Default Bad BGS Centering Grading

Not my card (I would like it to be) but tell me how this got an 8 on centering? I just bought another card (same player, same product) that is also graded, clearly centered worse, and got a 9 on centering. Seems like a pretty obvious card to re-grade with a 9 almost guaranteed and 9.5 potential. Thoughts?

The back centering is horrible and should be an 8

Back is fine. Isn't leeway on back like 90/10 and it can still be a nine. If they even bother to look at the back.

Just grading for ya. Sure If you sent it back in raw, this card would get 9 or 9.5. somedays.

Good point, except the back centering isn't horrible.

Auto is a 10 on this card,
BGS does give it 8 or 9 if it goes off the sticker. BGS auto grading is even a bigger joke than its card grading.
Auto grade can change. Funny seeing faded and crappy looking autos in BGS 10 graded auto cases. A dealer leaves out his BGS 10 auto grade card for a few months. Auto turns to pure crap/faded. But guess what, auto grade will and always be a perfect 10 HAHAHAHA...
They should just do away with auto grade all together. PSA is smart in that they don't bother doing it. Just an easy money scam for BGS.

The centering on this is accurate.

Centering: 60/40 both ways or better on front. 80/20 or better on back. is listed for bgs 8 on beckett

Thing is if you go look at the kaepernick super on ebay beckett gave that card a 9 for centering and it is no better than this card

I agree, that is a bad grade.
