The higher prices in higher grades in PSA holders are mainly due to registry collectors, imo. They are what they are though. PSA vs SGC vs BVG......choices are good for collectors and the hobby in general. Overall all three companies do a good job. I have my preferences just as everyone else has theirs. best regards and happy holidays...

Here is a card I consigned with PWCC last month. It had a final sell price of just under $500 (SMR value=$1,100).



Same card as a PSA 9 sold last year for $1,400. That is the main reason I prefer PSA over SGC. I don't know of ANY card collector who likes to leave that much money on the table.

Seems to me that the person who bought the SGC 96 and saved $900 over the PSA 9 example made a good choice. I don't know of ANY card collector who wouldn't like that much extra money in his pocket.

Couldn't a PSA Registry collector just mail the SGC card to PSA and probably have it end up in a PSA 9 holder?

Why is it that the PSA registry collector is portrayed as insane and pays multiples of a cards value.
But an SGC registry collector is portrayed as level headed and doesn't pay above market levels?

My thoughts are from multiple threads and not just this one.
And for what its worth I have 6 or 7 sets on the PSA registry & about the same on the SGC registry.
I like both companies and utilize them both, and i try to obtain everything on the cheap

Then you need to stay away from SGC, because apparently they don't hold their value.

No. Most collectors believe that there is a bias in crossing over cards from competing holders.

Just out of curiosity, what would a PSA 8 or 8.5 of the card sell for?

'8's typically bring around $300 and some change, and the lone 8.5 sold for around $500 2 years ago.
