Default Card grading discussion

I'd Like to see everyones thoughts on:
who is the best?
what slabs you like the best?
who gives you the most bang for your buck?
in general its an open discussion so talk about anything

I like bgs the best for any modern day cards
i like sgc's slabs the best but i trust the bgs slabs
Im gonna go with bgs as they give subgrades and also grade the autograph

I have a contest running until sunday for 1 free bgs card submission in my group sub. if you have a card you want submitted check it out

This will turn into a heated debate in know time - it's like PC vs MAC - people either love or hate one or the other...

Personally I prefer the PSA case from a stackable and size point of view as I think BGS is just too bulky but I prefer the BGS case for security (and the sleeve) as obviously PSA's are easier to tamper with - but either way you should be educated before spending a bunch of cash on a graded card. 98% of the time you can spot a tampered with PSA case if you know what you are doing.

My personal PC is as follows - these are the cards put away for my kids:

PSA 10's for anything not autographed (so vintage or any just base RC's of players)
BGS 9.5/10 for anything autographed rc's

Other then that I don't care either way - as anything else I have graded that doesn't fall into those categories is just tradebait.

I like the PSA slabs but i dont trust how easy people can open and close them

I think they are all shady and I HATE grading, but to encapsulate cards for protection, I think that SGC's case is the best with BGS being a close second.

SGC's cases are my absolute favorite slabs but, i always come back to the subgrades on a bgs slab. if those 2 companies would combine id be a happy guy.

I like the actual grading plaque with BGS much better, too. Looks much neater and nicer.
