    KSA

    Anyone Know How KSA Compares To BGS?
    I Went To The Expo With A Great Card To Get Graded But Beckett Didn't Come So I Went To KSA Instead.
    If Anyone Is Wondering My SWEET Graded Card Is A 02-03 SP Game Used Edition Jason Spezza RC /750.
    The Grade I Got....................................9.5:D

    hey cujoluva,

    of the lesser known grading companies (all the companies besides BGS, PSA, SGC), KSA is one of the better ones. i'd say that your KSA 9.5 spezza would compare to a 9 BGS, 9 or MAYBE (but probably not) 9.5 PSA, and a 96 SGC. it is still a very nice card from a respectable grading company.

    there is a possibilty that your spezza could get an 8.5 from bgs depending on the centering. bgs is way more strict on centering than any other grading company. on the other hand, that card could possibly fetch a 98 from SGC.

    i always wanted to send a card into a lesser grading service (i.e. TFA, KSA, or the like) and if it got a 9.5 or 9 or something i wanted to crack open the case and send it into BGS just to see what would happen....but i am not rich and i dont feel like wasting money on that. lol

    In my opinion if it isn't PSA or BGS it isn't going to bring as much, most collectors that I know won't pay premiums for cards that aren't graded by those companies...

    I get all of my cards done by KSA, even though they are a great grading company, it's put down because it's from Canada. PSA and BGS are over-hyped, and have switched cards, I know about it first hand with PSA. KSA does a more then remarkable job, and will send them more in the future, for grading to add to my collection.

    Who is KSA? I have never heard of them until now. There are so many grading card companies it is no wonder I have never heard of them. The main ones IMO that are good are : 1)BGS, 2)PSA, 3)SGC and 4)PGA. All others I would not even dare to look at depending on the card and the price they are asking. Welp any info on KSA would be great. :)

    What first hand info do you have on PSA switching cards, I would be interested to know being how this would probably put them out of business???
