Default Bccg vs raw

So let's say I have 10,000+ 50's/60's/70's stars rookies high #'s, etc in mid grade {vg-ex/mt} {psa 3-6} Bccg will grade them for $2/per with 10k + order size. do you think I am better off getting bccg grade or sell raw. I am not talking about stuff that I would obviously send to PSA {like mantle, mays, clemente, aaron, etc} One upside to Bccg is obviously it would eliminate any question about authenticity and altered.

I disregard BCCG grades...they are meaningless to me.

Buy the card. Anything else is uncivilized.

If your major goal is preservation then it has some value.

If your goal is to sell then I'd keep them raw. BCCG is not taken seriously in the marketplace.

One advantage of raw is their mystery. People will buy them hoping to get that EX or EX-MT grade. When they buy a BCCG 6 or 7 they already know the bad news.

I don't believe BCCG grading eliminates any question of authenticity or the card being altered. I tend to by pass anything graded by them.

BCCG is a joke.

I agree. Do not waste your money on bccg grading. Especially if you plan to sell the cards.

I think you could preserve your cards adequately for WAY less than $20,000

I'll put them in toploaders and penny sleeves and weed out any fakes for 10,000. I'll even cover the supplies.

Turnaround time variable.
Payment taken in trade or partial trade by arrangement.

When I said BCCG fpr preservation I meant the just the valuable ones. Nobody's gonna put 10k cards in BCCG.

What I would do for myself would be penny sleeves in top-loader for anything worth $50 or more and the rest in cardsavers.

For sale I'd PSA the good ones and sell the rest raw.
