IMO, it would sell for higher than a PSA 8 price, maybe reaching close to $1M....It wouldn't smell what a PSA 9 would go for, not even close, period...

Agree with this. Here is a hypothetical for other members on the board since Ryan proposed the potential idea. It is no secret that the board majority lies heavily in favor with SGC, not even close. If you had this Mantle in a PSA 9, would you cross it to SGC because of how nice their holders look? Or, would you keep it in the PSA holder because of financial reasons, honest answers please....

Easy answer...I wouldn't even consider crossing it. Then again, I don't have a rooting interest in any of the professional grading companies. Do I like SGC's holders? Sure. Do I like PSA well enough? Sure. I even like Beckett, if the price is right. It is the card within for me.

Bingo! Case in point, two nice 1914 Ty Cobb Cracker Jacks, say exmt, one in a PSA holder the other SGC's. Which one beautifies the card and which one is sort of blah? And while it may only be a temporary situation, any cards today sent to PSA might be returned graded about the time of the first Mars landing.

Of course not, no one cares about the aesthetics of the holder that much. No ones arguing that PSA doesn't bring more coin though

I think most people on this thread are in agreement with what most people are saying. When I'm buying cards I don't care what holders they are in SGC/PSA/BVG. Im buying the card and use grade as a guide not the primary reason I am buying that card. I use SGC to grade cards I'm submitting for all the reasons I stated above. But if I had any real high end cards I was planning on selling (ie PSA 9 Mantle) it's PSA all the way.

But the cards I have range under $250. I think the ROI people are talking about applies to my collection as well so I'll go with SGC.

Last year Memory Lane had 2 1949 Bowman Jackie Robinson rookie cards in their summer auction. The PSA 9 sold for 47k. The SGC 96 sold for 110k. Collectors will look at the card and pay more for exceptional cards in SGC holders.

There was an ebay coupon code recently where a buyer would save up to $100 on a $500 purchase, so I decided the time was right to grab up a pretty nice Mantle. In the end, I was down to looking at 1964 cards graded 7 by both PSA and SGC.

If I recall correctly, the SGC was priced at about $470 and the lowest PSA one was $625, with most being at $675 and way above that. If you look at these two cards, they have very similar top-to-bottom centering and the corners of the SGC card are much sharper overall.

To me it was absolutely worth it going with SGC and paying a minimum of $150 less for the card. When the time comes to sell him in the future, though, I will have to figure things out to get a better return like you seemingly always get with PSA cards.

Both SGC & PSA are great, PSA because of their Registry gets more for post-war, but I see little difference in pre-war prices. Holders are both solid, although I hate the PSA floating card one. I lean a bit towards SGC from a lot of what’s been said in the thread of their accuracy and communications, but can’t go wrong with either.
