I'm praying they'll recognise Pokemon's Base 2000 set ~

But will they grade boxing and other sports cards?

Seems like just Pokemon and MTG, for the time being ~

I haven’t seen the back of the flip yet, but the front doesn’t appear to have a serial number for registry sets. If MTG and Pokémon cards have such, this is a huge error on CGC’s part.

Hopefully Wacky Packs will be coming soon.

Pause the video at 0:50, you can see the serial number.

Too bad they're "collectible card games" and I thus treated them like you would expect a 12 year old to treat any other game.  Literally none of my early Magic cards would grade higher than a 7 I imagine.

According to the pricing chart, “cards may be a mix of different types/games. This makes me think they WILL grade other types of cards besides MTG or Pokémon. What I’m curious about is whether they can encapsulate thicker cards, like 100pt thick or thicker.

I was kind of hoping CGC wouldn't adopt the 50 card bulk minimum requirement that the big two card graders had.

That would have made them way more competitive and I probably would have taken a chance with it.

$8 a card without that requirement would have been the power move imo.

I too am curious about this as others have mentioned. What all type of cards may be submitted ? What are the size restrictions? Small vintage. Tall or Wide? Also how well the market will pay for these. Even now the market varies widely for each type ( sport, non sport, vintage, playing) and which service is used (BGS & PSA ).

    I had too hoped they wouldn't just charge along the same lines as others considering they are new to cards and unproven as far as return on value. They also have not stated how they will treat restored, trimmed, or counterfeit cards.

I do think adding a fee for error cards is excessive. They definitely should have a registry as PSA offers this and not having one at release is a big deterrent considering they have it for the comics. 

Although I forsee them adding Signature Series and Special Labels before they add most of these things we have already mentioned being issues as like the fee for an error card they can make more money quicker.

Yeah. Was disappointed at the requirement. How does the single card compare to psa ? Don't wanna make an account just to check price
