Our Partnerships

Who We Work With

Black Label Grading partners with three renowned entities in the collectibles industry: Beckett Grading Services (BGS), Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) and Sportscard Guaranty Company (SGC). All three companies are US-based and each offers its own distinctive grading experience.

We also facilitate PSA grading and are on route to becoming a PSA dealer.

Beckett Grading Services (BGS)

Beckett has been a leading force in the collectibles industry since 1979, marking over 30 years of exceptional service. Initially publishing collectible price guidebooks and magazines, they soon also added web commerce and grading (BGS) services to their portfolio.

Beckett Grading Services provide card and collectible enthusiasts from across the globe world class authentication and grading services.

We first established our relationship with BGS in 2020, during the peak of the pandemic. BLG wanted to provide easy access to Beckett’s card grading services, a first at this time.

Today, our strong alliance with BGS persists, and we consistently highlight its pivotal role in the collectibles sphere.

Certified Guaranty Company (CGC)

CGC stands as a paragon in the realm of card grading and authentication, renowned for for their expertise and innovation in the industry.

Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA)

As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the services we offer at Black Label Grading, we’re excited to introduce an additional option for our clients: facilitating submissions to PSA. While we work towards achieving official dealer status with PSA through meeting submission quotas, we’re currently offering a middleman service to help you navigate the submission process with ease.

This service is built on our extensive experience in the grading industry, backed by years of successful submissions to giants like Beckett and CGC. Our aim is to provide a seamless experience for those looking to submit to all three major grading companies, making Black Label Grading a comprehensive hub for collectible grading services.

Sportscard Guaranty Company (CGC)

SGC started on a small scale in 1998 and experienced a significant boom in 2020 when the pandemic heightened the demand for sports and gaming card grading to an all-time high. The pandemic revitalized the hobby, leading to rapid growth for SGC as they expanded to meet the surge in demand. With over 24 years of experience in the trading card collectors’ market, SGC’s unique slab design features an all-black surround that makes the cards stand out and enhances their visual appeal.

Black Label Grading has established a partnership with SGC, becoming the exclusive partner in the UK and EU to offer competitive pricing.
