Beckett Baseball: Ask the editor
Mintacular Wrote:Why does Beckett sully its otherwise good name (BVG, BGS are GREAT) with the BCCG grading service which is clearly an inferior product? I think it adds confusion to the grading system with the way the # grades and quality descriptor don't match up (i.e. excellent should be associated with 5...)<br />
<br />
I also think some collectors (it happened to my brother once) buy the card feeling rest assured that a grading service like Beckett is high-quality, top-notch when in the case of BCCG clearly it is not. <br />
<br />
While I'm add it, could you improve the quality of the pages in the Beckett Price Guides? They seem to rip very easily and I have to buy new ones all the time. Oops, nevermind, just answered that question Smile<br />
<br />
Thanks!
<br />
<br />
I should have mentioned I don't handle grading, either --- that's an entire separate division of the company ---&nbsp; however here is their FAQ on BCCG:<br />
<br />

<br />
As for paper quality, it's a balancing act between the number of pages and then the cost of the magazine. Printing Beckett Baseball on thicker paper at that number of pages would up the cost of the magazine.<br />
