Anyone wanna make a case for best card, any holder? Screw the holder entirely?
Personally,

I think most PSA demands a premium for the "Name". I have found recently that their standards are becoming way too strict and SGC is more in line with that I think. Being a Robinson collector myself, I would say go with the best deal no matter the holder. I have a SGC 84 53 Topps PSA 7 49 Bowman and a BVG 6.5 55 topps. You can always cross over to SGC, but why miss out on a good deal and a good card if the opportunity presents itself You know what I mean?

This is the very argument I've been having with myself. Am I the only one who argues with himself? Thanks.

I'm not into the registry thing. And I'm not yet sure on how I want to display the cards, if at all.
I just think those SGC holders are slick. But then again these are the new shoes I just bought.

Sounds like you want the SGC holders. For me the biggest problem with SGC slabs is they mark/scratch up really easy. Because of that I keep mine in graded card sleeves.

Can't blame you, I have cards from all 3 but 99% are in SGC holders because they look amazing compared to the other 2. I usually buy raw and then have them graded. For me it is by far the cheapest way to end up with graded cards.

SGC has some amazingly cheap specials for members. I am sending in on the $5 and $8 per card specials this month.

I have zero loyalty to any grading company. PSA graded cards do command a high price for certain cards. In my collection I have cards that I had graded by psa because they are more valuable that way. I have cards graded by Beckett and sgc because I purchased them that way. I definitely can't agree with liking the way SGC holders look. They look and feel cheap. Psa is neither here nor there in terms of looks. I like Beckett look the best and it feels far superior then both.

When I'm grading I use this to decide where to send my cards.

Pre-War goes to SGC. I would say 85% of the cards in the large auction catalogs are in SGC slabs, if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me.

Modern stuff like Chrome or Finest goes to Beckett. People want a shot at that black label 10.

Everything else I use PSA. A leader and the registry does not hurt.

Seems reasonable. Still reflecting.

Now the part all the PSA people seem to leave out. They cost more to buy so yes they better sell for more. A long time seller of graded cards said the profit margin is almost exactly the same no matter what one of the big 3 you buy/sell. Yes SGC cards sell for less than PSA but that also means they are cheaper to buy.
Excellent point.
