Not All Grading Companies Are Created Equal

Beware of Second Rate and Off-Brand Services

  • July 19, 2019

Miscellaneous graded cardsBut It Is Graded We receive dozens of inquiries for evaluating collections every week and many of them include collections with cards that are not graded by the "Big-3."  By the "Big-3," we mean Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), Sportscard Guaranty (SGC) and Beckett Grading Service (BGS and BVG).  There are dozens of "other" grading companies and some of them are better than others.  Some should be embarrassed to even suggest that they are "grading" cards. One of the most

The Herr's Potato Chip Collection

Featuring The 1952 Topps Baseball Set

We have seen cards stored in all types of places. From garbage bags, to old shoe boxes, to even inside of an early 1900's Bible. And now we can add a new place to the list - potato chips boxes. What? Don't worry, I'll explain in a little bit.

Every individual or family has their

Once we got settled back in, we will do a full review of how the National went, along with some of our exciting purchases. But for now, we wanted to share this story with you, which happened right before we left for Chicago! For those of you who are not familiar

1951 Bowman #1This week, we are proud to offer an extremely well centered example of Whitey Ford's rookie card from the 1951 Bowman set. This card is graded SGC 84 NM, and presents beautifully inside the black encapsulation. The card is free of any creases or staining, while still holding tremendous registration & color - pretty impressive for a card that's over 60 years old! Ford spent his entire career in pinstripes, pitching the Yankees to six World Series Championships, while also earning Cy Young honors along the way.

1966 Bazooka Mickey MantleRobert Burns was a poet, an artist with words. Ken Burns is a documentary film producer, with the great Baseball chronicle earning him high praise. Bob Burns, a 1930’s and 40’s actor and musician from Arkansas, also has had a profound impact on baseball, more specifically on vintage baseball cards. Bob Burns, you see, invented a silly musical instrument from some pieces of pipe and a funnel (yes, he actually played it!), and called it a Bazooka. The military nicknamed an antitank weapon the bazooka in
