Default Getting 68 Topps 3D graded.PSA or SGC ?

I'm thinking about getting some 1968 Topps 3D cards graded. Cards are very nice on front, some have very small amounts of paper loss on blank backs. Who should I use to grade them, SGC or PSA ? Who is more harsh because of the backs ? Does PSA have higher value as I will sell some of them. Have used SGC in past but never PSA.

I have a set and one of the 3 proof cards, plus a wrapper and easel. About half of mine are graded, all PSA, but I am not a graded collector and just bought them that way. Would guess PSA would be best for value but others may differ. One reason for grading beyond value may be protection

Not sure which ones you have. Maloney and Fairly are the most common, although the dugout versions of both usually have a premium. The Clemente is the most expensive one to get in the set of 12. And there are degrees of scarcity for the others that affect value. The B Robinson prototype and the 3 proof cards are also very costly

And the backs can affect value. Some are blank and others have stamped backs that vary. Olbermann has an SCD article on the different front and back variants. Dave Hornish may also have an article on them on his blog. Will try to post links later

I will say a couple are prone to cracking even in holders. Swoboda comes to mind, where it starts cracking across the middle on most, if not all examples I've seen. A couple of other subjects have little "pull marks" sometimes as well, so it's easy to get hammered on grading.
