Sports Card Grading: Appraise Your Collection
What’s Card Grading All About?!
Sports card grading has become extremely popular with the services offered by authentication companies such as Beckett and PSA (Professional Sports Authenticator). For many, the subjective guessing game of purchasing a card can be troublesome – especially if buying online where you can’t see the card. Although still subjective, the top grading companies use a range of standards to place a number on your submission, on a scale of 1-10. In addition, with the influx of cards in the market starting with the 80’s and 90’s, authenticating has created a new market of its own, giving finite populations of various cards for a given graded condition.
To Submit For Grading, Or Not to Submit? That is the Question.
