OK, so I was pretty happy with this....

I opened the box and on top was my Stockton RC...
It was graded a 9! With subs of 9.5, 9, 9, 8.5

Beneath that was my LeBron Topps RC.
It was graded a 9. Subs of 9.5, 9.5, 9, 9

So good so far, then to the 86 Fleer Bird.
It was graded a 9! With subs of 9.5, 9, 9, 9

And last, I had my vintage 75-76 Topps Jabbar/Barry/McAdoo graded an 8 by Beckett Vintage Grading.

So, all in all, I was extremely pleased. The cards all increase in value now.

The Bird was worth $30 raw. Graded 9 it books at $160.
The LeBron was $20 raw. Graded 9 it books at $50.
The Stockton was $25 raw. Graded 9 it books at $50.
The Topps Scoring Leader card was $15 raw. I don't care what it books at! :icon_roll

Everyone was naysaying on getting them graded because of the whole "depreciation" aspect if you score 8 or lower, but everything went really well, and it has me thinking of sending some more to get graded. It would have been nice to have one of them grade a 9.5 gem mint, but I guess that is pretty rare, huh?

Next up?

73-74 Topps Wilt Chamberlain
88-89 Dennis Rodman RC
73-74 Topps Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

I'm thinking of sending those 3 anyway.

Anyone else had positive experiences with BGS? Cuz I am crazy pleased! :new_blueg

i've heard that psa is a better way to go with vintage cards, because bcg is too harsh....for newer cards go with bcg

THanks for the tip. I'll remember that for my vintage!! ALthough, if it is really gonna grade high (like an 8), i will go BVG again.
