Default PSA vs SGC post war cards

Seems like a substantial difference in pricing especially in grades 8 and up with PSA having higher prices. I thought sgc was quite reputable with post war cards too.

-Honestly, i don't know why post-war pricing favors PSA. There's the annual membership fee, but that's artificial gatekeeping. They also have the registry thing, a couple of registry holders can bid up and drive prices.

SGC used to be a bit easier on centering issues with their grades, but i read somewhere they had tightened that up. At this point i haven't read anything that provides a logical answer to the difference other than collector whim and preference.

one example of this would be 1955 Topps Dick Groat. In psa 8 its selling for around 1.2k while a sgc 88 8 sells between 450-700. The centering issue of sgc may be a factor but sgc has only graded 3 at this level and psa has 9.

I generally don't sell cards, so which company generates higher card values does not matter to me.

But....from a purely asthetic perspective, SGC's holders, with their black background, are much more visually appealing.

SGC is the best for prewar, goudey, t-cards etc. the auction houses prefer SGC for these early gems.

SGC is also counterfeited. PSA is just more faked due to its popularity.
