Default 1975 Topps Yount RC BVG 9.5 to PSA Crossover Experiment

Hey Folks,

I want to get your opinion on a (possible) first-time crossover attempt for me. I just got this 1975 Topps Yount RC, BVG 9.5 Gem Mint (old case), and am considering sending it to PSA to see if I can get a 10. I've compared it to some PSA 10s and it looks good to me, but what say you? If the back looks a little off center, they're all that way.

From what I understand the odds are greatly against you on this type of crossover. To me, anything 9 and above looks the same anyway.

Would the print spot in the "B" hurt it?

One of the 10's I compared it to had the same print mark a little higher and to the left, so I don't think so

I think that is a huge roll of the dice. The back is off center and PSA has gotten really tough in the last couple of years. I think the odds of landing a 10 are really high. I would leave in Beckett slab.

Top right corner appears just slightly soft too. I don't think this will cross ever. If you crack out it could be PSA's idea of an 8 or a kiss of death like trimmed or a resub loop of minsizerq. I would leave as is.

The best you'll do with PSA is a straight 10. After that, it's 9 or less since the highest half grade PSA issues is 8.5.

Odds are you drop a grade or more switching over.

If you want a PSA slab, switch it over. If you want the grade, leave it as is.

If you switch, let us know the outcome!

Jason, you'll never know unless you try. The centering, color, and picture focus registry are worthy of a PSA 10. Go for it! That is, after you ascertain the best way to SAFELY extract a card from a BVG holder.

Here's wishing you the very best, bro, in your experiment. ---Brian Powell

Find someone politically connected and have them try in the holder.

...Go into the smallest room/closet in your house , with really good lighting. WEAR SAFETY GLASSES....I always crack Becketts at the top right corner , using long-handled bolt cutters.
..P.S.---That appears to be a newer label ; as there are no sub-grades front nor back...
