Man I didn't think you could stump me on goofball grading companies. Congrats!

Not new, but if you dig around, not exactly high praises either. Here's an old thread http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=121462 and from CU https://forums.collectors.com/discus...raded-cards/p1

Default Isa

I have successfully graded cards in ISA holders with PSA and SGC.

That does not mean they are all good, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Even CSA slabbed legit cards on occasion. I had a 56 Clemente CSA 7 go to an SGC 84 and I even had a 53 Johnny Podres CSA 7 go to a PSA 7.5

I don’t remember the specific cards I had from ISA but I did crack a few out and get the same grade from the other guys. Good luck

8 years ago I saw an ad for ISA grading and it annoyed me so much that I wrote about it on my blog at the time. Here is a link.

They made 4 mistakes in the ad and I couldn't believe they would send the ad to print with these mistakes. Shortly after I posted it I saw another ad, it was the same ad, but with corrections to all 4 issues I had with it. Anyway, I'll never forget ISA grading for this reason. I don't know if they are still in business or not, but I did believe they were genuinely trying to start a reputable grading company. I would trust the cards in their holders are legit. Whether the grades are accurate or not I don't know, you'll have to decide that on your own.

I must admit that even in my blog post, I made a couple mistakes, but I wasn't advertising a new company that's whole business is to examine things for flaws.

You should presume that if it's in an ISA holder it couldn't get into a PSA or SGC holder, no matter how much the seller lies to the contrary.

Really? Not sticking up for ISA, I could care less, know nothing about them. Having said that, I bought an SBC graded T206 years ago for a dirt cheap price, the card was centered and looked great. The card crossed over to an SGC 96 at the National several years ago (Thanks SBassik). The lesson? Buy the freaking card, not the holder....

SBC was the direct predecessor of SGC. Possibly the first company to grade cards. Not a fly by night knockoff company.

Yes they were, but their graded cards are treated like they have the plague....

Also, having said that, I remember when GAI graded cards were blowing PSA cards out of the water when they first came out...
