I see both sides, I see BGS side as far as concerned they could be accused of scratching the surface of a card, but those concerns should not be considerably more than edges and corners.
The other side would be that they could give higher grades if they wiped the card surface and when did giving an extra .5-1 on a grade hurt the customer approval???

Also keeping the population low on the high grades. You have to remember they are a business just like the local Wal-Mart, Target, insert whatever name here, etc. But I see your input.....but it's a business to them in the end. That's just all IMO though.

I cracked most and resent in and was happy afterwards. Marked the extra cost up to a lesson learned. Hopefully it wasnt a huge submission. Mine was 30 cards so I ate about $280 lol
