    Smile BGS grades of cards coming in today

    OK. Here's the cards I have coming back from BGS today. I'll list the card name and Player's name along with the overall grade. Then I'll list the 4 subgrades so you can see if it was an average 8.5, low end 8.5, high end 8.5, etc. Then I've offered some comments based on those subgrades. If anyone sees something they like please let me know and we can work something out. At this time I would be willing to sell the cards outright or trade for other Mark Prior or Albert Pujols BGS or PSA graded cards.

    2001 UD Pros & Prospects Chipper Jones/Albert Pujols Game Bat - BGS 9.5 (9.5, 9.5, 9.5, 9 - there are only 2 9.5's in existence and I have one of them)

    (2) 2001 UD Tiger Woods RC #1 - BGS 9.5 (10, 9.5, 9, 9.5 & 10, 9.5, 9.5, 9.5)

    2002 UD Sweet Spot Classics Game Bat Don Mattingly - BGS 9.0 (8.5, 9, 9, 9)

    (2) 2002 UD Sweet Spot Classics Jersey Cal Ripken BGS 9.0 (9.5, 9, 9, 9 & 8.5, 9, 9, 9)

    2002 UD Sweet Spot Classic Game Jersey Nolan Ryan BGS 9.0 (9.5, 9, 9, 9 - this is a STRONG BGS 9 since the subcategories average out to better than 9)

    2001 Fleer Platinum RC Mark Prior BGS 9.0 (9, 9, 9, 8.5)

    2001 UD Pros & Prospects Ichiro JSY RC #'d/500 BGS 9.0 (9, 9, 9, 8.5)

    2001 SP Authentic Albert Pujols BGS 9.0 (10, 9, 9, 8.5 - I'm thinking of cracking the case and sending this to PSA to try and get a PSA 9 or PSA 10 since PSA places more emphasis on the first 2 BGS subcategories which came back pristine 10 and Mint 9 - I should have about a 90% chance of getting a PSA 9 and about a 50% chance of getting a PSA 10 since the first 2 subgrades average 9.5 which is gem mint)

    2001 UD Pros & Prospects Game Bat K. Griffey Jr./Barry Bonds BGS 9.0 (10, 9, 9, 8.5 - another STRONG BGS 9 and a possible PSA 10 candidate b/c of the average of the first 2 subcategories being 9.5 gem mint)

    2001 UD Pros & Prospect Specialty Game Jersey Gold #'d out of 25 Ichiro Suzuki RC BGS 9.0 (9.5, 8.5, 9, 9 - with only 25 of these out there the only other 2 graded came back BGS 7.5 and BGS 8.5 so I have the best graded one in existence)

    2001 UD Top Tier Drew Brees/1500 RC BGS 9.0 (9.5, 8.5, 9, 9)

    (4) 2001 UD Tiger Woods RC #1 BGS 9.0 (10, 9, 9, 9; 10, 9, 9, 9; 9.5, 8.5, 9, 9; 10, 8.5, 9, 9 - those first 2 are very good candidates to receive a PSA 10 on so I'll most likely be cracking those open to resend to PSA to get PSA 10's)

    2001 UD Pros & Prospects Albert Pujols RC JSY/500 BGS 8.5 (9.5, 8.5, 8, 9 - normally enough total points to get a BGS 9 but with the 8 sugrade the overall grade can only be half a point higher than an 8 so I got a BGS 8.5 - this is a sure PSA 9)

    2001 UD Sweet Spot Game Jersey Ichiro Suzuki BGS 8.5 (9.5, 8.5, 9, 8.5 - I wasn't sure why this didn't come back a BGS 9.0 as the 4 subgrades average 8.875 which is usually enough for a 9....if I had gotten 9, 9, 9, 8.5 that would have been a BGS 9.0 but I think b/c 2 of subcategories were 8.5 and then I had the high 9.5 that is why it was a BGS 8.5 instead of 9; this is a very good candidate for a PSA 9)

    2001 UD Pros and Prospect Then & Now Jersey Ken Griffey Jr. BGS 8.5 (9.5, 8, 9, 9 - that 8 subgrade cost me a BGS 9 as the 4 subgrades average 8.75 - this is a good PSA 9 candidate)

    1989 Score Barry Sanders RC BGS 8.5 (9, 8.5, 8.5, 9 - just one more 9 instead of an 8.5 and it would be a BGS 9 which only about 10% of this card are - this is a VERY good candidate for a PSA 9)

    2001 UD Tiger Woods RC #1 BGS 8.5 (10, 8, 8.5, 8.5 - that 8 subgrade cost me a BGS 9)

    1983 Topps Tony Gwynn RC BGS 8.0 (8, 8, 8.5, 8.5 - this is a STRONG BGS 8 which is good for a 20 year old card)

    2001 UD Golf Tour Threads Jack Nicklaus short print BGS 8.0 (9.5, 8, 8, 9 - this is a very good candidate for a PSA 9)

    1985 Topps Mark McGwire BGS 7.5 (7.5, 7, 8.5, 8.5 - a very strong BGS 7.5)

    2001 Leaf Certified Materials Ichiro Game Base/200 BGS 7.5 (10, 7, 8.5, 8.5 - if that 7 would have been an 8.0 this would have been a BGS 8.5 - this one will be going to PSA since the first 2 subcategories average a BGS 8.5 which is like a PSA 9 so I should go from a BGS 7.5 to a PSA 9 on this one)

    Well, that's it. Feel free to make any offers. As mentioned I'm only looking to sell right now or trade for other BGS or PSA Mark Prior or Albert Pujols cards

    2001 SP Authentic Albert Pujols BGS 9.0 (10, 9, 9, 8.5)

    Ok that was the one I was going to bust open and send to PSA as you have a 50/50 chance of getting a PSA 10 back if those first 2 average out to 9.25 and the other subcategories are pretty high as thy are). Since the first 2 average out to 9.5 (BGS gem mint) this card probably has more like a 75% chance of coming out a PSA 10 if I sent it to PSA. Therefore I'm basing the price of the card on the BGS 9 that I got plus an upgrade due to what I think it would grade if I submitted to PSA to get a 10. If you'd like just make me an offer in cash I will mull it over to see if I would rather let it go at that price or if it would be better for me to bust the case and resubmit to PSA to get a PSA 10.

    Also, keep in mind that this is an ABOVE AVERAGE BGS 9 with the 4 subcategories grading out at an average of 9.125.

    I've actually decided to send both the 2001 SP Authentic BGS 9 and the 2001 Pros & Prospects BGS 8.5 off to PSA so I wouldn't be looking to sell those 2 until I receive them back from PSA. I would be willing to part with the Chipper Jones/Albert Pujols daul bat BGS 9.5 Gem Mint though.
