Default Beckett or PSA Grading? Please help

OK got a couple cards I would love to get graded. I got a few questions if anyone can help me. One is worth quite a bit and the other isn't as much but still not bad. My question is who do you guys think is the best to send them to and does PSA do thicker cards also? Please list you favorite and why?

PSA charges a membership fee that you have to have in order to get cards graded by them. BGS is the way to go IMO either way and they have a better system with the subgrades on newer cards. I dont deal with vintage though but if you have a lot of vitage cards to get graded, I have always heard that PSA is the way to go. BGS has good specials most months too. This month you can get as many cards as you want graded at the 5 day level for only $12 with or without an auto which is usually $2 more per auto. Thats a good deal this month

Yeah that is a good deal - The cards are the Durant 07-08 auto and a Michael Jordan UD BLACK Trophy Patch auto (avatar card)

I just talked with a PSA rep the other day because I'm working on a near vintage set (71-72) and was having some trouble with their order form.

With PSA you have to pay a membership. But when you do, you get so many free grades. For the Platinum (the one I'm getting), you get 15 free grades but I'm not sure of the turnaround. After that, you pay $14 a piece. The Gold, you only get like 6 free grades. Another problem with PSA is, if you choose not to get a membership, you pay more depending on the value of the card and with no membership, you can't just get regular grades.

Anyway, in your case, I'd go with BGS.

I think Beckett sounds like the way to go - I would have to ship with INSURANCE since I would be sending my JORDAN - I think it would be worth getting SLABBED if nothing else to protect it!

OK ANOTHER QUESTION

When Jordan was signing the cards he was using silver ink. He went so fast that the card he signed before mine hadn't dried and there is a little line of silver ink on the back you can see but not very big (I say I got one auto plus part of another LOL) I wonder if or how much they would knock off for that because I don't want to try to get it off

I would guess that would be a problem with the surface. Show the back so we can see just how bad it is because it will affect the overall grade a lot if it is in fact very bad.

Yea I had a hard signed card graded that had just the smallest spot of stray ink and that affected my auto grade. Instead of a 10 it knocked it down to an 8.

"you can't just get regular grades." What does this mean?

It means what it says. Here's a screen shot of the bottom half of their non-member submission form.



You have "Express" which is for cards $500 to $1,999 for $35 a card, custom, reholder and autograph card grading and authentication.

You can't send your, I don't know, Topps Chrome Mark Sanchez non-auto RC to them for grading unless you're in their "Collector's Club". Then, you can get regular, non-auto grades.

Here are the scans of the back

This is the whole back you can see the silver ink on the bottom right



Here is a CLOSE UP shot - I am going to call UD and see what they say about this?



Sorry I couldn't get the pic bigger
