PSA to BGS
A few I cracked open and sent to BGS with my last group submission. Nothing special but I like em a lot. Thought you might like to see the before and after's.

Was PSA 10

RE: PSA to BGS
That makes complete sense. I have always thought Beckett graders were tougher. As a teacher, I completely appreciate that. I would rather give a student a "B" because she earned it than an "A" for her self-esteem. If people know a teacher/card grader is more accurate and less forgiving, it makes that grade all the more meaningful. If it is all I can find for a specific card, I will buy the PSA. However, if a Beckett version is within 0.5-1.0, and it is lower, I will go for the Beckett every time. I am not at all trying to sound like a commercial because of whose board this is. This is my honest opinion.

I look for career Chicago Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, Fire, Red Stars, and Sky players in their respective Halls of Fame. Add to that list some personal favorite lifers from past and present rosters, and everything else in my collection is up for trade.

Pretty consistent with being 0.5 apart.

RE: PSA to BGS
I like that you converted them. BGS slabs just look better, to me at least...

RE: PSA to BGS
That's cool I always wondered how accurate the grading was. I have a stack of Cutlers I would like swapped so that's make me feel better on cracking them.

RE: PSA to BGS
It's actually basically the same, which is what I would expect for the most part from PSA to BGS or vice versa. (Keep in mind a PSA 10 and a BGS 9.5 are the same thing.)

So you have one that gained a half point, 2 that were reduced a half point, and the BGS 9.5 which stayed the same.

I would love to see this done with GAI or GMA or one of those, hahahaha This is why I stick to PSA, BGS, or SGC graded cards if I buy a graded card, although I prefer not to. If it is graded by anyone other than those 3, I will just keep looking for a raw version.

RE: PSA to BGS
Yup. Pretty much as I expected. I was hoping for a 10 on the PSA 10 but no such luck. Thanks for looking, now I'm glad I posted them. Merry Christmas!

RE: PSA to BGS
Good to see they were both pretty close in range. I like BGS for new stuff and PSA for vintage. Like the Csonka and Simms I woulda kept in the PSA holder, still sweet either way!
