This site was part of Basketball Card Guy's elaborate 2021 April Fools Joke! We've kept it online so you can continue to enjoy it now that April Fools day is over. We all wish the Grading Company actually existed, and maybe someday something like it will. For now you can close this window and enjoy the videos and details on the page!

Have a card that's already graded by PSA, BGS, CSA, HGA, KLM, PTO or GGG? Simply scan the card in its existing grading case and we'll see if we think it deserves a better grade. And if it's already received a "10" we can still give it a bump!
Inspired by Spinal Tap, we feel the best cards should go beyond a 10, that's why our top grade is an 11.
We lead the industry with 6 sub-grades so you can see exactly why your card is graded like it is.
The long-time standards including how well centered the card is, as well as the condition of the corners, edges, and front/back of the card.
Beyond surface, we look to see how well the color of your card matches to the day it was printed.
Using deep knowledge of the card's materials and current grade we can predict the future of your card.
It's no accident that we are the self-proclaimed fastest growing grading card company.
I was always nervous about sending my cards in to a grading company. Grading Co. takes away the worry by letting me keep possession of my cards the whole time.
I hated the grades I got from the established grading companies. With Grading Company's UP-Grade feature, I can just pay for a higher grade when I feel like my card deserves it.
The App is so easy to use. I just take a photo of my card and instantly find out the grade. No more waiting months or even a year, I get my grades in seconds with Grading Co.

We've gone beyond standard qualifiers like OC and ST, as we realize that it's important to point out certain things about the card to help newbie collectors.
"BC" stands for "Base Card". This distinction is given to cards that have more expensive parallels, so that people realize the one you have is the cheapest one they can get.
"DTG" stands for "Dumb to Grade". A card encased with this distinction cost our customer more to grade than it's now worth.
This distinction is reserved for cards that were the only ones seen on ebay at a particular point in time. It brings no extra value to the card, but people love using this term on ebay so we decided to include it on our cases.
You don't want someone else touching your cards. So we send the case to you for easy assembly.
Our patent pending self-encasing kits come to you via overnight mail. Each kit inlcudes a case, your printed label and the encasement bag.
To prepare, simply boil 2 quarts of water on a stove. Then take the special case we provided, place it in the provided bag. Place the bag and case into the water for 3 minutes. Then remove.
Allow the case to dry and harden for 15 minutes. Once this process is completed your card will be forever sealed in the protective case.
