Default PSA vs SGC Poll

I have used both PSA & SGC for grading my cards and I really don't have a preference. If you wanted to have your card graded so that you could sell it, which grading company do you think would bring you the highest return on your card?

Howard - there is no answer to the question as you've phrased it - currently each of the 3 options brings top dollar for different types of cards. If you ask about a specific card or a specific issue, you'll get a more meaningful response.

Default My take

SGC - for pre-war (41s playball and back)
PSA - vintage (50s, 60s, to 75)
BGS - modern (76s to date)


Seems to be best for return, but as many has said in threads past.


Buy the cards not the holder.



Ive found over/under graded in all

but they all do a fine job.




Edit: per request of definitions

I don't know anything about Pre-War, but PSA by far in vintage and Beckett for Modern cards.

John,

What are your definitions of "pre-war", "vintage", and "modern"?

In my mind, there could be quite a bit of overlap between pre-war and vintage.

BTW, somewhat off topic, and I know Howard wasn't looking for this, but I've purchased many cards from him on eBay, and definitely a really good seller. Really fast shipping, and when I asked to return a card for a defect that was in the scan which I missed, he was very courteous and let me return the card, refunding my payment.

I voted for PSA because the question was so general. Anything after 1933 to the present, it's PSA all the way. From 1887-1919 it's SGC.

I am surprised that PSA is leading the count on this poll.

For postwar, I use PSA.

For prewar, I use primarilly use SGC. But for more mainstream prewar cards like T205, T206, T207, and Goudey I would go with PSA.
