Attending MagicCon Amsterdam? Beckett Will Grade Your Cards Onsite

MagicCon Amsterdam attendees can now have their Magic: The Gathering cards graded on site as Beckett, a longtime market leader in trading card assessment and pricing, will have a booth at the convention.

The company says they will be on site every day of the convention, which runs from June 28-30.  Those wishing to have cards graded can do so by appointment, though the company does say that "appointments for on-site card grading will not be available on Sunday, June 30th; however, our standby line will be open for takeback submissions only."

Pricing for card grading services is $150 per card for 1-5 cards and $125 per card for six cards or more.  Furthermore, Beckett is charging $25 per card for graded card review and $20 per card for raw card review.

The company is also hosting a special VIP showcase event with tickets starting at $4,500 (€4,160) to attend.

The event, which includes a Friday night reception and Saturday night drinks and dinner for as many as two guests per admission, includes two nights hotel and allows participants to have 50 to 100 cards graded and encapsulated on site, depending on the package they purchase.  Attendees can also attend an interactive workshop where you'll learn the ins and outs of card grading from Becket's team of experts.

As for MagicCon Amsterdam itself, single-day badges are still available to purchase online.
