Think you can grade sports cards?

BGS is on the lookout for industry’s best grader at 2015 Summit

Think you have an exceptional eye for sharp corners, perfect centering and unblemished sports card surfaces? You’ll have the chance to prove it at this year’s Industry Summit.

Beckett Grading Services has agreed to sponsor the BGS World Championship of Grading: Professional Division at the 2015 Industry Summit trade conference, held March 15-18 at Tuscany Suites in Las Vegas.

Summit registrants from every class of trade – including retailers, distributors, licensors, manufacturers and service providers – will have the opportunity to grade a small sampling of sports cards during Welcome Ceremonies on Sunday, March 15. Industry professionals with the highest success rate in the preliminary round will then compete for the title of BGS World Champion of Grading during the Tuesday, March 15, business session.

“I am really excited about the World Championship of Grading event. There are a lot of quality hobby experts at the Summit so I am interested in seeing how good they are grading cards,’’ said Jeromy Murray, BGS Director. “This is also a great test run for what we have planned for collectors at The National Convention this year! Who knows, maybe we can find the next BGS Grader in Vegas.”

The completion is open to all Summit attendees, other than anyone employed by a grading service or any Beckett Media employee.
