Default BGS for basketball collectors - help?

so I bought 3 boxes of 2008 Donruss EEE baseball for one of the Super Bowl promos. I ended up pulling this card that, IMO, is a lock for a BGS 9.5/10. However, I do not know the tendencies of basketball collectors as far as grading goes. Is it worth sending in assuming it does get a 9.5/10?

I would send it in. I think it will easily get a 9, but it can get a 9.5. How do the corners, and edges look? The top edges, look a little chippy

Edges look great, the corners are what might get it a 9, but I am pretty sure it will get a 9.5.

I would send it. It looks like a nice card, and if it gets a 9.5, it could fetch a pretty penny when he returns

Its black corners so you can see any kind of flaw really easily. I wouldn't call it an easy 9.5. And centering from left to right doesn't look perfect either, and this is only the front.

There are 2 very small white spots on the back bottom corners. But you are correct about the centering, it is off more than at first glance. The pop report is interesting, two 8.5's and one 9.
