Third-party grading has grown by leaps and bounds in the card hobby, and prices has skyrocketed as a result for those in high grades. PSA and SGC are the heavyweights in third-party card grading; Orlando and Hileman share details on how the process has changed.
If you submit cards to third-party grading services and don’t truly know the ins and outs of the final grade, Dave & Adam’s has provided an excellent Card Grading 101 tutorial.
SGC has developed a new autograph authentication division to complement its card grading services. Mike Root will lead the division for SGC.
SGC has followed suit with PSA in offering half grades to its grading scale, effective immediately. SGC will be at the National Convention showing off these new grades and will be open to review cards previously submitted to consider an upgrade that adheres to the new scale.
