Also the card will retain it's value when graded by a reputable company. Not saying that the 3 companies I've mentioned are perfect but they have a "history". I've never actually had cards graded by PSA buy I have purchased a lot. I prefer BGS for pre-1980 cards or cards with colored or no border and SGC for older or white bordered cards. BGS didn't seem to grade some early 70's football cards that I sent them very reasonably is why I don't send older cards to them. They did grade my 2000's that I've sent in fairly. I have heard that a board member with the screen name RUBE or something LOVES PSA.

I have had cards from 6 of these companies.CSA the worst,PRO tied for the worst.GMA not that bad actually,on the avg. overgrade some but don't grade trimmed or altered cards.GAI I guess was ok til the end.They left a lot of people high & dry with some big time cards.Then PSA & SGC nobody is perfect but they do the best they can.
