I really don't think it would make sense in regards to time/money to have multiple graders look at each and every card. However, when you're getting into the cards that are likely to be high visibility such as a BGS 10 or a very desirable/well known card, you're going to want a few people to check it out before it heads out the door just to be certain. We've all seen threads across the internet when a grading company screws up and bad publicity is never a good thing.

You have to have some oversight here. I mean, if a grader's girlfriend breaks up with him the night before, or he stubs his toe on the way to the fridge for a midnight snack, every card he looks at the next day becomes suspect. Maybe he just wants to get out of work for the day, maybe they have quotas like motorcycle cops with tickets, but without a second person to verify those grades, the whole process loses its entire credibility. At least with PSA, at least two people look at each card to verify each other's work, and if one rogue graders has an outlier, they are at least held accountable. I actually can't believe more people aren't interested in knowing the actual process the cards go through once they get to BGS. I hold no one company's water, but at least PSA spells out this process on their web site. As far as BGS goes, all I see on BO Forums are total guesses and complete speculation. But as long as those crazy prospectors get their 9.5's they don't seem to care!
