I have about 10 cards that I want to get graded in order to sell them. Beckett is in my backyard and they are having a grading open house at the end of the month, which removes my hesitation to mail the cards. However, I wondered if there is a better company to use, for whatever the reason, that using company A vs. company B and getting the best value out of the cards.
Is there any perception that having a PSA grade is better than Beckett or vice versa. Is there someone else I should be looking at?
Two are MJ rookies and another is the Bird/Irving AS/Johnson 1981 Rookie, so some key cards that I want to make sure get me maximum return.
If Becket is ok, the two Jordans are "pre-graded" by Beckett as 8 and 8.5...should I present them blind or keep them in those sleeves. Would there be any reason for the grades to differ this time around?
This is one of the better grades I have gotton back.....
But one thing to make sure before you send any in, check them with a fine tooth comb, nic's on corners, edge's, surface, borders, look really hard to find anything wrong with them, one little thing will lower the grade, once slabbed, thats it, its marked! Goodluck!
