First it looks so much better out of the PSA and in a one touch, and I also like to be able to touch the card instead of it being closed in a sealed case. Just my opinion.

Oh and on another note a BGS 9 is not as easy as some people think it is to get... Most cards pack fresh would be lucky to get a 9+ IMO

Chances are you, might ding the card or mess it up. Graded cards are not meant to be broken out of the cases.
yes, it would look much better in a onetouch chase, since all your other cards are kept that way. I would keep it. look for another ungraded card.. if you are able to obtain the non-graded card, then turn around & sale the graded one.
I have a huge Jordan Farmar collection. Just about every card is in a onetouch holder, but I found that to be expensive over time, so I put some of the cheaper cards in toploaders instead.. I have 3 graded Farmar cards. I would like to bust them out of the cases, since the grades were 8.5-9, but I chose not to do so..
for those that like touching their cards... how often are you actually going to take the card out of it's protected case 7 touch the card. Are you going to touch the auto too with your greasy hands? Even if you washed your hands, there are still natural greases on your hands/skin. It can ruin the auto. You also have a chance of dropping/dinging the card by playing with it. Only time I would take a card out of it's case is to inspect it.. but even some collectors don't like that. most cards can be inspected while it is in the onetouch holder, toploader, or graded slabs... no reason to remove them for inspection.. unless the cases are scratched. to prevent scratching, put team bags around the cases.. those are cheap & can be easily exchanged for new ones..
