Opinions On GMA Grading Services
Have my eye on a card but have never heard of GMA. Anyone familiar with them and know if they are comparable with BGS or PSA as far as their grading numbers ? This card says it's a Gem Mint 10 but not sure how to compare that to what the other top companies would grade it.

It's not comparable to BGS or PSA. Think of them as a hytop grading company. But, buy the card not the label.

Knock off grading companies try to earn customers repeat business and compete with BGS/PSA/SGC by giving out lots and lots of 10's. I would treat the value of the card as a raw card, do not give ANY price premium based on the grade.

i see cards in GMA, and automatically go somewhere else. i think it's worse than raw pricing

submitted a GMA 10 to becketts and they found that the card had been trimmed. Never buy one of their cards

I've got one with a ridiculous gem mint grade on it ... I'd be lucky if it got an 8.5 from BGS. As was said earlier, buy for the card not the label.
