Default question for experienced BGS submitters

I have read there is a way to request nothing come in lower than a 9, they wont even grade it, they will send it back raw...

i was curious how this is notated on a submission form and also is there a cost reduction if they arent graded, or do they still charge?

just write a note on the submission form. Same cost would apply as they still have to grade the card.

they still charge because they go through the process of grading...otherwise how would they know if it's lower than a 9. Thus you have to pay for the process of grading. You don't pay extra for encapsulation...it's included in the price of grading.

I think I am answering my own question here but want to be sure...is the reason you would do this be so you can still sell it on ebay without the negative connotation that an 8 or 8.5 would bring a newer card?

Everyone has their own reason but I would agree with this...the minimum I would buy is a BGS 9 as that is what I consider NM-MT...to me this means a raw card with no obvious major flaws and may have a nick or two on the corners, edges, etc.

If it's for my pc...then grading isn't as important, so I may just grade it as authentic with no grade...and maybe grade the auto. Now if I get a BGS 9.5 (either buying it or getting it graded) it's a nice thing to have and most of my pc cards are graded BGS 9.5 (more bought this way). Only reason is I know for value wise having the BGS 9.5 helps with eventual resale in the future. Also getting them graded and encased helps protect the card and whenever I die I know that my collection will go to my kids and they won't have to worry if it's real or not or if it's "mint" etc...

all of that makes sense...

yes most are plans for eventual resale, and less than a 9.5 is hardly desired. 9 sells almost the same as ungraded, and 8.5 for most modern cards will sell below market value and not really worth it...

i am sending in autos from harper, strasburg, upton, kershaw, fielder, machado, castro, trout, lincecum, heyward, stanton, moore and more....so some i may sell within a few months and others i will most likely be stored away in a PPC and hang onto for a few years until they reach their prime
