I was thinking for resale value; I guess BCCG is a bad idea.

Turnaround time variable.
Payment taken in trade or partial trade by arrangement.

I am not talking about stuff that I would obviously send to PSA {like mantle, mays, clemente, aaron, etc} One upside to Bccg is obviously it would eliminate any question about authenticity and altered.
It would? NOT.

BCCG is good for buyers (if they know what to look for) not sellers.

I disagree. I have seen many sellers who claim it was "graded a "6" or "7" or higher and mention nothing about how BCCG grades.

I said it back a while ago, that sellers will love this as there are still many novice collectors out there and new collectors coming to the hobby everyday.

"Those two Beckett services are BVG and BGS only. A third Beckett service, BCCG, attempts to capitalize on the well-known numerical grading scale collectors are familiar with (1 through 10) as a way to make it appear to novice collectors that the card is in nicer condition than it actually is."

Exactly. And as a buyer with knowledge you can easily win the argument. Of course if you leave out the knowledge part of my answer yours is correct. Nothing like taking something out of context.

Although I didn't acknowledge your (If they know what to look for) I still found that confusing, as most, that I have seen anyways, are overpriced to begin with based on the BCCG grade.

I suppose some are out there, (I try not to even give these BCCG graded cards a second look), that are priced fair or on the cheap side, from honest sellers, but from what I have noticed, the sellers are trying to pass off a BCCG graded 8,9, or 10 as if that would be the same grade PSA or SGC would also grade the card at.

Want a slam dunk grade bump?

Cross from PSA to BCCG

Turn around time should not be a problem.

There is even an E-Bay warning about BCCG graded cards. It's too bad this isn't listed/shown with all BCCG cards that come up for auction.

http://www.ebay.com/gds/The-BCCG-gra...5139486/g.html

I use to somewhat speak positively/strong for Beckett graded cards but when they "Knowingly" started this service, they quickly fell out of favor with me.

In my opinion, not that they likely care, they should do away with this service while they are still afloat.

What do you think, Frank, a 8, 9 or 10?

I don't think Beckett is going anywhere as they are king with the new shiny cards by a mile.

I have never understood the hate for BCCG cards because as long as you can read you should be OK. The grade is clearly printed on the label in big letters.
