Default BGS Grades are in! A couple questions for the people of Blowout....

Got the following back today thanks to Mrsnyder for hosting! Couple of questions for everyone:

1. On the chrome cards, do the 9s hurt/raise/or stay the same value? Just trying to figure out fair prices for all...

2. If I was to resubmit (the Mikel is very close to the 9.5), how does it work? Do I just send it in as it is? And how much does it cost?

3. On the Mikel the auto grade piece is a little messed up, you can somewhat see it in the scan. Is there anything I can/should do about this?

All of them are avaliable so lmk if interested. Thanks in advance for the help!!

Solid grade on the Smith. In my opinion I would rather buy a raw chrome auto than graded 9. I say crack em and send em back

A BGS 9 can go either way on the chromes. But if you are patient you can sell it for slightly more then a raw.

I know this won't answer any of your questions, and I'm hardly an expert on grading, but...

I don't think I'd bother sending the Mikel back, hoping for a 9.5. The centering won't come back a 9.5 and it could be downgraded. That flaw is much more obvious than on the Ridley.

Good luck whatever happens.

the auto sticker wont hurt the value either way
and it costs the same either way.

How do they grade the centering on a card with no borders. Is there a focal point of the player in relation to the edges?

I honestly don't think you should send in the Ridley again, because it might just be the scan but from the scan it looks like the autograph could be downgraded to a 9 (i see 2 slight fade marks) and also with the corners if there is any white on a corner the grade goes down by .5, so if u have 3 corners that have white (even if it is a extremely small white spot) it won't be above a 8.5 subgrade.

If you send in for a graded card review to try to get a bump they won't downgrade it. You don't have to crack it, just send in the slab. If it doesn't get bumped they will leave it as a 9/10.

Interesting. I have that same leshoure card. Is there a small indention on the right hand side...in the border...near his elbow. It looks like yours has it...and mine has it as well. I was thinking about grading mine but wasn't sure how it would affect it the grade.

I do not think it would effect the card. I sent some cards in with similar indentions and got a 9.5 for surface and edges.

Those auto grades give me hope that the tiny bit of streakiness in the Darvish auto I sent in won't lower the grade to a 9. That's a GREAT grade with awesome subs for the SP Smith!

Cool, thanks for the info. I've never had anything graded so I wasn't sure if it was even worth sending in. Mine looks just like this one, centering too, so its good to know it is probably around a 9.

Yes it does have that same mark. That was making me hesitant as well but I gave it a chance. Thanks for all the advice everyone it is much appreciated
