They can be found at elitegrading.com and there is just one seller on ebay that has been putting up some of the most beautiful 50s - 70s baseball & football I've ever seen on a computer screen. The holders look like they were taken from Beckett.

I mean we're talking about Mint 9 1962 Tarkenton and just other beauties.

I contacted the seller on ebay and he said that they are legit and the company is attending shows in the south west.

BW1 or anyone else run across this company. What's their story?

To find on ebay (nothing there now and no longer able to do completed searches) is under elite grading for the title search.

Enjoy you collection!

Erik,

Comments/links:

The second sentence on elite grading's website has a misspelling. Not very impressive.

Upon conducting a search on eBay using (EGS,"elite grading") as the search terms, I could only find 31 items.

From these listings, it's pretty difficult to get a clear idea about EGS. The only two "high ticket" cards I could find were the following:

1986 Fleer Michael Jordan

1986 Topps Jerry Rice

Based on these two cards, I would rate the grading as average at best. The Jordan is off-centered on the reverse and yet has been given a 10+ rating for centering and the 1986 Rice is clearly off-centered (top-to-bottom) on the front.

the centering is NOT a 10+ on that dag on Jordan

In all fairness, the EGS 10 1986 Fleer Jordan IS a pretty stunning card!

It seems so odd to me that anyone would put a card of that caliber in that holder. Like wearing a tuxedo to Arby's...

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

I had judged Elite guilty by association (not the fairest thing in the world, but...) for the following reason. One of the large eBAY dealers that consistently offers PRO graded cards is now offering Elite graded cards. That was enough for me.
