Default BGS 9/10 or raw?

What do you guys think of the value of these compared to each other? Lately I bought a few BGS 9/10's of hot players/cards for a good amount less then the raw's. I prefer the bgs's for my pc for the case mainly and in my eyes they are better than most raw's of eBay. Want to know how you guys feel about them. Also the difference between these in base autos/ref autos compared to orange and other rarer cards. Are 9/10's & 9.5/9's etc. more valuable when it comes to more rare cards?

This is someting that's been on my mind too. Many people seem to not want a card slabbed unless it's Gem. I think most would rather have a raw than a BGS 9 because there's the possibility that the raw card could be graded by them, get a 9.5 and a value boost.

I also think that a PSA 9 carries more weight than a BGS 9.

But with PSA 9's of new cards, most seem to be graded by them because of a bad auto. Also mainly on eBay, most raw cards seem to be picked through already(at least higher value cards) and it seems very hard to find 9.5's for the most part. Also some of these 9/10's are .5 away from a 9.5 so I think those especially are a steal. In the past I remember hearing and seeing most BGS 9/10's were at least equal to or greater than the value of a raw card.

I'd rather have a 9/10 over a raw

But 9/10 should be worth a little more than raw.

I feel the same way about both. An example: just got a BGS 9/10 JBJ blue ref auto for $91. They sell $130-150 raw. Another is a Bundy 9/10 I got for $52 which normally sell for $65 plus.

Having a 10 auto should count for something with how man terrible auto's we have seen lately. With that said, I'd rather have a 9/10 slabbed than a raw for the auto grade and the preservation. Sad that some 9/10's sell for 5% less than raw when the set typically has clean autos on most cards. A 9/10 Oscar Taveras or BP1 Harper sell for more than a raw for sure.

This auto grading really sucks. I mean to get a 9.5 card and an 8 auto kills me. We cannot control an athletes penmanship. It is just another way for Beckett to squeeze $2 in profit. Anyone who collects coins remembers when the "first strike" grades came out. Somehow the coin is more valuable if the die struck it early on. Yet another ploy to earn more profit and it has direct bearing on our final value. Nothing better than a pristine card with a bad signature? It irks me that a bad pen or lazy signing athlete can screw our grade...rant over.

I would prefer to have a 9/10 over a raw card, partly because of the casing for it.
