When purchasing items of different size and/or value (Graded Cards, Over-sized, Lots, Insured Items) the shipping price may vary. In these cases, please email me if you feel that the shipping fee is excessive. I certainly do not want to lose sales because of a site-glitch.
US Postal rates went up significantly at the beginning of 2016, and again in 2017. It now costs a minimum of $3.00 postage to send out just 1 card in a bubble mailer! Unfortunately, I had to adjust my shipping to keep up with the times. You should be able to buy several cards before you are charged more than $3.00 for shipping. Your s/h charges should be in-line with the current postal rates. If you purchase 4 cards, each over $20, then you may be asked to pitch in for your share of the insurance costs. If you feel something was calculated incorrectly, please contact me and If there is a glitch, I will immediately adjust it manually.

PSA/DNA Pre-certified items:
If you see the Pre-Certified logo, it means that the item was reviewed (prior to my purchasing it) by PSA/DNA experts, and is absolutely guaranteed to pass authentication if I choose to submit it in order to receive an actual "COA". During this process, the item is tagged with synthetic DNA that is unique to PSA/DNA, a unique certification number is generated and the information is stored in their database. This service is considered an upgrade, and is offered for an additional fee. So the little square card with the matching holo is actually an, "up-sell" for these items. The pre-certified items already have PSA/DNA's approval, I chose not to pay them extra for the holo, and you are able to purchase it for a lower price as a result. There are many items which I have paid to authenticate. I do my best to also offer those at a lower price than you will find elsewhere!
In order to comply with California's Autographed Sports Memorabilia statute (Civil Code, § 1739.7) All autographed items listed over $4.95 will be accompanied by the appropriate paperwork. Either PSA/DNA COA or LOA, James Spence COA or LOA or PSA/DNA Pre-Certification Document. In the event the item is being represented by myself, it will be clearly stated in the description and these items will be accompanied by TheTOPDOGinLA.com c.o.a. What is more important than the coa, is that I will stand behind any item offered on my site. If an item deemed to be authentic does not pass PSA/DNA or James Spence Authentication upon submission, you may return the item for a full refund + shipping + 10% for your trouble + any additional remedies as allowed by California Law. I have never had an issue and would like to keep it that way.
If you have any questions about ANY of my items, would like an additional scan or pic, please feel free to contact me. I will get back to you same day.
