View Full Version : Graded cards with UV Protection

10-12-2017, 12:06 PM
Without stirring up any debate over preferences or resale values of PSA, SGC, and BVG, I simply wanted to ask if any or all of them are in cases which provide UV protection. I seem to recall BVG having mentioned it, though I can't find it on their site now, but neither PSA nor SGC make any mention of it, at least that I could find.

You guys know?

I'm pretty sure PSA & SGC don't have any sort of UV protection added into their slabs.

Honestly, I'd treat all slabs as being untreated. Use additional UV protection and limit exposure to natural light & artifical lighting outside of LEDs.

Unless they state otherwise, I would assume no. I know Beckett didn't, and said the slabs would cost more if they did.

I just keep my graded cards in a closet and apply sunscreen frequently to my raw cards. That seems to work just fine.

I'm not certain of the answer, but I've seen plenty of slabbed cards on display that have faded- cards and flips. Be cautious displaying cards.
