    Beckett, PSA., KSA...??

    Like to get my Sidney Crosby young gun graded. Which company is the most reputable to go with?

    Wrong forum. Not KSA. For the card I'd probably go BGS. The odds of a PSA 10 are long.

    BGS for modern cards (1989-present)
    SGC for vintage (pre-war)
    PSA for everything else

    BGS would be the way to go for the Sid YG

    I disagree that BGS is the way to go, even for modern cards. I think this is "old school" thinking. Here is some data:

    Last 10 PSA 10 Crosby YG's sold on EBay

    Average Sales Price: $1035.00

    Last 10 9.5 Crosby YG"s sold on EBay

    Average Sales Price $900.00

    Grading:

    BGS 9.5's or higher, 72% of population submitted

    PSA 10, 74% of population submitted.


    Your odds appear relatively the same. And if you can get a PSA 10 over a BGS 9.5, why wouldn't you??

    Now the caveat to that will be the condition of your card. Because if you can get a BGS 10, that is DEFINITELY the way to go, but those odds are tougher at only 5%. But they sell for closer to $2,000.

    PSA 10's outsell BGS 9.5's ALL DAY LONG. Look at Matthews SP Authentic Future Watch RC /999 for a recent example. It's not even close.

    So me being from Canada, how easy/hard is it to send cards to get graded in the states?

    Is KSA even on the radar to get cards graded?

    I'd caution that far more people submit to BGS than PSA, and my bet is that the people that do submit to PSA do it more selectively. It may be harder to get a 10 PSA Crosby YG than the simple percentages show.

    I will agree that for the major rookies, that a PSA 10 will outsell a BGS 9.5. Casual fans are going to be attracted to the "10" without understanding the nuances involved.

    Edit: $2000 is on the low wend fora Crosby 10 BGS YGs.

    It's fairly easy to get your cards graded. Shipping will be expensive though. I also get dinged on duties. They get refunded, but it's a pain. Local stores may be able to do submissions for you also.

    I would not use KSA. They just don't have the reputation in the industry to add value to your cards.

    Anybody on here from Edmonton Alberta, know of any local card dealer that would ship cards to get graded on your behalf?

    Wayne's sports cards doesn't do it here in edmonton
