Default Question about Graded cards

Posted By: Tony

Does anyone know what level of fraud there is in slabbed cards? By that, I am not referring to certain morally bankrupt companies that will grade a card an 9 when it has been trimmed 1/8th of an inch, but rather if people are cracking open PSA or SGC holders and replacing the cards? I always feel a bit trepidatious when going after high end cards even if they're slabbed. Opinions?

Default Question about Graded cards

Posted By: Trevor Hocking

The first thing you need to remember, is that slabbed cards are just someone else's opinion. That's a person just like you and me. Which means there's bound to be a mistake or even fraud, wether it comes from the grading companies or from the owner of the card.
Second, Always look at the slabbed card you are buying as if it was raw! This is an important thing to do that so many people have forgot about. Make sure you measure and examine the card. I think way to many people put a Hugh amount of trust in someone else's opinion about your card.
Third, I do think that if it wasn't for grading companies the card industries would not be were it is today, but you still need to use good judgment because there will also was be someone trying to pull a fast one.
Happy Collecting!
