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?
