Default Solution to Slab Cracking Issues (With a Side Benefit) for SGC/PSA

Posted By: Matt

What if when PSA/SGC grades a card, they take scans of it as well. Then, when you look up a cert#, you can see the scans and make sure it matches the card currently in the slab. The fringe benefit is that users would no longer have to scan in images for their registry sets. It would also provide the grading companies with exemplars for future grading of the same issue, which would be quite useful on rare issues.

For SGC, I know currently SGC has no online cert lookup (which I really think they should change) but it would work the same an SGC lookup does now - email Michael and he can respond with the info.

As far as the grading companies' servers and the huge amount of image files, storage space is incredibly cheap and the grading companies are hosting all the registry images anyway.

I know some have suggested a hologram on all 4 edges of the slab, I would suggest that is both unattractive and also probably could be steamed off somehow.

Thoughts?

Default Solution to Slab Cracking Issues (With a Side Benefit) for SGC/PSA

Posted By: Frank Wakefield

My only slab cracking issues were two: 1- don't damage the card when I'm cracking the slab. and 2- don't allow plastic shards to fly into my eyes.

I have it down to a system now. But my solutions don't seem to match up with yours above.

That's not a bad idea but keep in mind PSA has graded over 10 million cards
and SGC probably a couple million as well. It may be a costly (to the consumer)solution if either/both implemented it.

Frank - I meant to prevent scammers - not to help us crack them without putting an eye out

Jay - I'm not sure what expense there is. The time it takes to take a scan? I would imagine that they could easily have it setup to work with their grading software, and as I mentioned, the image hosting costs would be negligible.
