What kind of results have you had crossing sgc to psa? What kind of results have you had crossing bvg to psa?

Assuming cards are left in competitor holders and not cracked out.
Since you seem to prefer PSA, I would just submit to PSA Iand have some patience. What you propose seems irrational.

I have an auction this weekend but maybe when I'm caught up I'll do so. A number of members have seen my method, it takes about 20 seconds. It's not subtle, but unless you're a complete klutz, it's very safe for the card. I've cracked dozens, and oddly the worse the grading company the tougher their slabs (Think PRO, Gem Mint, FGS and all those goofy companies) Beckett is the hardest of the big three but the same method can be used on all holders. If I tried to describe it I think it would sound much harder or more dangerous than it is.

I typically just clip the corners off diagonally (wire cutter pliers - my dad use to call them dikes) and then slide a knife blade in the slit and work it from there on both top corners.

Haven't tried the new PSA Flip but all others seem to work fine... takes just a minute or two

similar to my method but I mistrust clippers because sometimes they cause the slab to shatter unpredictably.

Default SGC to PSA success?

Great thread -- I was just gonna ask a similar question to the board. I prefer to have PSA for my postwar slabs, and have a couple that I'd like to cross from SGC to PSA specifically. Would only try with cards that seem worthy.

My question is, can anyone estimate their success rate in crossover from SGC to PSA with reasonably worthy cards? 50% was said above, for example.

I don't have the guts to crack out cards with value above a few hundred dollars for fear they'll never get back into comparable holders. Below are two examples I'm entertaining for crossover.

The more real-world experience and comments from the board, the better. Thanks much in advance.

Maybe it's your scans, but I think the Jackie has a great shot of getting a 6 from PSA, while the Mantle might get EX due to the lower left corner wear (or shadow in picture?) along with the misregistration. It could very well get a 6 though. I would say both are worth trying on a straight crossover. But I'd probably do it at the National and if they don't cross on equal review, talk to the team and see what grade they would have crossed at.

My last crossover rate from SGC to PSA wasn't good, like 1 out of 5. Trust me, I only sent in cards I honestly thought pretty much locks. With all my years of collecting, studying, scrutinizing, I thought they would all make the cross. Heck if I know. G'luck, try not to blow too much money.

Yup, communication industry lingo. It's short for diagonal pliers.

Default Thanks for the input

Thanks John & 100backstroke above for input on SGC to PSA crossing.

Agree 100% that the Jackie looks the part of a "6" in-hand as well, and it's well-centered for the issue. The Mantle -- although I wouldn't be surprised if I saw it in a PSA 6 holder -- may just not have enough going for it to get into a PSA 6 holder as a crossover.

Where I have had my best success with PSA is with exceptionally well-centered cards. Not a crossover story, but I bought a very well-centered PSA 7 Jordan RC off Ebay, and I genuinely thought it was nicer than that. Eventually got around to sending it for review with a bunch of other stuff I was submitting, hoping for a bump to 7.5. Wasn't optimistic as PSA seemed to be in the midst of toughening up on their grading at the time. The right lower corner was going to sink the review, I thought. I still can't believe it, but they bumped it to an 8. It made me suspect that with a very well-centered card, they may be very forgiving of other modest flaws that would otherwise be fatal for a lesser centered card.

Just my 2 cents, and could very well be wrong, but that same scenario has played out with a couple of other raw submissions since. Maybe food for thought, and I will only be sending them well-centered cards for possible crossover as a result.
