Bases Loaded Sports Collectibles will host Charles Stabile, Northeast regional sales manager from Beckett Grading Services, from 2 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, at the store, located at 794 French Road, Cheektowaga.
Beckett Grading Services provides collectors with the most thorough, consistent and accurate grading efforts available in the industry. Your BGS-graded cards will be returned in a unique, protective cardholder. Beckett uses an easy-to-understand one- to 10-point grading scale to rate sports cards, which are graded on four key categories: Centering, corners, edges and surface. Grades from each of these key categories will be considered in determining your card’s final overall grade. Beckett also grades non-sports cards, photos, magazines, pocket schedules, gaming cards and tickets.
Additionally, for every 10 cards submitted during the Beckett grading event, customers will be entered into a contest to win an autographed 8 x 10 photo of Bill Polian, Andre Reed or Marv Levy.
Drop-offs for grading are currently being accepted at Bases Loaded Sports Collectibles for those who can’t make it Oct. 28-29.
