Mail Day: Don’t ship graded cards in PWEs …

Posted in Hall of Fame Rookie Cards, Hall of Famers, Mail Day with tags , , , , on October 13, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

I was elated to learn via the eBay app that I had received a package in the mail today, one of the vintage grades cards I recently bought off the site.

When I got home I found this … 

  
… A PWE (plain white envelope) containing a rigid item — which was obviously my graded card.

Luckily the case and card are still in good shape.  Honestly, if the case in this instance had been damaged I wouldn’t have been too upset, because the card is headed to Beckett Grading in the near future.

This 1933 Goudey card features Hall of Famer Jim Bottomley in an iconic pose that features Bottomley and his crooked hat.  A must-own rookie card for vintage collectors.
