MEET THE POKE PLATEAU
Q: What inspired you to start collecting cards?
Courtney: Matt inspired me to start collecting again.
Matt: I started collecting when I was a kid when my dad brought my brother and me to a sports card to buy packs of cards.
Q: What are your earliest memories of opening packs?
Courtney: I remember opening packs from our local books a million where you could also play with other kids. I only collected and always traded with my sister and cousins.
Matt: I remember going to a card show with my dad and brother and seeing Japanese Pokemon packs, at a time where the English cards hadn’t even come out yet. I had my dad buy me a pack and was instantly hooked.
Q: What are your favorite TGA slabs so far?
Courtney: My favorite TGA slab so far is the gold Celebrations Mew. I like all the metallic slabs so far and I love being able to customize and pair colors.
Matt: My favorite TGA Slab we have is our Shiny Charizard VMAX from Shining Fates. The Metallic Black label we chose makes the card really POP!
Q: What is one thing you would tell someone considering TGA to grade their cards?
Courtney: I would tell everyone that TGA has been great to work with, we get to customize the slabs, the grading is legit and you get your cards back in a reasonable time, unlike other grading companies.
Matt: TGA allows more customization with their slabs than any other grader. The customer service is very accommodating and transparent. The prices are also affordable for collectors. Cards are graded and returned in a reasonable time frame, compared to bigger grading companies.
