Certified Sports Guaranty plans to begin grading cards sometime early this winter. The new division of Certified Collectibles Group says it will be accepting submissions for most all sports cards including baseball, basketball, football, hockey, wrestling, racing, soccer, golf, tennis, MMA and multi-sport cards.
The company recently showed off the holders that have been developed. They’ll measure 3.15 x 5.30 inches.
Another day, another record for the Michael Jordan rookie card. REA sold one Sunday for $150,000. Now, this one being sold by Goldin Auctions owns the record for a PSA 10 (with the buyer’s premium factored in) and the auction won’t be over until this weekend.
The lone SGC 10 sold for $420,000 in August.
That impossibly rare 1916 M101-4 Altoona Tribune Babe Ruth card that sold for $342,000 at Robert Edward Auctions over the weekend belonged to a Pennsylvania woman who just discovered it not long ago.
Collectable says it sold all 1,000 shares of a PSA 8 1952 Bowman Mickey Mantle card in three minutes Tuesday morning.
It’s one of 114 at that grade with 21 higher. Shares were priced at $15 and 104 people bought in.
The company does business on the app it rolled out awhile back but a desktop version is coming in 2021.
