The best company should be the one who has the toughest grading system and not the prettiest case. I started this thread with the intent to figure out which company is the best a grading and not the best at protecting. Forgive me if Im being rude but who cares about the case more so than the grade?
On a different note the PSA registry inflates the values of cards which is another stupid thing. Just because a person wants to complete a PSA 10 set shouldnt make a card worth more than a BGS 9.5 IF and the keyword is IF BGS 9.5 is more mint than a PSA 10. Do you see my point or am I on something?
Thanks to everyone who posted so far.

Common sense alone tells you that if one grades one area more than the other, they are more apt to be better in that area than the other.
Out of the big three, BVG is not the best when it comes to vintage cards. Still good but third out of the big three. Take a look at any major auction house, where most of the product listed is vintage cards, and you'll realize quickly that maybe 5%, at most, of their graded cards are graded by BVG. That alone should tell you something as to how the vintage world views them in relation to the other two. You'll typically see PSA as the best for vintage from post-war up to 1980-90 and SGC for anything pre-war.

When you buy a graded card, I want it to not move around and stay the grade it was given. BGS/BVG has the best slabs to protect the cards given the grade they are.
