I've never heard of them until now. It's difficult to tell how they grade based on something like a 1989 Fleer baseball card...I'd have to see them grade something older and more challenging first.

Do you think the grading at least looks in line... The company is out of Arlington, Texas.... Close by to me.... anyways ... thx Oh yeah... They are a newer company started from a guy who wanted to give good customer service with accurate grading... I saw a 1930's Card graded from the same company that looked nice to me.. but was in a 4.8 holder.... It was a boxing card...

Bruceswar,

Both of the cards you have shown are fairly modern and really don't require very much grading expertise. I also noticed that the edge of the slot or space that holds the 1989 Fleer Randy Johnson in place has a somewhat uneven and jagged cut....something that would not be very conducive to keeping a card in top condition.

8.8, 5.8.....yuck! Are they doing what USA attempted to do when they first came out? 8.8 is a tad better than 8.5 I guess....but that's lame and gets too confusing. The grader must have eagle eys to rate something a decimal point higher or lower.
Too weird....all junk.

BSA? The Boy Scouts are now grading cards? Do they get a merit badge for that?

I thought it was Birmingham Small Arms. Some fine motorcycles came out of them. (sorry - I'll leave now - but seeing BSA really brought back memories).

Stick with the trusted companies. The main three big boys will give you the highest resell value among top collectors. You cannot be sure about the other new competitors. Please be careful in submitting to other grading companies other than SGC, PSA and BGS. I have had some bad times with the other other graders. Thanks and happy new year.

BSA= bovine serum albumin, the most abundant protein in most cell culture media. Often shows up as a nonspecific cross-reactive 80 kDa band on immunoblots if you don't wash your cells well before lysis. This info may help you someday.
