Don't get me wrong, I like the idea. I just can't see PSA ever going to it. Too much exposure.

I'd like to see just what a GRADER has to go thru to become a grader.


What are the requirements to be a PSA grader? One question...Are you breathing on your own?

I have been eyeballing cards for 25 years!! Does that qualify me to be at least a low level grader at PSA or SGC or would they higher me and have some snot nosed 22 year old teach me how?


Amen, brother! I'm in the same boat. I started collecting in 1986. Been doing this for 26 years now. I would put my grading skills up against anyone at PSA, SGC or Beckett.

The low end is the low end and both examples are "POOR". The fact that the asking price differential between the 2 is almost 2K speaks volumes as to what the respective owners think of the cards. Is grading supposed to be a "safety net" for "victims" or is it to provide an objective opinion, based on guideleines, on each item presented?
