Default Preferred vintage grader

Recently picked up a koufax RC and im looking to get it graded. I dont deal much in vintage, is PSA still the popular choice for grading? BGS, SGC?

I would do PSA. I think with vintage you gotta go with the company that has the longest track record, and that would be PSA.

SGC is the absolute best when it comes to looks!

I respect PSA, but I'm a SGC guy all the way for vintage and it's not even close. I have my reasons, but to each their own. Ford/Chevy, Coke/Pepsi, Nirvana/Pearl Jam, everyone has their favorites in life and I'm not here to bash the one I don't prefer.

On a Koufax rookie, PSA will more often than not bring you the best return as far as sell price. The card in question won't grade all that high due to surface issues, 2 bent back corners, and what appears to be creasing, but it's definitely a great card you should be proud to own. Congratulations, and enjoy it!

PSA is best IMO from an overall standpoint although SGC does have a nice look to it. Congrats on the nice card!
