The world's most trusted source in collecting

Like do you have some PSA 10s and then some BGS 9.5s? Or do you try to stick to BGS only or PSA only? Seems I can buy some PSA 10s cheaper and other times the BGS cards are cheaper.
On a side note, why doesn't PSA sleeve there cards when they encase them?

And still no thoughts about why PSA doesn't sleeve there cards before slabbing them.

Based on the few replies here I would put the order of most desired as follows assuming you could find all the cards you wanted in BGS 10 and money wasn't an issue.
Wouldn't life be a lot more fun if money wasn't an issue?

PSA is THE most sort after when the card being graded is PRE 1990...
ANYTHING after that year, then BGS is the most sort after by far and will often comand $100's more for a BGS 9.5 over a PSA 10.
MJ 1993-94 Ultra Power in the key for example:
PSA 10's sell for $200-$330
BGS 9.5's sell for $900-$1700
Forget about BGS 10, an MJ 1986-87 RC BGS 10 would sell for $50,000-$100,000 possibly more.
