Default BVS Slabs

Posted By: Jim Dale

I see the $9 - 10 day turn around on Beckett grading is available. I like their slabs; they are my preference for modern cards too (BGS). Does anyone know are they good at breaking cards out of existing SGC/PSA slabs or no?

PS...I really am not concerned about the "value" equation as much as its my collection and sticking with me for a while.

YES, BVG does/will break out PSA/SGC slabs for you to re-slab in the BVG. They charge an extra $2 per card to break the old slab. I too love the BVG slabs.

Hi Jim,

Yes, we are able to crack any other company's holders. This includes PSA, SGC & GAI as well as any of the lesser known companies you may want removed from their old holders. There are only a few people approved to do so, and all have had nearly 10 years' experience (original BGS employees since 1999), so you can rest easy that they are careful! There are specific methods that work best on each different company's type of slab. The cracking fee is $3 per card.

If you simply want cards cracked and regraded under BGS/BVG, you would just pay the $9 special grading fee for 10-day service and the $3 cracking fee. If you have minimum grades in mind, there would be a review fee first for the card to be reviewed and pre-graded in the slab before cracking and official grading.

If you have any more questions on this, please shoot us an email at grading@beckett.com, call 972.448.9188, or check out www.beckett.com/grading.

Thanks!
Mark Anderson, Director
Beckett Grading Services

Mark:

Will Beckett be grading on-site at this year's National and what will the grading costs be? Also, will your oversized holders definitely be available by then?

Thanks

Hi Phil,

Yes, we will once again be grading at the National. We haven't determined the pricing yet, but we will be offering regular onsite slabbing, raw card review, graded card review, and take-home submissions. JSA will also be there, so we can take in JSA/BGS autograph orders as well.

One hint, look around for special offers. For those of you taking advantage of our free trial issue of Graded Card Investor (see the Net54 post), I am including a coupon sheet for BGS/BVG, and if I recall correctly, I included one grading coupon specifically for the National Convention.

Thanks!
Mark

Sorry Phil - forgot the second half of your question.

Our new large holders are being produced right now. I don't have an official launch date yet, but I would hope they would be done and in Dallas by the end of June. I'm very excited about these - they are absolutely massive, holding items up to about 9" x 11.5" and up to 1/4" thick. They are sonically sealed as our standard slabs, and as far as I know, the only large holders that have ever been fully sealed (CGC comics holders, for instance, use a rivet/post design and can be pried apart, etc.). I can't imagine dealers hauling thousands of these around to shows, but I think they look really sharp.

I'll try to get a sample scan or two posted on this thread later today if I have time (leaving on vacation shortly for a week).

Mark

It is interesting to see the strategy. Some companies charge less for crossovers some charge more. I'm not saying one is better than the other, just noting that the difference is interesting

Interesting BVS charges $3 per crackout that they do. Do the other grades do this as well? I don't think I've ever sent anything in except raw cards...other than one time to SGC where in fact they did crack something out. I don't remember being charged for that, but I think it was at the $50 level or something and maybe it just didn't apply at that point?

Mr Anderson,
Would you possibly have an idea when you will be set up to slab the 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 baseball hof postcards. I have cards at jsa since November 07. I have tried to reach Jeremy at BGS on several occasions and have yet to get a call back. Thanks

Dave,

SGC has not charged me for cracking cards out of PSA holders, no matter what the pricing level.
