Lmao, ok, I've given BGS all my business and have had a pretty good success rate with predicting the grades, but you can never predict a 10. A 9.5 yes, but never a 10. Those are just too hard to get to expect them. If you're unhappy with the grade, crack it

i believe, if you dont want less than a 9.5, you can state so, and they wont grade it
you arent a professional, so even though you have had past success, that doesnt guarantee you will always be right. (dont mean this in a hostile way)

And on those Auto's, the Grade is probably on the back. On certain cards, they have started putting the Grade on the back.
I hope that this helps. I forgot to mention that BGS is a lot more strict than PSA!!

At Nationals this year I purchased 6 Ken Griffey 1989 Upper Deck Rookie Cards for $8.00 a piece. At first glance, all four corners were sharp, great centering! I thought to myself WOW, I cant pass this deal up!
I sent 3 to PSA and 3 to Beckett to be graded. The 3 I got back from PSA were all sent back to me not slabbed as "tampered" with. BGS graded their 3 as 8, 8 and 8.5. Looks like the BGS messed up there.
Now when I look back at it, I think the reason I got them for $8.00 a piece is because the dealer knew they were tampered with.
Yep, there on the back, Egg Yolk on my face When did they start doing this? My customers want to see it on the front? I want to see it on the front!
Thanks Beckett for telling me this new practice of yours!
