RE: Vintage Card Story
The other thing is, to me, they've made the Grading process, much, much, too complicated. There are far too many grades-- its simply far too complicated for the average collector.

I mean, if you look on eBay, for cards under $25, unless the cards are "professionally" graded by one of the top three firms-- you have absolutely no idea what you are buying or selling.

There's so much room for error. One guys "near mint" is another guys "very good."

Fewer classifications would make it easier to home-grade-- so at least cards could circulate and get into the right collections at a reasonable price-- then once the've found a "home" in a similarly "rough" graded collection, then get a pro grade for posterity or resale purposes.

Is there such thing as a "rough-grade" grading system?

The same thing happened in the coin-collection area (which I assume the card grading industry is based on.)

There are so many phony graded coins out there the field is a joke.
