The world's most trusted source in collecting

Then, I just bought a PSA card last week and the card inside it is just as loose! And people say that send their cards to PSA for "protection".... sure.
It seems to me that a PSA case would just snap in half if you drop it in the floor. I may be wrong but it just seems flimsy to me.
The only pet peeve that I have with Beckett is that a couple of cards from my last order returned with crumbs inside the slabs. [They grade cards while they are having lunch!? Really??] But anyway, besides that and one miss-label I've never had any further problems with Beckett.
I would be nearly impossible to convince me to grade with PSA or SGC.

However, the handful of PSA cards that I have owned all moved so much that by just handing the card to somebody , you can feel it move a little. Doesn't present a feeling of trust inside the holder at all.
Quote:Additionally, what do some of you do with your cards that causes them to be damaged in the first place in the slabs? Use them as the "ball" in a game of football? If I sat there and shook the heck out of my slabs, sure there will be damage but I can't for the life of me imagine why I would sit there and do that anyway unless it's to make some sort of "point". Heck, shake the BGS slab hard enough and the card moves in the inner sleeve as well.
