im sorry, but that is complete excrement, and completely untrue.

dance like no one is looking, but also, dance like everyone should be looking at you.
truthfully, one leads to the other

RE: The registry is down
I have to agree w Jacoby. I've been very vocal and critical about the registry on a consistent basis and I've never been censored.

RE: The registry is down
My position is if we can't register the cards we have graded then why grade at all??

I totally agree but apparently Beckett either doesn't care or doesn't get that point.

RE: The registry is down
I wouldnt go so far as to say the only reason we grade our cards is for registry purposes. The registry is really just an added bonus for me. But, it is something I definitely desire to have as it compliments and adds to my joy of collecting.

Wanted: any 1989 Upper Deck cards graded 9.5 accross the board or better.

I agree and I certainly grade for reasons outside the registry.

In the case of my 1966 Topps Venezuelan set though, the registry is THE reason I set out to complete a graded set, since only two sets exist in the graded card universe (both PSA).

I'm about 84 complete, with about 40 PSA crossovers and 50 more raw cards waiting for BVG. At this point, I'm not even confident that there ever will be a registry again.

WOW, thats quite an UNUSUAL goal! Smile Why that set in particular?

It was combination of things . . . I noticed Topps Venezuelans were very hard to find in good condition when I bought my first one about 8 years ago on ebay, from a dealer in Venezuela, a 1966 Ray Barker that wound up grading a BVG 7.5, putting it in the upper 3% of ALL graded 66 VZs among all grading companies.

Then I noticed, there was only one registered set in PSA and none in BVG and SGC at the time. I figured it would be a good challenge and good alternative to the regular US 1966 set. I know you appreciate the challenge aspect since you're a building 9.5+ only set. How far do you have to go?

I also lived in Venezuela for a year as a kid, so there was some small connection there too.
