Beckett Grading with Scanning
When grading, how many would like to receive an email confirming grades and include a high resolution scan of each graded card?

RE: Beckett Grading with Scanning
how many of you expect that beckett should give you that service - specifically the scan - for free?

A confirmation email for grades is already being sent.

RE: Beckett Grading with Scanning
I would like scans but Grading is expensive enough and I think the scanning would be cost prohibitive from a supply and demand stand point.

RE: Beckett Grading with Scanning
Scans are nice, but I sure wouldn't want to pay any extra. As it's been said, grading is costly enough. And besides, I have 2 scanners, I can do it myself. From a cost standpoint, scanners are so inexpensive now, to me it's cheaper in the long run to buy a scanner and do it myself as opposed to paying Beckett an added charge to the grading price. This is especially true if you have a lot of cards to get graded, I probably have at least 100 singles for my 1961 Topps set; an added charge for scanning would be prohibitive.

My suggestion was that they include a high resolution scan when they send email with grades. It will be a small additional to the processing that they do already to prepare the cards after grading.

It is beneficial for Beckett since it would separate their service level from other grading firms.

If you want a loyal customer base, you want to provide an additional service that others are not providing. Beckett has a routine in printing, prepping and sealing slabs. An additional step of a scan would not be a substantial burden. It might add a few seconds to the processing, but would have the potential of bringing new customers.

Like you said, scanners are cheap. Beckett could add scanners just like you and save you time.

Beckett can add this to improve their service level and customer loyalty or PSA can add this service before Beckett and Beckett risk losing some customers to the higher service level being offered.
Having a competitive edge is good for any business. Scanning would help everyone from Beckett, collectors, and buyers.

1. Collectors would benefit since not all of us have a high resolution scanners.
2. Buyers would benefit since they will have a Beckett certified scan.
3. Beckett has scan of their grading for internal quality control and tracking of graded slabs. They can also add directly to their registry.
