What Would You Do With This "Tweener" Joe Montana Rookie BCCG 9
I have owned this for about 15 years and think I will let it go now. I bought for around $125 I believe. I think if you tried to come up with a dollar value for the card ungraded, it should be at least $500+. It's just a very strong BCCG 9 in my opinion, which means to me it's probably an 8.5 from Beckett with maybe a 10% chance of getting a 9 from Beckett or PSA.
Here is what they sell for:
BCCG 9s were going for around $350 at the peak after the pandemic, are trading between $200 and $300 now.
PSA 9 trades for around $1,800 to $2k.
Becket 8.5 goes for $350 to $550 and Beckett 9 goes for above $1k, usually around $1,200
I'd like to see the subgrades for corners and centering, surface broken out especially here so would be interested in Beckett or HGA for grading, and of course PSA too but I just dont think it is likely to get a 9. It can, but just would be a very sympathetic 9 and not the most likely grade. I'm considering SGC as well because it's only $15 now for short turnaround.
Regarding the surface which you can't see well, the front is great and I have no concerns there. The back does have some imperfection but I actually thought it might be part of the card at first because it blends in well and doesn't bother the aesthetic much at all.
What would you do? Where would you send it for grading? Thanks!
