I'd second njdolphins comments........never, ever cared for PSA, their grading or the way they do business. I thought BGS and/or BVG was ok until I got stuck with a slabbed trim job that they missed. Don't know enough about GAI to say that I like them so...........SGC, SGC and SGC for me.

My favorites are as follows:

1. SGC
2. SCD/PSA
3. GAI (in my opinion GAI 8s often have to much corner wear)
4. Beckett (grade to many cards that other companies will not grade due to evidence of trimming).

I follow the strategy often mentioned on this board of buying the card and not the holder and I crossover cards into SGC holders. I will buy SGC as well as SCD, PSA and GAI cards if their condition is what I am looking for (i.e., has good chance of crossing over to SGC 88 or better). I am very hesitant about buying Beckett cards (see comment above).
