One of the reasons I like Sgc grading is because they are so strict, I feel that fact will come to bear higher values in the future when the collecting public realizes it too.

Comments / thoughts?

You and I like SGC for the same reasons. I, too, think that folks will wake up one day and realize the SGC offers a much better service than PSA. I just hope it's not for a while because I like buying stricter graded cards for less money

For low to mid-grade stuff from pre-war to today, I think there is parity. For higher grade stuff in pre-war, I think there is also some good parity. Where is gets thrown off is Mint and Gem Mint commons of low population cards and even some high grade NM/MT or MT or Gem Mint highly desirable cards. More whales are in the PSA registry. Whales attract high submitter dealers. Success of high submitter dealers attract small dealers. The more access to cards and the publicity of whales attracts new whales and junior whales. That is the cycle. The SGC registry sucks (scans and picture turning are great), just the user experience for looking at sets and adding cards etc. Along with that, they is not enough people.

On the flip side, cards are thinly collected. If 30 people could be rounded up to aggressively build SGC sets across the board, it would be a game changer.
