Default GMA Grading.. -opinions? ( $3.00 a card)

I figure someone here knows all the back story on this company...ie. who the owners are..why they forming the company etc.

I would think that if an upstart company gained major market share..their rates would rise as time goes by ,,

People pay for the sealed card and an opinion..that could be worth 3 bucks....but who knows..

I figure i start this thread..and someone does a google search..this thread will show up as a resource.....dont say i didnt contribute anything to the hobby......nice..card

Save your money and put them in a toploader or grade in bulk with PSA. I would never expect a premium to be paid for a GMA graded card.

All these second tier companies overgrade IMO.

I've noticed the same thing. Seems like 9s are guaranteed so long as a crocodile didn't floss with your card.

Do you believe there is any room for another grading company?

Someone would need to offer a distinct advantage, either in terms of a technological advancement, or perhaps very well-known and respected graders.

I have not used them but would have no problem in using them. The grading companies each have their own advantages. PSA has the sheeple that highly overpay for their holders. Beckett has the bomb proof slabs. SGC has the nicest looking slabs and do the best in actually grading the card. GMA is a great option for those that are collectors and couldn't care less about resale value but want their cards protected in a slab. They also offer much better deals with large bulk submissions and will even do custom flips.

I have seriously considered them for PC cards I plan on keeping. I just like the looks of cards in SGC slabs too much for PC cards. I use PSA if reselling and see no real reason to ever use Beckett.

Or how about one with standards that will not change, and one that guarantees accuracy the first time. A clear description of the process, and having multiple graders look at the card so that reviews are not necessary or even possible. That way a collector can sell a card graded a 7 confident that someone with more pull can't get it bumped to a 7.5 or an 8.

Do people really stay up late at night worrying about such matters?
