Cardscore provides a new perspective the hobby has never before seen. Our system allows card owners to submit cards without them ever leaving their possession, and quickly get results based on the opinions and data of 50 of their fellow collectors. Here are a few things the system is being used for.
Cardscore has taken the state of Michigan by storm! We have 8 partner shops with kiosks in Michigan.
As a way to say thank you to our Michigan customers and partner card shops, we are holding the Michigan Challenge where we will be giving away a once in a lifetime VIP experience at an upcoming Detroit Pistons game!
Cardscore brings multiple benefits to the card collecting hobby, including adding value to graded cards, scoring ungraded cards, and giving collectors a say in the grading process. However, there is another aspect of Cardscore that sets it apart from other grading services.
Cardscore is the world’s first crowdsourced card scoring platform. It allows collectors to submit cards to be scored - our term for graded - which then makes them available to our community of collectors to view and score.
Many collectors have already benefited from submitting cards and receiving higher Cardscore’s than the professional grade.
Cardscore is excited to announce our NSCC After Party at Joe’s Live, on Friday, July 30th, from 7:30-10:00 PM! If you’re looking to learn more about Cardscore and its technology, make your way over to Booth #859 at the National Sports Card Convention, where we will be handing out tickets for the event.
Cardscore is excited to announce that the payment of scorers has begun! Collectors will now be compensated for the time they spend scoring cards on app.cardscore.com. The scoring process is meant to be enjoyable and a service to the hobby.
By scoring cards, collectors are making their voice heard and having a direct impact on the process of determining a card's condition and value.
Cardscore has placed its first ever kiosk at Legends Sports and Games in Grand Rapids, MI! For the first time ever, collectors can go into a card shop and submit their own cards for scoring (grading).
When creating a system for crowdsourced card scoring (grading) there were two things we prioritized above all else:
1. High-resolution images of cards so that users can zoom in and see the card in great detail.
2. Securely sending the image to the platform, without the potential for somebody to manipulate it prior to uploading.
While at the TRISTAR Houston Sports Collectors Show, Cardscore will be raffling off multiple prizes including a 1952 Willie Mays #261 and a 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253!
The show runs from June 4-6 and will be the first opportunity for collectors to scan and submit their cards for scoring!
Cardscore is excited to announce that we will be demoing our scanning technology and allowing collectors to submit their own cards to be scored at the TRISTAR Houston Sports Collector Show from June 4-6! This will be the first-ever opportunity for the general public to submit cards for scoring. If you're going to the Houston show, be sure to check out our booth. If you're not attending, don't worry, Cardscore will soon be available for submitting cards at other shows and card shops across the country.
After the success of the Jordan Project, we here at Cardscore recently launched The True Mantle Rookie Project which allowed collectors to use app.cardscore.com to score (grade) 30 different 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle rookie cards. The cards had professional grades ranging from 1.5-6.5. Collectors viewed high-resolution images of each card and gave them scores on a scale of 1-100.
Cardscore, the world’s first crowdsourced card scoring (grading) platform recently launched, and thousands of collectors have already participated in the projects that we’ve run. How many times have you heard fellow collectors comparing two similarly graded cards and using terms like “great eye appeal”, “nicer”, and “undergraded” to describe why one card is better than the other? Cardscore is a platform that allows us to provide a specific metric to these commonly used terms.
This scoring process can be done by using our web application from a computer, tablet or phone. Individual collectors score on the same criteria that professional firms do – corners, edges, centering, and surface. After a card has been scored by 50-100 collectors, the extreme outliers are removed and a final score is given.
Cardscore is the world’s first crowdsourced card grading (scoring) platform! For the first time ever, sports card collectors have a chance to take part in the card grading process.
Cards are submitted to Cardscore, which can then be viewed and scored - our term for graded - by the collector community. Cardscore provides a specific metric to the often used descriptions people give their cards of “looks nicer”, “nice”, “undergraded”, “great eye appeal”, etc. It is not a replacement for professional grading, instead it adds an additional perspective - from the collector community - to a card that has already been professionally graded.
Cardscore is excited to announce the launch of our next large-scale crowdsourced card scoring project! This time around YOU and your fellow collectors will be scoring what many say is the most undervalued card of all time.
The results are in! You had the opportunity to view high-resolution scans of eight different Michael Jordan rookie cards that various professional graders gave an ‘8’.
We appreciate the time and effort collectors put in to help us pull off the world’s first-ever large-scale crowdsourced card grading project!
YOU the collectors have spoken and the scores you submitted have helped to determine a winner. We hope that you enjoyed having a say in the card scoring process!
Overall scores ranged from 79-85. It was close, but in the end, the SGC pictured below was the winner!
Cardscore recently launched The Jordan Project which allowed collectors to use app.cardscore.com to score (grade) eight Michael Jordan rookie cards that had all been professionally graded an 8. They viewed high-resolution images of each of the cards and gave them scores on a scale of 1-100.
This was the world's first large-scale crowdsourced card grading project! We wanted to get feedback on what participants thought of the project, so we ran a survey. The results were outstanding!
