In your guys opinion, does Beckett do a good job with vintage? That's what I was trying to get at?

I've never had a problem with BVG. Have used all of them with similar results. If you're fed up with PSA, why not try something different.

I think BVG does a great job with vintage.

Depends on what you're fed up with PSA about. Just inconsistency in grading? Why do you want the cards slabbed instead of just raw? Are you willing to pay $13 a card and wait for more months than PSA to get them into an inferior (market price) grader's slab?
Why not have BCCG grade them for a few bucks a card to "confirm" they're not trimmed? Why not just leave them raw?

As much as I do like the BVG grading I don't care for the BCCG product as it is too confusing. They actually do a decent job too, for what they do. But to have another grading scale is and always will be a problem, imo. That said I think they do very well with it at the mass merchants, so as a company, it is probably a good move. I don't think they market their vintage grading very well and that is one reason their cards don't bring the money. They have a stigma from an old policy concerning some sheet cut cards. Not sure about that situation today. All in my most humble opinion, others will differ. (To be transparent they have advertised here before.)

The main reason I mentioned BCCG is that they're much cheaper than BVG. The slabs are flimsy like old PSA slabs, but if the guy just wants them graded with Mint, Near Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good, and Poor or better grades, he can save a bunch of money using BCCG. Especially if he doesn't care about resale value.
In his boat, I'd probably wait for SGC to do another $5 special and send them all there at that time. Uniformity and respectable.

I remember seeing a recent SGC 30 that sold off our board...great seller, fairly priced card, all that...but my thought was if I could get the grader that gave that card a 30, I'd send my whole collection in today.

If you have a valuable card and it is not PSA or SGC graded I will probably suspect you sent it to another company for a reason. Or went to PSA and didn't like what you heard. I realize that may be completely irrational and a bias but I suspect I am not the only one who feels that way.

Frankly I like how SGC looks. Like a lot of other people.
