Beckett Grading Services

Beckett Grading Services was on-hand at the 31st National Sports Collectors Convention. The National is the only show at which Beckett grades cards at the show itself (the company exhibits at many shows throughout the year and takes grading submissions but grades those cards back at it's headquarters). The company allowed us to photograph the encapsulation process. This is the portion of the process where the card gets "slabbed" and takes places once the card has already been graded. Follow along via the gallery below (captions appear by placing the cursor over the image).
