The world's most trusted source in collecting

I like PSA simply because if they grade it a 9, it's a 9.
I like Beckett also, BUT, sometimes you get a card with this numbers. Centering 9, Corners 9, Edges 9, Surface 9.5. Final grade = 9. I don't know about you guys but that 9.5 bothers me. I would prefer that 9.5 be lowered to a 9 and print that on the label than looking at that 9.5. Final grade is 9 anyway. Before I realized Beckett did this, I was buying as I need it, now I go out of my way to find out the sub grades. If one of them is higher or lower than the rest, I don't want it. Just my two cents...
