Posted By: <b>Paul Carek</b><p>Anyone know anything about SGS? I saw some cards in their holders the other day, and am wondering what sort of reputation they have/had.<br /><br />Thanks.

Posted By: <b>Paul Carek</b><p>I totally agree. I send all my stuff into SGC. I was just considering buying a few things in SGS holders, then cracking them out.

Posted By: <b>ChiSoxFan</b><p>Did a quick google on SGS GRADING COMPANY and found that there is one for grading coins. There site didn't say anything about grading sports cards (www.stargrading.org).<br /><br />Also, looking through some other search results, I found a few articles of "buyer beware" as SGS Grading is "owned" by an eBay Power Seller.<br /><br />ChiSoxFan<br><br>Looking for T206 Sweet Caporal Fact. #30 White Sox in Poor to Fair condition.
