Hmmms I thought id make this thread so everyone can have and endless debait of goods nd bads of bgs/psa so i copied these convos from Ebaygarbage thread =D @ozenigma @garyis2000 @killerred09 @smpratte @darkrai @fourthstartcg @milhouse @xuzu @mini @missingno @hisoka107 and anyone else lol.
I will go to war with yoll on this subject, because I am perfectionist, and will friggen go insain in my brain thinking of a lesser ting.
And this, pokemonsyndicate, is why we use PSA…
Eh bgs 10 slaughters psa. Muhaahahahah
I want to transfer my charizard, but risking damaging is to risky.
Its all to do with subgrades, bgs can make mistakes sometimes to, but they dont punish mint cards to a 9. They give it 9.5 gem mint. And depending on the sub grades you can usually cross over to psa 10 like raywuaza tcg did with his mewtwo shining bgs 9.5
And I already sent some amazing gems to gary to go to Bgs. And the gold stars I sent are better condition then the ones I got psa 10s on. So it would be a waiste to send to psa. But will see what the testing of bgs watere brings. If one gets a pristine 10 it will be amazing. If not then a 9.5 will do until I get a 10. But I have some awesome gold starsf in store that is off centered and doesn’t deserve to be punished sinc there gem mint, I don’t want a 9 grade hanging over dem.
I will give you my heart + my kidneys for any MINTY FRESH Holo No Rarities you have.
I can’t help but think this is a flawed way of thinking.
It may have harsher requirements, but being a PSA 10 does not mean it is any less desirable than a BGS 10.
Well yes that is many peoples opinions. However I don’t think that way anymore. Especially since gary sent in 30 1st ed shadowless and not one of them got a gold label, let alone black.
Also bgs mint 9 grade is horrible. Its not very good. Its in most cases worse then psa 9.
That’s okay though to those that want to score a psa 10, I understand since its a happy medium. But also, the reason I think you should grade your collection as bgs 10 is because your waisting them on psa when you will probably get the black label on 80% of your cards man. But then again, you could always cross them over. like English is understandable because none would even have a collection if they tried to get 10s at bgs, so pointing a 9 is completely irrelevant to the reason why people grade with psa.
Edit: this sounds silly now i look back on it, and its only a opinion of personal experience.
The reason is because most collectors are English collectors, and they want a 10 on there cards, which is possible at psa, but not possible at bgs. The reason why they grade there japanese cards at psa instead of bgs is because again… Easier.
However if you get a truely mint card with some japanese, I think the centering should decide where you send it. Because did you see Gary’s bgs zard… It is a bit off centered hence the subgrade but it didn’t get punished because its probably the only copy that is truly pristine in the world. But with japanese you have the minty better quality on your side, so why not send to bgs and get a gold or black label instead of having a perfect card punished by psa down to a 9 which there is so many of now around.
