Card grading is over rated and a waste of ones money in most cases and should be used for high value and very rare cards due to counterfeits and being altered. A mint card is a mint card regardless of age in my opinion.

We've all seen ugly looking PSA 10's, conversely we've all seen ugly looking BGS 9.5's!

Also, there are considerably less BGS 10's floating around so naturally the prices are going to be much higher.
Lastly, I prefer BGS/BVG more than PSA but generally speaking I believe PSA graded cards get higher prices. This may be more accurate with vintage cards and there are exceptions but typically people prefer psa.
