This additive is good for those who sell at card shows or outdoor where the bright light can effect them over time. For most collectors not really needed. But for the price people pay for card grading they should have the additive.

I am about 75% sure I am getting out of the whole grading my collection business. I did it mainly for protecting my PC, making sure other people who handle my cards won't damage them. I chose Beckett because they have the strongest holders, but I just can't get myself to send any more in due the poor service of their web site and the non-existent registry. Over one year and nothing!! That is just bad business.

If I were to resell cards, especially anything prior to 1990, you would have to go with PSA. I really hate the look of a PSA case. If SGC gets the ability to slab thicker cards, I would seriously think about them.

Thanks for the compliment! I am surprised I have at least a 75% approval rating...I can be a real a$$ at times, but I am a really just a softy with sausage fingers who types fast.

As for the UV protection. I can't find anything that says they contain UV protection. Show me otherwise and I will believe you.

But I do agree with ricelynnenvans, it should be anon factor. Unless you are attending outdoor card shops in Puerto Vallarta.

Over the years have seen faded cards in holders, mainly at fleet market and outdoor events. UV Link on page 1 under my comment, Yes they do.

Here is the link.

If I may interject. That's an old list and a few of them no longer apply, but the UV protection has been discussed on here before in another thread. IT Guy said that an amount is added to the plastics to make the slabs. After a certain amount is added to the formula, it begins to change the integrity of the slab. If in doubt, contact IT Guy.

Have seen PSA and SGC cards suffer damage, it's not just sun light, bright indoor lighting can case issues as well. If your paying all this money for grading, you want the best holder you can get to protect your cards. Rather or not you want UV protection or not is one preference

I'm more interested in an accurate grade. My cards sit in a closed box in the closet which is always dark anyway.

And that's exactly what you get with Beckett!!
