Actually, these were just a few things that were done for fun. In reality, we asked Kevin Saucier, who runs this site, to perform every type of security test he could think of to BGS slabs. You wouldn’t believe some of the things attempted!

We cannot release the exact methods as they were successful in breaking into some slabs by other grading companies, and neither Beckett nor Mr. Saucier will divulge any information that could be used to scam hobbyists.

We hope to begin including articles on how to detect card alterations by Mr. Saucier in future issues of The Report Card. Subscribe to the free email newsletter now, and in the meantime, enjoy checking out Kevin’s great site.

What would happen if a bgs slabbed card had an altercation with a jackhammer?

They were so confident they used a 1985 Graded Dave Kingman card.

Oddly enough, the only opponent strong enough to damage a BGS case has been the postal service, as they’ve on several occasions managed to deliver my cases chipped and cracked, from both individual sellers and directly from Beckett.

Beckett should get with the Blendtec guys to show what it takes to “compromise” a BGS slab.

It sucks to be Dave Kingman.

Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation :) Anyway … nice blog to visit.

well with the quality of the plastic that is used in protecting the cards I will not waste my time in destroying my cards to see how far it takes to destroy the plastic because I take pride in all my cards I grade
