Default Worth Sending To BGS?

I plan on sending these cards in, any help on them would be appreciated. I know the surface and corners will not look good on these bc of such an old scanner. My question is more of the centering and the actual card worth it? How do they grade centering on bowman sterling cards?

If that was a compliment, then thank you if not I am actually looking more for opinions as this is something new to me. I got 9 cards raw graded at a show recently, and realized that I want my collection to shift to graded cards. There were cards I thought would grade higher, and some higher that I thought would grade lower so kinda looking for opinions on these as to if I should grade or not.

I am new to the grading scene also, but after i examined these cards with a minimum 6x magnifying glass and felt confident of a 9 or higher I would send them in. They sell easier and they display prettier graded! If you don't feel confident in getting a 9 or better than don't send them in. Those are beautiful cards either way.

Get a 10x loupe and look at the corners and edges.

The Austin Jackson, is that the 1/1?

Nice group of cards, might want to get involved in a group submission so it's a little cheaper. I would also hold off on sending the RAW 8 Posey and 8.5 Machado.

Nice stuff man. A few issues that stood out to me:

1) L-R centering on the Gerrit Cole is off
2) the auto on the Gary Brown Sterling refractor runs off the sticker, so it'll get a 9 auto grade
3) the top left corner on the Taillon AFLAC looks soft
4) T-B centering is pretty bad on the Kimbrell Topps Chrome Blue Ref

Thank you, did not know about the Gary Brown sticker, unfortunately that is the ref version the rest are base. The Taillon is sharp just a horrible scanner that is 10 years old (literally). I forgot about top to bottom. For centering what do i look at for some of the sterling cards? Are the 1/1 Austin jackson, Posey triple, Hank aaron and them worth grading or better to sell raw?

Thank you for the help so far, im gonna be removing some and adding some more.
