Default How Should I Grade My MJ Auto?

Hey guys I just got this Michael Jordan auto and it is in such great condition that I want to get it graded. my question is should I send it in to get graded or look for a show where they do on site grading? Also what service do you guys think is best Beckett, Psa, GA, or maybe something else.

BGS for modern cards...PSA for vintage. Just send it in, I've sent in many cards w/o any problems.

True. It's certified authentic. Really is no reason to get it graded.

If you send it BGS, just do 20 day service. You will get it back quicker because not many people are sending cards for grading right now.

Well I plan on keeping it for a long time. I want to grade it to 1) protect it from damage and 2) maintain the value of the card in the long run. The card is perfect right now and I would like to try and keep it that way forever, especially because it is a Jordan auto

Send it to BGS. Should take about a month to get it back on the 20 day service level.

Thanks Eric. A few people have said to try that way, so I think that is what I am going to do.

Unless it gets a 9.5, then just have them put an AUTHENTIC SLAB on it (the blue label).

I took it in to my LCH, where they guy has one of those mag eye pieces, we both took a close look at it. He told me he thinks it has a shot at a 9.5 or 10 depending on if I package it well enough so it doesnt get damaged on the way to get graded.
