basically just upgrading the surface grade from 9 to 9.5
what do you guys think?

Ok, when you say "upgrade", what are you referring to? Sell your card and pay an additional $2,500 to purchase one with the specified sub-grades? if so, what guarantees you that you are going to find an MJ with those specific sub-grades, specially the 10 centering (which is the hardest to obtain).
At any rate, it all depends on how much you paid for your current MJ RC and if you are OCD like me, lol!. Currently, MJ RCs with all 9.5 sub-grades (True GEM MT) are selling for around $5.8k (look at eBay item #: 400315551341). If you already paid a significant amount for your Rookie Card and by adding another $2,500.00 takes you over the $5.8K, then I would say, NO it is not worth it; however, as we all know, MJ cards (specially the RC) has no where to go but UP... But, how much higher? That is yet to be seen.

Some guy has the 10/9.5/9.5/9.5 and would be willing to trade for my card which is a 10/9.5/9.5/9 along with 2500 in cash.(10 reoesenting the centering)
I don't quite remember how much I paid for my jordan...i'm just wondering if the money is worth upgrading from my card to his.
I am a bit ocd which is wh I am even considering this

Maybe if it was for the centering but not for a .5 upgrade on the surface. That guy is trying to rob you in my opinion. Think hard about it bro. That's a lot of money.
