Just because someone wants a PSA 10 for X,XXX doesn't mean every other collector will want that same card for that much, or even that little. Buy what you want, not what others want. That's the rule I live by.

I have seen some really bad graded PSA 10 fleer jordan rookie off center print dots edge nicks ect. Even a BGS 9.5 jordan with all 9.5 sub grades is only going for about 6k. the only 9.5 Jordans that sell for huge money are the ones with two 10 subs and 2 9.5 subs

I belive a BGS 9.5 Jordan with all 4 9.5's should be worth more then a PSA 10 Jordan infact I read someware else the PSA 10 jordan that sold for $11,800 was a BGS 9.5 cross over and had 9 for a surface grade

I agree with your thoughts, but most of the high class vintage collectors that chase T206 sets, 1952 Topps Mantles all want PSA for the fact that they are more forgiving with the vintage stuff ...those are also the type of collectors that want to venture into "modern" basketball for a card like an MJ rc and that is it.
Now if I dropped that kind of money on cards, I would want the best grade I could get + I would want the slab to match all of the high dollar sports cards I already have.
