A PSA 10 - GEM MINT is the equivalent of a BGS 9.5 - GEM MINT
PSA does not have anything at this time which would equal a BGS 10 - PRISTINE.
Obviously, if you think your cards are PRISTINE (everything looks perfect), then you should send them to BGS in the hopes of receiving a grade of BGS 10.
If not, I don't think there's much of a difference. Some people prefer BGS while others prefer PSA. From what I've seen on various auction/trading sites, most people prefer to purchase vintage cards graded by PSA as opposed to modern cards graded by BGS. Just my personal observation.
Agreed. Most buyers choose PSA for vintage and BGS for modern.
