Default Sgc vs psa for card grading

Hi everyone, I am new here and was wondering if you guys could give me some advice as to whether I should use SGC or PSA for my card grading. I do realize that for resale PSA tends to generate a higher return but I am looking for accuracy in the grading. Any advice would be great. Thanks Jim

If accuracy is your wish, I agree SGC would probably be the most consistent. PSA can be very tough on certain cards, and lax on others.

There is absolutely no doubt sgc is a better grading company
The guy that owns sgc was a former card doctor
He knows all the tricks and is completely legitimate now
Psa gives favors to dealers and big collectors
Ive been collecting cards only for 60 yrs
I have hundreds of sgc 84s that are nicer thsn psa 8s
Psa sucks and im not kidding you
They are busy and have 20 yr old kids that look at cards for 30 seconds and grade
Sgc cards will probably be the standard in some yrs.
Psa is too inconsistent
If u are a true collector and want to be proud of your quality sgc is much better
More honest and much more professional
If u dont believe me...pull up cards on vcp and look for yourself

I think conflating "most accurate" with "sgc will probably be the standard", you're kind of fooling yourself. The PSA Set Registry is the biggest factor among all three grading companies. It's the 30 million card elephant in the space.

I've collected cards for decades
Psa is very very good at grading cards.
But if u send a sgc card....in there holder forget about a cross....its business not honest but I understand....mostly false pride.
A card is what it is. Drop the ego.
Dont penalize the card owner

I have about 175 cards of a pre war set
130 sgc 45 psa
All 8s and sgc 88s
I'm not prejudice
I ask anyone to contact me and compare the two companies in grading
Sgc is far better
I'll pay for your plane bill...pre war

I'll make it more interesting for you.
I had a person who is an absolute expert on card grading...been in the business for 4 decades
He said my sgcs were absolutely fantastic
He thought they were 8.5s for the most part not is
I called this man and was lucky to reach him
I don't know him at all except from one phone call...he came to my home and viewed the cards and said I've never seen anything like these cards.
He said...these cards are special.
He took a few of them to the convention in Cleveland and psa would not cross one of them.
