Default BGS Grading Question

I am submitting a bunch of cards as part of the group break to BGS that is being held and I wanted some opinions. I was considering getting the 3 superfractors I have from 2012 BDPP graded bc I thnk all can get 9.5 or maybe even better. Is it worth getting Supers graded? The 3 are Iwakuma, Eddie Butler and Steve Schils. Thanks for the opinions Bryan

Anytime you can put a 9.5 on a card it can only help. Put a minimum grade on them of 9.5/10 and see what happens.

I would grade rare cards simply for the peace of mind alone. $10-$15 is a small price to pay versus selling a super for good money later and having the scammers try and get a partial refund claiming a random ding or chip or whatever. Grades leave no room for dispute on a card's condition.

Another Question:

How much affect does some light surface scratches on chrome cards affect the grade typically? seems like all the cards i see have this issue to some degree...

If selling..get graded.
If PC...keep as is.

Surface along with all other grades is up to the grader.
There is no rhyme or reason, just opinion.
All you can do is hope for the best.

Good luck with sub.
