Default Exquisite Grading Question

First time getting cards graded.

Sent in a few 03-04 Exquisite Basketball RC to Beckett. No one spectacular. Got a few 9.0's and few 8.5's. The 8.5's are like a .5 from being a 9. Can I resubmit it possibly to shoot for 9.0?

Am I going to loss some money now with such a low grade?

Thanks for any input. Saw some Lebron's on Ebay. Crazy prices wish I grabbed one of those a long time ago. I only got like Chris Kaman, Boris Diaw and Luke Ridnour.

A BGS 9 exquisite is a BGS 9.5 of the regular cards.

A 9.5 Exquisite is rare and they go for big big bucks. 8.5s I would rather raw.

You did well, the corners are what kill most exquisites

Same thing as with upper deck black and elite black box. Thick cards with colored edges an surfaces. Very rare for 9.5s. As he said. Consider a 9 to be the same as 9.5

But if a BGS 9.0 is a 9.5 for a regular card, wouldn't a 8.5 turn into a 9.0 in that analogy, So your saying I should make it raw again to get the same value?

So if your analogy is correct. A raw Lebron exquisite rookie would be worth $10,000-12,000. A BGS 8.5 would be worth $8,000? Just trying to get an idea how much my value just decreased

A BGS 8.5 is about the same as Raw. But watching a card graded at 8.5 is a turnoff

Can you send something back to get regarded? It's only a .5 getting a 9.0

But it's an exquisite from 2003-04. I think they would know either way

I think it would be funny if people kept resubmitting their exquisite cards, so that one day a card that is numbered out of 25, would have 26+ entries in the Beckett population report. How embarrassing would that be?

i think you can always send for a regrade, i think its an option on the site. i have so many cards that are a definitely 9.5 but they get a 9 9 9.5 9.5 10 auto. i am pretty sure if my avg order is 25 cards 12/13 come back 9 and the other half 9.5 w maybe 1 8.5 per batch. i think the close call 9s are so that you have incentive to pay for the regrade, just my thoughts!

Well the package was suppose to come today, I waited around all day. It was unfortunate because it never came. I thought I did fed-ex but when I got the tracking number they used register mail USPS. They said they do this with any items insurance value over $3,000. I hate USPS. They don't even have good tracking information. All it says is left Dallas on October 17, expected delivery October 19th. Does not track the package at all and could not even tell where it was. How come BGS would use such an inferior mailing system? I am hoping it comes tomorrow for me, god forbid it was lost

Is this normal by BGS? Just kind of annoys me with USPS registered mail, it does show tracking info. I like when it's detailed and shows you where it is. Just very annoying.

i was lucky enough to pickup my favorite exquisite card graded 9.5

i would have bought it regardless of the grade, but in some peoples minds it's just that much better

Read the rules, all mail declared over $3000 is sent registered. Its the only way to insure for that amount.
