SARASOTA, Fla. — The lead sports card graders from Certified Sports Guaranty™ (CSG™), Andy Broome and Westin Reeves, will attend the Sport Card Expo Virtual Edition taking place online Nov. 21-22.
Broome and Reeves will be on the main stage on Saturday, Nov. 21 from 3 to 3:45 p.m. EDT to share information and answer questions about CSG’s soon-to-launch sports card authentication, grading and encapsulation services.
They will also be available to chat at the CSG virtual booth on Saturday, Nov. 21, from 11 a.m. to noon EDT and from 4 to 5 p.m. EDT, and on Sunday, Nov. 22 from 11 a.m. to noon EDT.
CSG is the latest company to be formed by the Certified Collectibles Group® (CCG®), which also includes the world’s largest and leading grading services for coins, paper money, comic books and related collectibles. Since 1987, the CCG companies have certified nearly 60 million collectibles with a combined fair market value of more than $30 billion.
Just as with CCG’s other categories, CSG boasts of world-class expertise, advanced technology, innovation and operational excellence.
More than any other third-party sports card grading service, CSG will use advanced authentication and grading technology to make the certification process more precise and efficient. Artificial intelligence (AI) will help to automate many of the more time-consuming aspects of grading, and the CSG graders will be equipped with forensic devices that reveal alterations and hidden details through ultra-microscopic inspections as well as non-destructive ink and paper analysis.
The CSG holder and label will also be game-changers in the industry. The holder is sleek and strong, offering superior display and protection. The label is bold and clear, providing a detailed description of the card, its grade, its unique CSG certification number and a QR code to facilitate quick verification. Both the CSG holder and label include extensive security features to prevent against tampering and counterfeiting.
Collectors will also appreciate that the CSG Guarantee of authenticity and grade will be the strongest of any third-party sports card grading service.
