I have never seen this before either, but I scanned the QR code and it pointed me here

it's basically another version of a PWCC-HE sticker

I don't get it? So basically I got to send my cards to these guys?? Can't I just buy these stickers and put them on myself?? I got a better eye than most as to which of my own cards are high-end for the grade.

Anyway, that is hilarious. I wonder is PWCC patented their high-end sticker designation and would like a word with these guys?

PS- The submit link and the learn more link doesn't work. Im willing to bet that is the Ebay sellers company, and the Mantle the guy is selling is the first one with the sticker. In my opinion, he should have picked a better specimen to be the guinea pig, because they top right corner is what got it the '5'. Hell, all the corners look a little suspect, and there is a black smudge dot or something in the top border. I don't think it's high end at all.

I guess it's big in coin collecting. That have something called the CAC sticker (comes in green and gold) which signifies high end coins for the grade. Not sure that cards actually need the service either.
I think the "company" doing this is better off renaming the service to something non-generic.

According to their website:

" Find solace in owning a card garnished with our Purple Label Sticker! A stickered card has been reviewed by us, after the Third Party Grading process.
It possesses STRONG QUALITIES in comparison to other cards with the same assigned grade.
Example: In our opinion, your card graded "Near Mint 7" looks much nicer than other "Near Mint 7" examples. "

Another reason to love graded cards. Coming soon , more colored stickers for equally inane reasons. Maybe a frowny face emoji sticker for those cards that didn't grade high as expected! Time to collect a purple sticker registry!!!

Greg Marmalard: But the cards have already been graded.
Dean Vernon Wormer: They are? Well, as of this moment, they're DOUBLE SECRET GRADED!

Are there colored stickers for lesser graded cards. Like a 7 that really should've been a 6. Or are we just pumping up cards with these purple stickers which really mean nothing?
