Well the day some of us have been waiting for is finally here. Due to the articles I wrote this past year defining the complete set of 5 x 7 Nike Poster cards that were released from 1982/83 through 1992, PSA is now accepting all NIKE poster cards for grading. That's right all 4 types.
Bob Lemke, old friend, if your up there looking down on all us collectors I know your proud of me !
That's the good news...The bad news is that since PSA still appears to be overwhelmed with business, they have raised the price for grading these oversized 5 x 7's to $50 each earlier this fall. For me that means no more grading until the prices come back to earth. While some collectors out there are OK spending $20 to grade a 1987 Topps card worth a penny I cannot do that. I have been waiting to grade these Nike cards for a long time and I guess I will have to wait a little longer.
I did manage to get a few of them in before the price increases hit early this fall and just got a few back. So here is the first example of the newly graded Nike Poster cards. Fittingly I thought it should be 290201
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all !
