The Verdict Is In…

Well, unless someone from Beckett takes the initiative and contacts me directly (good luck, I know), my verdict is in–I tired to be diplomatic, I tried to keep an open mind, and I still appreciate the thankless job that Eric has done–but the new site sucks...

Beckett.com – Early Reviews…Not So Good

You may have heard that the new Beckett.com launched this week.  You might also have heard that early reviews have not been positive.  In fact, a posting on their blog has generated 93 responses–which range from complaints, to thanks from other site operators...

Beckett (Still) Doesn’t Get It

**UPDATE**I just went to check out the video on YouTube, and noticed that it has been ranked 1.5 stars out of 5 (6 ratings), and there have been numerous negative comments on it.  You can check them out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RKSBRY8ocM. So, I finally got...

Beckett…What Can I Say?

More Beckett Grief!

OK, to be fair, the grief this time is more directed towards Upper Deck–another common source of grief in the hobby, from what I can tell.  But The Card Blog brings to our attention a recent Beckett Box Break of 2007 Exquisite Football, where Beckett opens two...

Beckett Year End Survey

Beckett has put out their year end survey for the 2007 Football Card season.  You can read about it, and get to the voting form here. Anyone who’s been here frequently knows that I like to poke a little fun at Beckett from time to time–ok, not so much fun...

More Beckett Opinions

OK, last week I posted an article questioning whether or not Beckett has a conflict of interest when it comes to grading/auctioning/pricing cards, and said that I knew that others had some strong opinions of Beckett as well.  Well, I happened to stumble across an...

BGS Response to PSA: Raised Rates

So, one of your biggest (by far?) competitors announces that they are improving their product–what’s your reaction? If you’re Beckett, you decide to raise your rates. That’s right, Beckett has announced that they will raise their rates on...
