Seller list this card way under value but before I or anyone could buy it a ebay member tips them off as to how much there card might be worth. Read the questions on the bottom, way to go Dave : (

A BCCG 9 sold for $800 and 10's sell for 2x. So that's a $1,500+ card no matter what the cross over is.

I think you might be confusing BGS with BCCG. Two different grading scales, two different markets, same company.

Nope: http://cgi.ebay.com/OPC-79-WAYNE-GRETZKY-RC-GRD-9-near-10-BCCG-Beckett-/220789641759?pt=FR_CA_Sports_Trading_Cards&hash=item336816921f#ht_500wt_1156

Jordan 9's go for 600-700 and 10's 1,000-1,200 so a Gretzky 10 would be $1,500+

You are VERY confused about the difference in grading standards and about BCCG!

That service is not meant for high end cards although some are in those holders. It's strictly a business proposition and one that some Beckett employees probably don't care for, but have to live with. It's business...... From their website-

Beckett Collector’s Club Grading Is Here!
Now, collectors can build a quality graded-card collection that is both attractive and affordable! Beckett, the leader in third-party sports card grading, is excited to bring you Beckett Collector’s Club Grading (BCCG), a new sports card grading service appealing to all sports fans and collectors. Available at a retail store near you, BCCG offers affordability in a top-quality graded-card product!

Another Level of Sports Card Grading with Exceptional Beckett Quality
BCCG features a modified numerical grading scale, with each level representing a range of standard conditions (Mint or better, Near mint or better, Excellent or better, etc.). So, at a glance, the condition of the card is unmistakable.

We understand the importance of protecting your cards. Every BCCG-graded card is sealed and protected in a superior clear plastic holder whose design is based on the top-quality Beckett Grading Services (BGS) holder. Each holder features a white BCCG label with assigned grade, card serial number and precise card description obtained directly from Beckett’s all-inclusive online database of sports cards. A fast and easy BCCG Card Lookup is available for card verification at the No. 1 online source for card collecting products, services and information – www.beckett.com.

A Super Alternative to Other Grading Services
Though BCCG-graded cards are completely separate and vastly different from the premium BGS- or BVG-graded cards, the same consummate care in handling is followed and consistent industry-leading quality of grading is applied to each and every card. As a result, BCCG-graded cards provide an eye-catching secondary market alternative to other graded card products, reaching a wider audience of fans and collectors.

I guess we will have to wait and see, I would be willing to bet a BCCG 10 Gretzky will go for $1,500+ If a BCCG 10 Jordan goes for over $1,000 then how can a Gretzky RC OPC not? Just look at the completed sales. This Jordan sold for $1,450 http://cgi.ebay.com/1986-87-FLEER-MICHAEL-JORDAN-RC-BCCG-10-BGS-CENTERED-/180506462160?pt=US_Basketball&hash=item2a070607d0#ht_500wt_1156
A Gretzky OPC 9 sells for more than a Jordan 9.

I think I agree with Chris. I have never owned a BCCG card, but a bccg 9 gretzky sold for 750ish. wouldn't you expect the 10 to sell for a fair amount more? Also, isn't a 10 the "equivalent" of a bgs 9? If so, there is a ton of value in that. A BGS 9 OPC Gretzky sells for 3k+, I believe.

I speak of value for resale. I think that you would get more selling it than 999. Just my opinion.

Okay, but as soon as it goes up for auction you will see that you could have bought that card and have made a pretty penny. I'll be back.

this is a great example of why alot of board members don't like beckett.

the card may sell for psa 8 or psa 9 prices, but the buyer will be getting an EXMT card. totally misleading.

A bccg 10 isn't necessarily the equivalent of anything. There are a few other factors in play, but for the most part they are grading the cards based on it's "true" condition without factoring centering. Basically, any card that comes straight from a pack should qualify as a bccg 10, and the varying grades would depend on how well a card was taken care of by the collector.

Theoretically, a bccg 10 with perfect centering should cross-over as a 10 to any major grading service. It probably doesn't always work out that way though.
