It's a hobby to me - always has been, always will be. I understand the need for grading, but I collect cards, not hard plastic slabs graded by monkeys.

Plus, I don't know - somehow they just seem happier when they're free...

wasn't a knock on the cards themselves. just the system. I can pretty much get behind everything you say above.

However I have seen some BCCG 10's where I wonder how the card inside is supposed to be Mint or better, but that's no different than wondering about a grade in any company's slab.

Yeap, We can all find cards from ALL tpg's that we scratch our collective heads on. BCCG is no different in that respect. Heck, I would like to find some nice cards in BCCG holders as I am very confident they are good and they will sell for less than with a different companies flip.

I also trust that cards in BCCG holders are good (regardless of the grade). I find that cards in BCCG holders sell for about the same as raw cards in similar conditions. As a result, I look for BCCG cards then crack them. By doing this, I basically get free authentication since they have gone through Beckett.
