UK Graders Announcement

Post by ukgraders »

Hi everyone

We would like to just inform everybody that UK Graders will no longer be U grading Vintage carded figures or Baggies.
I know we did have rules when it came to U grading items anyway, so it is time to make the decision to stop U grading, However we will still U grade modern items due to mass production and we will also U grade Mailers i.e plain white box mailers and Brown Sears Mailers ect but the baggies inside will not be U graded.
This is with immediate effect on any orders being placed from 27-02-2015 but we will honour any orders that we currently have in for grading if they meet the criteria.

Could people please share this information with other forums.

Steve.

That's excellent news Steve, I think we all appreciate you and AFA are running a business but it's important to not always put money before the good of the hobby. I think it will pay dividends in the long run for you considering some of the U-graded cardbacks I've seen floating around that could easily have scored 80+ as a graded MOC.
