Beckett Grading Service has announced that effective March 1, there will be a rate increase for submissions.
This will be the first increase for the company since its introduction to the hobby world in 1999 and is attributed the rising costs of transportation and the products needed to grade your cards.
Beckett has previously eaten these fees, but they have gotten to be too much for the company to handle. However, they are minimal at just $1 per card. Shipping and insurance will also be raised minimally.
However, the other aspects of BGS's service will remain the same. Turnaround times will continue to be guaranteed, and there will be no changes made at this time to Autograph surcharges, Graded Card Reviews, Case Removal fees or JSA/BGS service fees according to Beckett's website.
BGS is encouraging customers to make submissions in the next six weeks to take advantage of the current price-scale.
