I why curious why there are users on the board that reference cards by the 10 point scale and not the SGC 100 point scale. I know the 10 point scale is more commonly used but as a SGC person I would think you would want to reference the 100 scale and get the rest of the general public collectors use to it.

One less keystroke to type. Plus, it's kind of silly since it's not uniformly integral at the higher end. I.e., an EX/MT 6 is 80, NM 7 is 84, NM/MT 8 is 88, why wouldn't MINT 9 be 92?

Its easiest way to tell the member of the 100 point scale and introduce the scale if 100 point scale card feature like the member automatically member like the 100 point scale.Whats your opinion?

If the member uses the 100 point scale and another member who was not introduced to the 100 point scale does not use the 100 point scale then why use the 100 point scale if one was not introduced?

If you understand, say "understand".
If you don't understand, say "don't understand".
But if you understand and say "don't understand".
How do I understand that you understand? Understand!

Back to the original question, 1-10 is far easier to talk about and a lot easier to understand. One of the few things I really think they should drop. The fact SGC added the 1-10 scale on the slabs pretty much sums it up the other scales usefulness.
