Getting ONE card graded, i need help deciding which one!
So I have 1 free grading certificate from PSA and decided to use it. I can't decide which card to send in. I want to get the best grade possible since its my last free one. Which do you guys think?
2008 Topps Chrome Refractor RC

Or 2008 Absolute Memorabilia Star Gazing Jumbo Numbers Prime Patch /10

Those are the best pics I could get at the moment. Eventually both will be graded but since I'm only sending 1 this time I want to get a 10, or as close to a 10 as I can

That Star Gazing looks a little ragged around the inside of the 2. Is it just the scan?

If we trade, please respect me by shipping out BEFORE my end arrives!

You are correct. It's not nearly as rough as it looks in the scan but it's definitely not a smooth edge

Go with the Chrome. Chrome, Finest, and Sterling stuff grades the best out of any cards. You'll have a better chance at a higher grade with them.
the Star Gazing, looks like the bottom left corner on the front is bent?

No it isn't bent at all, it's just the penny sleeve. I think I will go with the chrome. It looks great in person and its the best centered chrome card I've got lol

I'd go with the Topps Chrome. Absolute is a very hard grade with the cards being a thicker card stock.
