Default Whats the "safest" grading company???

I know we have had many threads about whats the best Grading company to use, BUT...staying in the theme of all this fraud info news posted recently. If your buying a "high priced card (all relative) what would grading company would you feel most comfortable that it was Graded by???

Weather its an issue of a fake slab, a card that's given a grade BUT should of been "altered, or a cracked slab and another card put in its place.

Whats the safest company to buy a high end card from?

Taking preference and resale value out of the equation, and only considering the things you'd mentioned, I'd probably say BVG... Those slabs are hardcore, I can't imagine cracking them to swap in another card, would be an easy task..

I'd go with BVG if you don't care about resale. Those things almost kill you when trying to crack one. Many people have lost eyes with those cases.

I have had a shard from a cracked BGS slab enter my hand. It hurt.

A holder that looked as nice as SGC, was as tamper resistant as BVG, and had the resale value of PSA would be nice.

Since I can't have it all, I voted for BVG.

Surprised by the BVG love. I don't disagree. I just expected an SGC slam dunk.

Shocking that the company whose cards seemingly sell for the most money are only garnering 2+% of the vote. What's wrong with that picture?

Just jumped to 4.7%. Nevertheless, not a lot of confidence with the #1 company.

#1?... IMO PSA could not pour piss out of a boot with directions on the heel. SGC is by far and way the best of them. Customer service is excellent, turn around time is reasonable, and the black mat makes even terribly faded cards pop.

True, but until SGC figures out how to manage their population reports and registry better, PSA will always lead in that department. I prefer SGC over PSA with prewar stuff, but let's face it, people often buy PSA because of their more aesthetically pleasing registry. I'm floored that SGC has yet to hire someone to do a complete overhaul of that portion of their website. Shocking really...
