I really don't mind the new look.. it's very up to date, breaking a tradional uniform approach. I'm just used to the green labels, I thought it made the card and holder pop, but the new look, black on black will do well imo. This combo made 1960s muscle cars very popular as well as mean & tough looking.

Here's my take on the new SGC flips.

Why get rid of the iconic green slabs? Literally millions of SGC flips are in people's collections with the iconic green. Green was (is?) their identity. Throwing in a black label (and a silver and gold in higher levels) will stick out like a sore thumb in everyone's green SGC collection. Uniformity is important to a lot of collectors...and SGC has a lot of loyal collectors.

Why such massive numbering? It's as if the designer got sick of using their reading glass and said screw it, let's make the font as big as possible. I'm all for using the single digit grading, but the numbering is comically big. All your eye goes to right away when you see the new slabs is that giant number. Is that really what you want people to see? Like look, it's a giant 2!

My opinion. Go back to iconic green in the grades lower than a 6. Go silver labels for 7-8, and gold labels for 9-10. And lower the font size of the number grade.

Default what he said......

" If I had to design one, the front would have nothing but the year and name of issue. The name of the player is on the effing card. All the grade info, serial number, etc would be the back as it is ugly and technical and heavily detracts from the card, imo."

I asked SGC early on about this in like 1995(?). I was summarily brushed off. I agree x 100 with Conor. I will say as someone who is a bit OCD and a bit OMG - I would prefer the uniformity in my early sets that would be upheld by the old label. Single types wouldn't as much of a problem. My disability not so bad that I will ever re-holder my cards. SGC is my grader of choice (I have graded and ungraded cards) so I guess I have to take the good with the bad. The number does feel a bit over pronounced as I don't think the label should be the star at any point.

I agree with just about all of the negative comments, but Thromdog's giant phone post was the funniest.

What I hope is that the "new" SGC grades any hand cut cards as A (auth). If it's a Zeenut without the coupon removed then it's a card that can have a numeric grade. If it's a strip card or card with a coupon removed, then it gets the A grade.

ARE YOU LISTENING SGC???

Some issues don't have names on the card such as the '48, 50, and 53 bowman sets. There are probably others. I would think people would like the grade of the card to be on the front. Especially at a card show, I wouldn't want to ask the dealer what the grade of a card is every time I see something I'm interested in. Dealers get busy at times assisting other customers and it's easier to just scan through their table knowing what the grade is rather than wondering if it's graded "A" or has a numerical grade. I wouldn't want to wait half an hour for the dealer to finally get to me and then realizing the card is altered.

For what it's worth, I like the green border on the SGC flips better. Wished it didn't have the perforation though. I agree with everyone that the grade is way too large a font.

I suppose this is a good point for the .00001% of all card transactions that happen at shows.
