Grading and authentication company SGC is kicking off the next chapter in its history at the National Sports Collectors Convention this week with a presence that’s part submission center and part mini-museum.
The company is celebrating its 20th anniversary with an exhibit featuring items from some of the hobby’s best sports collections, on loan for the show. The exhibit will be at booth #143, where the company will also be showcasing its new uniform authentication service.
The company’s second booth (#505) will be accepting item submissions and offering its card-grading and autograph-authentication services. Show-goers will also be able to receive a 10 percent discount for their next online submission with email signup at the show.
“We are very excited to showcase our new uniform authentication division as well as bring to light some of the rarest and most exclusive items at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention,” said SGC CEO Dave Forman. “Truly ‘a Cooperstown in Cleveland’.”
SGC is also expected to show off its new trading card holders, which will reflect their recent decision to move to a 1-10 grading scale, rather than their current 100-point system. A new 9.5 grade will also be added.
SGC will also be giving away free promotional items to the first 50 people to capture a photo with the company’s anniversary display, tag SGC on social media, and use the hashtag #SGC20.
