Copy / paste from Facebook, for those that don’t know:

Beckett Media, the most trusted brand in collectibles, is expanding into the comics marketplace. Beckett today announced the acquisition of Comic Book Certification Service, LLC, an industry leader in grading and certification.

“We are thrilled to welcome Steve Borock and the CBCS team to the Beckett collectibles family,” said Sandeep Dua, chief executive of Beckett and its portfolio company, Entrust Global Group. “Our global team is fully invested in serving the comics community with the trust, integrity and fairness that Beckett has delivered to collectors for nearly 40 years.”

Jeromy Murray, Beckett’s vice president for grading and authentication, said CBCS will join Beckett’s flagship brands as the No. 1 choice for collectors. Beckett Grading Services (BGS) is the unquestioned leader in sports card grading, and Beckett Authentication Services (BAS), just 11 months after its 2016 launch, is a dominant player in the autograph authentication market.

“The entire CBCS/Beckett team is committed to growing the hobby, both in North America and internationally,” Murray said. “We can’t wait to begin connecting with comics collectors and retailers at shows, conferences and hobby shops world-wide.”

Borock, CBCS’ co-founder and president, said Beckett’s infrastructure and global reach provides the grading company with unprecedented opportunity for growth. Borock, CEO Michael Bornstein and other key staff members will continue to serve collectors from CBCS’ offices in St. Petersburg, FL.

“Today is an exciting step forward for CBCS and the comics community,” Borock said. “Infusing Beckett’s trusted brand and its talent in technology, marketing and global expansion into the market creates an even greater opportunity for CBCS to serve our great hobby.”

They mention "internationally" so I wonder if that means CBCS's presence will extend in any significant manner West and to Europe for our friends over there. They can bolster BGS's infrastructure, add more vaults for quicker TAT's and perhaps this also means a census is on the way.

Now I see why they were in such a mad rush to get new orders at all these Con's. They needed the receivables to help the sell price. TAT be danmed, lol.

Yikes, I hope they keep their CBCS labels (I'm sure they will look good, just think the Beckett label looks bland)

I would suggest not going to Becketts Facebook page and reading the most recent reviews, I feel sick.

Please let my books be graded, handled, and encapsulated as usual before any changes come 🤞🏻🤞🏻

If you look at Entrust Global Group you might begin to see where this all might end up.

If I have to send my books in again for another label change to soothe my OCD...I might finally stroke out.

Not saying this will happen but for an additional 3.00 per graded card Beckett allows for a personalized label in their card grading/slabbing. That means you could set-up your own pedigree if it comes over here.

That would be so sweet!!!!

Says it has to be 28 letters or less.

Also, Beckett has its own forum. Again, Beckett has its own forum/message boards. It says they have 1,464,086 members registered
