grading of cards
so how much value is gained by having your better cards graded. and how much better is one company over the other three? bgs, psa, mga. grant it the cost of having the service done is vast between beckett and mga. like 8 bucks a card and the turn around in getting card back is vast. mga does it within a week of getting the order while beckett takes three weeks to get into the system then depend on how fast u want them back can take up 20 or more days.

I go by the double rule. 9 is X1, 9.5 goes X2, 10 goes X4. Hope this helps2010 Topps Platinum Football SuperCollectorColt McCoy SuperCollector

In my limited experience, grading doesn't add very much. Although, my experience is strictly from an Aaron Rodger rookie card viewpoint. I got his Score Glossy rookie card, graded a 9 by Beckett, for $5.99 off EBay. I am not sure what the Beckett value of the card is but it has to be a couple bucks I'd guess. Right now, I just found Rodgers Bowman rookie card, graded a 9 again, for $18.99 buyout. Even a Walter Payton rookie card, graded a 8 PSA, is going for less than $200 on EBay. I believe that is below Beckett value. I don't know, take that for what it's worth.Sports enthusiast. Green Bay Packer and Milwaukee Brewer fan.

it depends on what the card gets graded at. I wouldn't even send one in unless it looked perfect. If its not at least a 9.0 its not worth it unless it vintage

You also need to take the population of a specific grade for a specific card into consideration. Even with newer products the lower the population the higher the premium.
