MEET THE TEAM
John grew up in the 90s. As a 90s kid, he was there when Pokémon hit the scene and with thanks to his mother, grew a substantial card collection. He kept them in excellent condition… he clearly knew Pokémon was here to stay.
After John left school, he worked in Sales & Recruitment roles across several different industries. He stumbled upon his collection after rummaging through his old things and soon enough he was back in the Pokémon world.
John established Black Label Grading with his partner, Vicky, to help fellow trading card collectors, buyers and sellers access Beckett grading services easily.
Vicky studied Chemistry at University and then went on to work in Marketing. Yes, it was often the first topic of conversation in an interview and she will often argue the two are in fact linked. “Marketing is full of analysis… much like Chemistry”. You won’t be burning holes in your clothes or accidently making cyanide when managing a marketing department however!
Vicky shares the same vision as her husband and has ambitious plans for the company. Her background means all our communications are clear, transparent and customer centric.
