Should i get it crossovered here at Beckett or SGC......last i heard PSA required a annual subscription fee..is that correct?)
I have used Beckett a few times and currently have some being processed...Even the JSA autographs are good.
Which company would i have a higher grade at? in hopes of maintaining a 10.

So usually GAI and SGC are one grade lower than PSA and BGS.

I'm on-board with that and really like the look and quality of BGS holders... however, if you're looking for resale value, PSA appears to be #1. A good example is the 93 SP Jeter. PSA 9's consistently sell for $500+ and BGS 9's about $200. Not sure why. I have a REALLY nice old label BGS 9 Jeter that I'm considering sending to PSA just to cross it over for the same grade.
Anyone else seeing this? Also, who do you think is tougher these days? Back in the day BGS for sure but they're definately lightened up... probably why the value has taken a hit. I have about 30 high-end 90's inserts that I'm trying to decide where to send. Resale value is definately important to me, even if the grades are tougher to come by.

And, if you use any of the Big 3 (BGS/PSA/SGC), I don't think you have a snowballs chance in September of keeping the 10. I'm just being realistic here.

If i did cross it over---a 9.5 wouldn't be bad..but if its a 9, then it drops considerably... a 8.5 would come out even.
