Beckett Grading at the 2016 National Sports Collectors Convention



Heading to the National Sports Collectors Convention this week? Beckett Grading is. Not only does that mean you’ll have a chance to get your cards graded on site or drop them off, but you can check out some of the other BGS services.

Here’s a list of some of the offers available to National attendees.

On-Site Grading

On-site grading lets you drop off your cards and pick them up at the show. The price varies based on the number of cards you’re getting graded:

• 1-9 cards: $35/card
• 10-29 cards: $30/card
• 30-99 cards: $25/card
• 100+ cards: $20/card

Raw Card Review

The BGS Raw Card Review lets you know what a card would grade without the slab. Cards are graded and returned with tamper-proof protection. If you’d like to have the card slabbed and formally graded, that can be done as well at an extra cost.

• 1-5 cards: $10/card
• 6-50 cards: $8/card
• 51-99 cards: $7/card
• 100+ cards: $6/card

Graded Card Review

The BGS Graded Card Review is for those considering to cross over cards from other grading companies and encapsulate. It can also be helpful to those looking for a second opinion on a grade they’ve received. The BGS staff examine the graded. It’s similar to the Raw Card Review and is returned with tamper-proof protection.

• 1-5 cards: $10/card
• 6-50 cards: $8/card
• 51-99 cards: $7/card
• 100+ cards: $6/card

While You Wait Preview

Time is precious when you’re at the National. The While You Wait is essentially a head-of-the-line service for those using the BGS Raw Card Review and Graded Card Review.

• $25/card

All BGS services at the 2016 National are based on a first-come, first-served basis. BGS staff will be working extremely hard but it is possible that orders could be cut off. Some rates, like the While You Wait Preview, are also based on demand and could change. BGS staff will be able to let you know of exact prices at the show in case of changes.

Also, if you have any questions about BGS services at the 2016 National, you can email and they’ll get back to you as soon as possible. They can also be found on Twitter at @beckett_grading.
