Is BCCG Beckett or a knock off company?

Straight from Beckett's Website:

"BCCG-graded cards (Beckett Collectors Club Grading) are completely separate and vastly different from the premium BGS- or BVG-graded cards. We can assure you that the same consummate care in handling is followed and consistent industry-leading quality of grading is applied to each and every card. As a result, BCCG-graded cards provide an eye-catching secondary market alternative to other graded card products, reaching a wider audience of fans and collectors. It features a modified numerical grading scale, with each level representing a range of standard conditions (Mint or better, Near mint or better, Excellent or better, etc.).
Furthermore, BCCG-graded cards are perfect for beginning or veteran collectors. Cards of a wide variety of star players are available in BCCG slabs. BCCG-graded cards are a perfect fit for the new collector who wants to be sure he's getting an excellent product from a trusted hobby source."

The grading of Good or better looks to be correct for the card listed.

Thanks. I should have checked the website. I agree the grade is right. I was just surprised that 6 corresponded to "good or better," but that's what the website says.

Imagine how the thrill turns sour when the collector learns that "vg or better" means "vg at best" and that BCCG is worthless plastic when he shows his new treasure to someone with experience.

Yes it is strange that a grade of "Good or Better" equates to a 6, but apparently that is their grading scale. I have never purchased anything in a BCCG holder, so at first glance, it does appear to be out of place. Speaking of grading, I just found out that a GAI 2 equates to an SGC "A" due to trimming, as I was just the recipient of that on a T205 Ty Cobb.

I could be wrong, but I was under the impression that BCCG was created for "Home Shopping Network" type outlets.

Maybe they just forgot to put the period before the 6

as in .6

I figure if you stick to SGC, PSA or Beckett (the real stuff) you will probably be ok.

They may want to change this line on their site from:

"Furthermore, BCCG-graded cards are perfect for beginning or veteran collectors."

to:

Furthermore, BCCG-graded cards are perfect for beginning, GAI or visually impaired collectors.
