Questions about grading
If I am posting this in the wrong section mods please move it. I have always wanted to have some of my cards graded but for some reason just never did. Well I am back on that bandwagon again so I figured I should ask before doing.

Which is better PSA or BGS? I am leaning towards BGS because there is no club membership required to ship to BGS which is good and their rates seem to be fair. Is there any reason to use one or the other or vice versa?

Another problem I am having and I am sure it is a common problem too many, which card do you choose to send in for grading? Do you base your decision on the population report or possibly how a card is selling on the bay?

I'd appreciate any and all feedback.

As for PSA vs BGS, the general consensus is to generally send your more modern cards to BGS and send your vintage (70's or 80's and before) to PSA. The prices I think are pretty similar. As for deciding what to send, it really depends. You can send cards that you think will have a higher resale value once graded or you can send cards that you just want protected. I have done both. Hope this helps.
