I received my GA 8 1977 Topps Steve Carlton. Good holder. Black borders with corner cut outs display the card smartly. Upper part of the holder is translucent with a silver label for a modern look. It's wafer thin, so it lacked the sturdy yet compact feel of a SGC holder. Clearly better than Beckett's or PSA's holder. Left a favorable impression. I will be crossing over the card to the top holder -- SGC. When I get around to crossing over I will report on the results.

Old, dense-headed hammers are cool. Best nail pounders.

Daniel, you did a tad better than I, but overall we got amazingly similar results...mine are for '68 baseball


12% of my PSA-8's got a upgrade to 92's (your result was 7%)
47% of my PSA-8's went to 88's (your result was 57%)
41% of my PSA-8's would have gone down (your result was 36%)

So in both our cases, roughly 60% of our PSA-8's crossed to an equal or greater SGC grade/ 40% did not.

Our results on PSA-7's were also very similar...8/11 (73%) of mind crossed to an equal or higher grade...3/11 (27%) did not...you got 75% / 25%

My results for BGS graded cards were also very positive -- one 7.5 went to a 92 and one 8 went to a 92.
