Beckett will once again be grading cards onsite and taking submissions at the 35th National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland, OH July 30th – August 3rd, 2014.
We will be offering the following services at our booth located in the corporate area:
Raw Card Review, Graded Card Review, Full grading & encapsulation (slabbing) onsite and accepting any submissions to be sent back to Dallas for regular turnaround times.
Our pricing is as follows:
Full encapsulation onsite:
1-9 cards ………. $30.00
10-29 cards …. $25.00
30-99 cards …. $22
100+ cards …… $18
Raw Card & Graded Card Review:
1-5 cards ………. $10
6-50 cards ……. $8
51-99 cards ….. $7
100+ cards ……. $6
These prices are per card. There will also be express services available based on current amount of submissions. Check with the booth to find out if you need an express service.
From a personal standpoint, I will offer some advice for people wanting to grade cards while at the show.
The National is by far our busiest show and we will have a large staff on hand. We see an enormous amount of cards during this week and deadlines are tight. Many times the grading staff is working until after 11pm every night. I suggest anyone wanting onsite grading to get to the Beckett booth as soon as you arrive at the show. Make the grading booth your first stop so you get in before other orders do. Cards are graded on a first come, first serve basis. The waits can be long and even be cut off some days when there are too many cards submitted.
As for dropping off your submission to go back to Dallas, these are not time sensitive at the show and do not have to be submitted first thing. There will be show specials for submissions going back to Dallas. Remember, the big advantage to dropping off cards to go back to Dallas is you save from having to pay for shipping and insurance to Dallas. We take care of that.
Hope to see everyone at the show!
