Got my Ben Gordonin from beckett and they gave it a 9. The thing that brought it down was the surface which got an 8. The surface looks really, really good, so i guess next time ill throw in some bills and maybe they'll give me a higher grade... I expected better....Heres a pic take a look. O and by the way its for sell.

Very nice. It sucks the surface brought it down to a 9. I thought about sending in my Gordon gold refractor auto, but the surface might be like that one, which would suck.

yeah 9 isnt bad though but it could be better

On shiny cards the surface always seems to be the killer. But, a 9 is still nice. I know a guy who sent in a similar style card and got a 4 because of the surface.

I really don't know much about the topic, but i've heard that the sticker, yes, the accual autograph sticker counts as surface. I mean that with the sticker being raised, it can accually draw your grade down. Just some word of warn in the future

Nice card and grade, j/w how much did that cost you total including S&H and everything for the grading alone?

it was like $35

it was like $35

:new_shock now I remember why I never got any cards graded from Beckett lol

With those rates its amazing people can afford all these gradings on some cheaper cards, like even $10 cards get graded, how do these people rationalize it?!

CEO of Beckett: :new_all_c
