Agreed. I understand the uniformity aspect for some collectors, but all I care about are the authentication & protection aspects of TPGs. I'd rather allocate any reslab money to more cards.

It doesn't matter to me in the least. This flip is just as ugly as the rest of them. If I had to design one, the front would have nothing but the year and name of issue. The name of the player is on the effing card. All the grade info, serial number, etc would be the back as it is ugly and technical and heavily detracts from the card, imo.

These are phones the SGC office uses when answering your calls.

Correct. That was a typo. It should say "I couldn't care less." Thanks for spotting it.

I don't particularly care what the flip looks like. I care more about accuracy and consistency in the grading process.

Default Uniformity

What I think gets lost in the "uniformity" complaints is that there won't be any uniformity if they don't market themselves better to the modern card market. If the company goes away you will have no one to complain about "uniformity" to, the decision will be made for you by fate.

If you really want SGC to stay around you should be happy they are making an attempt to grow their market.

The only thing that changed is the labels. The holders are still the same.

I don't fault SGC for trying to improve their product, but I do wonder how much the holders were holding them back from growing their market.

Here's the evolution of signed T206 cards encapsulated by SGC over the past 10 years:

Bridwell Portrait With Cap Auto SGC 40

Bridwell_No_Cap_SGC_Auth

Lajoie_Batting_SGC_A

[INSERT NEW SGC FLIP]

The frequent changes and inconsistency in overall presentation just since 2008 is really aggravating. If I had invested in a reholder at any of these stages, I'd still be stuck holding a bunch of outdated holders. Why would I invest in reholdering them all now when we can fully expect SGC to make additional tweaks at this pace going forward? The answer is, I won't.

But, I sure wish they were all in the same consistent holder. At some point I may just dump them all into PSA, where there has been a near identity of holder since the very beginning.
