The grading industry is long overdue for a major overhaul. I hope that whatever technology will be used corrects some or all of the curent problems. I really don't want to hear about the subjectivity of grading. I want to hear about a system that grades cards correctly and will deliver that same grade no matter how many times a card is reviewed. I don't want to hear stories about cards being submitted three times and getting three different grades. If it can't be done right, then it shouldn't be done at all.

I invented the blind spot indicator lights on cars' mirrors to let you know when someone is in your blind spot years before they ever showed up on a car. I wish I had patented that idea even to this day. I always said I was going to sell the idea to Mercedes or BMW as it would have to come out on a luxury car first and then it would become a common feature on all cars. Sure enough...

Oh well. Back to my desk and paycheck.

That's why things are a mess.
i’d posit that if need a whole minute to go over a card (esp if you have a loupe and a grid overlay for centering-which i would hope professional graders have in their toolbox) to grade it, that you’re a slowpoke doing it wrong.

If I were a current TPG I would be looking at this very closely. Wow....Some serious research here.

Hi Fellas,

New guy here. Saw they also secured trademarks. https://trademarks.justia.com/owners...g-llc-3035778/ Interesting stuff. Despite current grading approaches needing an overhaul, I am not sure this is THE answer.
