The world's most trusted source in collecting

For vintage, I don't have a preference between PSA and SGC, but I always pass by a card in a BGS holder.

Not to say that BGS isn't credible, I just prefer the others.

I've got all sizes, from T206 in a SGC holder, a 1948 Bowman Spahn RC in a PSA holder, a 1952 Bowman Mantle in a PSA holder, and a full-sized Chipper Jones RC in PSA....all 4 are different shapes and not one of them moves around.
I didn't ask for a snappy, sarcastic comment. I was stating my preference. You're welcome to grade with BGS, and that's fine by me, and if you don't like PSA/SGC, that's fine too.
