Default Bgs holder help

I was wondering if anyone has ever cracked open a BGS holder? I have a card I am going to switch from BGS to PSA and I do not want to damage the card. hopefully there is one person out there who has cracked Becketts enigma.

I just did it recently. There's a bunch of Youtube videos out there telling you how, but I didn't watch them.

I used a pair of cutting pliers, cut the top two corners, chipped away that top part along the top that over laps the bottom. Then I was able to get a very thin flat blade screwdriver in there and slowly preyed it open.

It was actually really simple, and as long as you don't rush, and aren't careless, you won't come close to damaging the card.

*edit* - watch some videos though, don't blame me if you screw up, lol

Its too late I am holding you responsible. Although I have not done it yet. I have a BGS card that I don't care about and I am going to practice on that 1. Thanks for the advice.

dpeck is the man at this. He even has a video on youtube where he breaks one like a boss.

I like that, "breaks one like a boss." LOL

Just follow the instructions on my video. You can't go wrong.

Good luck.

I cracked one for practice and it went well, a lot easier than I thought.
