BGS Authentic Slabbing

Is there any way to do this without getting a JSA autograph grade? I have an autograph card that I just wanted slabbed for protection, with no autograph grade.

Thanks for any clarification!

It doesn't feel right, but likely because of Topps' bad collation. I too opened a sealed case like that in 2010.
