Beckett Grading Services to Accept "Autographed" Science Fiction Cards at Nebula and WorldCon Weekends
Holy Smoke! Step aside Mickey Mantle! Instead of baseball superstars getting all the attention, it's autographs of science fiction authors that are about to get "celebrity treatment!"
Starting with this May's Nebula Awards Weekend (Pittsburgh, May 18-21, 2017), autographed trading cards that feature science fiction authors will be given the same stellar treatment that has traditionally been afforded to collectible cards that feature sports stars, music icons, or idols of the film & television industries. Beckett Grading Services--the worldwide authority on authenticating and grading rare and valuable sports collectibles, like the 1952 TOPPS Mickey Mantle rookie card and the 1909 T206 Honus Wagner tobacco card--now accepts the Walter Day Collection of Science Fiction Historical Trading Cards for grading as investment-grade collectables.
