Default Quick Grading Opinion needed...

So I'm doing 5 or 6 spots in a group submission in a few days. Have 4 cards I'm definitely sending in, cant decide on what my 5th is gonna be (might end up doing 6) Here are my options for the 5th..
2012 Bowman Chrome Castellanos base auto
2012 Bowman Chrome Soler Purple refractor /199
2012 Bowman Draft Cespedes gold refractor /50

Would definitely send in the Cespedes because the card looks amazing but with draft releasing today Im wondering if I shouldnt just throw it on ebay?

Thanks for any comments

My vote is for the Soler, but really hard to say without seeing scans.

I would put the Cespedes on ebay and send the Castellanos in.

If the Castellanos has a good auto then I would do that one. I know some of his autos are bad so I wouldn't send it in if it had a chance of getting a 9 auto.

I'm higher on Cespedes than most people. I think he will be a stud for the next several years with his value being more next year than the other two.

Thanks for the thoughts guys, after further review the Soler may be off center left to right? And has a tiny hair surface scratch that was difficult to see but I know you gotta look for those kinds of things when sending in. Posted cell pics in first post, sorry, dont have a scanner hooked up to the mac im on

It costs the same. They return the card raw and usually attach a sticky note detailing why it did not meet the minimum grade.

that castellanos base is the only one without bad centering and it might not be 9.5, aaron could guess better than me

mesoraco might be ok, i'd have to see more attributes in person

The Castellanos on the right is borderline 8.5 centering. It is always hard to tell from pics but it appears to measure approx 58/42 T-B which is 8.5.

the mesoraco is a pc item so dont care as much what it gets. with the centering on the others is there even a chance to get at least a 9 total grade? does a 9 hurt values?? seems like under 9.5 is frowned upon...
