm collecting. It completes this set of SGC-graded cards. I'm pretty happy with the crossover grades, and now I'm going to concentrate on upgrading the set. I'm hoping to get a few more potential graded candidates to cross-over before the Set Registry Special offer goes away. I'm also looking for raw cards that could upgrade this set.

Good luck with your cross-over experience.

-Daniel
