Comments: In January, 2010 I purchased two complete 1988 T&M Umpire sets on eBay for $17 inc S&H from one seller and five sets from another for $18. I picked the best Harvey singles out and set them aside for PSA submission. I received this PSA 8.5 as a gift from a hobby friend Scott Grebenstein on June 11, 2010 - thank you Scott!
UPDATE: Here's a summary of the 1988 Umpires sets I've purchased over the years:
01/04/2010 - 2 for $17.00
01/20/2010 - 5 for $18.00
05/18/2014 - 1 for $13.95
09/11/2014 - 1 for $ 6.00
10/30/2014 - 1 for $14.00
02/17/2015 - 1 for $ 5.00
Total - $73.95
5/11 Harvey cards worth submitting
(see results below):
UPDATE: Purchased another set for $4.99 on 09/30/2015 via eBay – received the box and the Harvey was NM at best.
UPDATE: On November 4th, 2015 I received an email from PSA requesting credit card info because the information on file showed my account was expired. After two months of waiting, my order was ready. Within a few hours my grades were available and I checked the results. I submitted five different Harvey cards and here are the results:
CRAP! No upgrades with this submission…
UPDATE: I won a complete set of 1988 T&M Umpires on eBay for $2.09+$3.00 S&H in Jan/2016. Received it and the Harvey is clean. It should get a MINT+ grade. We'll see.
