I was thinking about buying some BCCG graded vintage cards. Does anyone have any horror stories with these cards or do they pretty much come back the minimum gade that the lable says.

1. Buy the card, not the label
2. BCCG grades are very different from PSA, SGC, etc. A BVG 7 is equal to a PSA or SGC 3...

Don't do it! Stick with PSA, SGC, BVG/BGS. There are several threads already about BCCG that you can search for and read. BCCG was created as a "low-cost alternative" for tv shopping networks and discount retailers.

What about a BCCG 9? If I cross it over to PSA or SCG is it going to be NM or is there a chance it could be lower?

if you can get them cheap enough, go ahead, but remember the true grade you are buying. As mentioned above, a BCCG 7 is only a 3 to PSA and SGC.

Their grading level starts at 5....so a BCCG 9 might very well be a BVG 4. As others said....completely discount the # on the holder, analyze ONLY the card and buy the card. DO NOT look at the holder when buying it. The best thing about the holder is that it will tell you it's not a fake and probably not altered. The grade itself means very little, except confusion. Pre-war vintage cards really should not be in a BCCG holder. good luck!! (btw, I am very Pro-BVG as I think they do a great job and for my money are light years ahead of PSA, but that is just me)

Default In this world you usually get what you pay for.....

Unless you're trying to get a great deal --- then you usually get ripped off.

I would also be weary of the authenticity and possibility of alteration of any card in a BCCG holder. A friend of mine bought a couple of post-war cards in that slab, tried to crossover and came back as trimmed. Don't buy anything BCCG without expecting the worst outcome.
