Default Crossing Sgc to psa

If you feel the card meets the criteria for a 5 it will probably cross. If you want it to cross to the 5.5 it currently has this may be more difficult as psa is fairly strict on half grades. At least for me.

Never, never, never send a card in for crossing in another companies holder. Crack it out and send it.

1972 Topps 55 Archie Manning SGC 7 Crossed to PSA 7
1933 Sport Kings 38 Bobby Jones Golf Auth SGC Crossed to PSA AUTH

All the rest I've cracked out.
1952 Topps #54 Leo Kiely SGC 4 became PSA 4
1952 Topps #68 Cliff Chambers SGC 4.5 became PSA 5
1952 Topps #195 Minnie Minoso SGC 3 became PSA 3
1968 Topps #66 Casey Cox SGC 1.5 became PSA 5 (had marker on it that PSA didn't catch or give a qualifier to)

crossing over a 30 dollar card isnt the same thing as crossing over a 500 dollar card..

i would think the low value cards are much much easier to cross over...but i have no evidence of it..i just think that a business would have no downside from taking 10 dollars from you or whatever to cross over a 20 dollar card to a point to encourage it..without watering down the grade because the card at issue could have 5000 more added to the POP and noone would complain that had the card...

I was ready to respond to Frank's post, asking for his reasoning.
I now see 1952boyntoncollector's response and can see his reasoning.
So, Frank, do you see it the same as 1952boyntoncollector?

I still think itís pathetic, unless youíre a registry collector. SGC isnít some fly-by-night company or has problematic issues like a GAI. If the card is in Excellent Plus condition (70/5.5), you should be happy about the fact that respected professionals authenticated the card and believed it deserving of a mid-high grade....

Bottom line is that PSA is more respected and someday my kids will have to sell this stuff so I'm just more comfortable with PSA.

I know which card you're referring to. If that dealer took PayPal or credit cards, it would have been mine. Someone else bought it. Very nicely centered example and great price.

And I don't see how Frank's post relates to Jake's. I think it is probably innate in a grading company, even if subconsciously, to want to appear tougher than its competitor. It's best they didn't even know their competitor's position.

And after you spend the money to cross it, even assuming it crosses, what's your gain on a PSA 5 over an SGC 5.5? I would think not much.
