near 9.5

near 9.5
I have two BGS graded cards that are both a 0.5 subgrade away from being graded a 9.5. One is a 1989 UD Ken Griffey Jr with three 9.5's and an 8.5 for surface. The other is a 1990 Leaf Frank Thomas with two 9.5's and 9's for corners and surface. What's the likelihood that a crack and regrade would come back as 9.5? I'd appreciate any advice people could give.

Since your low grades on both cards deal with the Surface subgrade, I highly doubt that you will get the sub bump. This is especially true because of the particular cards in question. IF you needed the Surface sub bump on a chrome card, or the like, I would say maybe, because you could crack it and wipe it down. But because its not, than I highly doubt that you'd get a sub bump.

I say look it closer and see you see any reason for the grade. If you disagree, just resubmit for grading just the surface. I would have them crack it for $3 and keep your other sub grades. I saw another thread, someone cracked it and it went down from a 9 to an 8.5, why risk it?
