I even saw a PSA 10 Kobe refractor on ebay that has a refractor line in it. were these cards just over graded and just got lucky grades? If a avrage joe like me sends my jordan refractor in to BGS what are my chances at a 9?

If you can see it, it will detract from the grade. I get mainly 9's and 9.5's on my last couple if BGS submissions because I am so picky on what I submit. The only grades I usually get that I am not happy with have to do with that surface subgrade. Centering and surface carry more weight than the corners and edges when they determine overall grade. I sent 3 diffierent Kobe base RC's from that set before I finally got this below....all because of centering and surface grades.
Centering and surface are hard to get good grades on that set as it is. I couldn't help more without a scan or good pic of your card.

This could POSSIBLY be because with as many submissions as they get and the time limit given (some people sending in for two day services), they may not have the time for double checking the cards with multiple graders.
