Thread: Grading...

  1. #1


    When selling cards that are graded.... do people usually want a specific grader? I see PSA is very common, but u need to join there membership, and i dont want to as, i wont be getting many graded. So what would be the next best thing? Beckett? SGC? Global Authentication?

    You don't have to join PSA's club to submit cards. I submit cards there once and a while and I am not a member. Memebers just get a newsletter from them and discounts on grading. The next best thing would depend on what you are grading. SGC's vintage graded cards have been getting great amounts on most of their auctions that I saw. BGS is great for modern cards.

    I think they just made it so you have to be part of the club again recently, but I could be mistaken.
