I had read on other boards that SGC was thinking about adding more half grades to their grading scale than they have now (20=1.5, 70=5.5, 86=7.5, 92=8.5).

It looks like they have started implementing the new grades - I just looked at the pop reports today, and I noticed the addition of the 35 grade(2.5).

So, are we to assume that the grades of 45 (3.5), 55 (4.5), and 82 (6.5) will be added too?

I won a 1909 E92 Dockmans Gum card in the Sterling Auction that closed last night. When I went to look up the pop report for that issue, there is a column for the grade "35"...with zero cards graded for that grade.

I also had a BIN yesterday for a 1936 World Wide Gum card, and the "35" shows up in the pop report for that issue too.

I haven't looked at any post-WW2 pop reports yet - I just assumed that they have the 35 grade there too...

Yea this is really irritating..... The exact same thing that PSA did in order to have a huge influx of "regrade" at a nominal charge of course. (The more things cahnge - The more they stay the same)

I think this is correcting a mistake.I think they should have always had these 1/2 grades.

I agree I dont think this is like the PSA money grab where Joe O many times said they would never be half grades. Then they do it and oh yea send in your cards our way and we will charge you for a chance to upgrade, lol.

I just think the SGC scale needed a little tune up and adding the remaining grades would do just that.

I dont think folks with stacks on SGC 30's are going to rush out to resub for a bump any time soon. I have lots at that grade and dont plan to send any in. The few that would get sent in are likely t206 wagner/plank, 52 mantle would be worth it but thats all I see.

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be Joe O.'s lips moving.

Bend over, collectors. It's your turn to sacrifice and pay your fair share.

I wish that SGC would either quell the rumors about the 1/2 grades or affirm that they r going to do that.I PMed Earl but didnt get a reply.I have the Aaron rookie that i would take off the auction block if i knew the 1/2 grades were coming.

SGC has not implemented new half grades at this time. The grade column in question that appeared on the Population Report was due to a computer glitch. If new grades are to be added in the future, we will make the information available to our customers and on our website at that time.
Thank you for your continued support of SGC!

Thanks for the response Earl!

I would have expected SGC to announce it first if they were making any changes like that. Sorry for jumping the gun...
