Revolution Card Grading, founded by David Dorogi in April 2021, is revolutionizing the way cards are graded and authenticated in the industry. With headquarters located in Blairsville, Georgia, and a recent expansion to Pittsfield, Massachusetts, the company is dedicated to improving the hobby by creating tamper-proof slabs, better designs to match each card, and outstanding customer service.
David’s passion for cards began at a young age when his father, a general contractor, pulled a couple of 1958 cards from a wall he was renovating. From that moment on, David was hooked on the history and magic of cards. True to his growing passion, he spent his teenage years working in a card shop in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where he learned the importance of condition for preserving value.
After college at the University of Central Florida, David spent three years developing the idea for Revolution Card Grading before officially launching the company in 2021. One of the unique features of RCG is its proprietary technology that allows them to print designs directly on the inside of the card case, making the slabs tamper-proof. In addition, unlike other companies that use paper labels, the case is ruined when someone tries to open an RCG slab, which is an added layer of protection ensuring that the card inside is authentic and original.
RCG also boasts some of the highest grading standards in the industry, which is reflected in their consistent and accurate authentication and grading. The company has been featured on ESPN Radio, Sportscard Investor interviews and articles, and countless positive YouTube videos, and is recognized as a professional grader or grading choice on eBay.
In addition to their grading services, RCG has recently partnered with Reggie Davis, owner of This and That Sports in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. This partnership allows RCG to open a second grading shop next door to the card shop, making it the first in the industry to own both a grading company and a card shop. As a result, customers can now open packs, buy cards, and grade on-site immediately, providing a level of personal customer service that is unmatched in the industry.
David and his team at RCG are passionate about cards and collectibles, and they want to help people understand the condition and value of their cards. Furthermore, they go out of their way to provide a personal touch and transparency in every interaction, ensuring that customers are satisfied with their finished product.
