Default Grading Cards..... What and When do YOU do it???

Curious what about everyone's views on grading cards......
Only High Value Cards?
To set yourself apart from the pack?
When you think you are getting a 9.5 or better?

I Grade cards for a couple of reasons. One reason is when I think I can get a better grade than what a raw card would go for, i.e. vintage rookies. The other is for preservation purposes. Those thick cards that nobody seems to have a case for, I figure if I don't get them graded, the condition will only get worse rattling in a big 35ct. case.

IMO,
only grade vintage (pre 1979) or HIGH END cards plus Super Star Rookies. Also, only use reputable grading companies like PSA, SGC and Beckett - not necessarily in that order.
Here are my observations for getting the most for your buck;
Beckett used only for modern stuff
SGC used only for pre 1950 stuff
PSA is good across the board.
