Default BGS slab crackage

Gonna bust a slabbed 9.0...no auto.
The case is scratched..chipped..etc
Subs are all 9.5..9.0..9.0..8.5

Should I just send as is and ask for reslabbing?
Or...
Bust open and do a total resubmission?
Or...
Resend as is and ask for a regrade risking the 9.0?

Its a 2007 Bowman Chrome Card...originally slabbed in 2009.
Likely has been through multiple hands.

The 8.5 is centering btw.

What say you? Any experiences?

im about to send in a few cards with a group submission. i have a graded card with a cracked case also.. the guy doing the submission told me its only like a couple bucks to reslab it... if you bust it and resubmit, it'll cost you more for sure.

Its a 1/1....will they see it in the inventory/pop report and just assign the same grades?

No, cause it could have gotten worse. I'd say scan the card at high res, confirm the centering yourself. If the 8.5 is too low, crack and resub, if its right or actually worse than 8.5, then just send it for re-slab.

guess I can always keep the old label (the 9) and do a reslab if I don't like the new final grade after the resub.

thanks for the gouge guys!

also...do you think the BGS grading measures drastically differ currently from 2009? Were they "tougher" back then? Or it's still the same?
