The two posters criticizing BGS seem to have an agenda and I don't buy it. One stop on feebay and it's plain as day that a BGS 9.5 is much more coveted than a PSA 10. And quite frankly, I'm sick of seeing 80's hockey psa 10's with edges that look like a bandsaw.
You can make the argument that vintage collectors prefer PSA for their history and their reputation with older sportscards. But there is no doubt whatsoever that modern collectors prefer BGS.

With a 9.5 it means that there is something better lurking out there. But a PSA 10 is the highest grade by PSA, so people can brag they have perfection.

There was just a PSA 10 that just sold for $400+ with many different bidders while the bgs 9.5 same card listed for $199 cannot get a single bid. This is not uncommon either. Everyones entitled to his/her own opinion of course. Attaching flee bay links in case anyone has doubts.
I buy the BGS 9.5 and have it regraded as a PSA 10 its an automatic $200 profit.
I realize selling price is not everything , true collectors are not in this to sell and make money. I'm just pointing out the disparity in market values and PSA 10 own BGS 9.5 - modern card AND vintage.
