From what I've seen, been told. Summer Underground, Serendib and possibly BoPs tend to sell for more then the Hurricanes these days. and they have been selling for 2-2.5k, so likely under 2k if one came up on ebay with a decent starting price.

Well Braps had a huge mint summer magic sale a few months back on ebay. He sadly put a lot of huge summer cards up at the same time so i think he lost out on a lot of money since the big collectors were picking and choseing But if i recall the Sol Ring and Tutor did go for well over $1000 each. The ...

Obviously this might not be true if you can pull non-BGS 9.5 or 10 cards from a pack coming out of a sealed box, as somebody mentioned. However in my very limited experience (8-10 Beta packs opened in my life) all contents were totally Gem Mint as I pulled them out. well don't forget centering effe...

PSA is older and has a much larger population of graded cards than BGS. This explains why there will be fewer higher and lower graded cards from BGS. Beckett has an MTG publication which "shills" it's own graded cards.
Beckett used to claim (before Dr Beckett sold), it would "never" get into the grading business as it would conflict with pricing cards. The Beckett mags have sold a lot less since the internet came around and BGS was born to increase revenues. BGS HAS THE "10" CARD. It's just a gimmick. It means that there will be fewer of those "10" cards but how many cards will they grade lower because they can only label very few (1-2) of them?
Then who will get the "10" rating? People who send them 1000's of cards or someone who sends in a few? That's why PSA doesn't have the 9.5 split. The same applies to quantity though. Also a lot of people will re submit a card over and over again to both companies for a btter grade than before. Anybody who claims one is worse than the other (or has their cards graded) should research both companies. I think it's a big scam either way but Beckett saw how much money PSA was making off the concept ...
I personally think it's foolish to pay so much to slab cards in general by either company. It's kind of like the Hitler and Stalin thing. They both suck!
True True, but most people seem to feel that BGS is more honest and fair. Not sure why but that is the perception in mass. Now yes BGS has not been grading as long as PSA, and been grading Magic even shorter, but in sports cards they are seen as a batter grader. People send to PSA knowing that they are more likely to get a better grade, thus making people discredit PSA grades. Same with all the other graders out there, they are preceved as less honest, thus their high graded cards are valued lower. For some reason grading adds value to cards, and people pay that value. BGS tends to add more value to a card then PSA. There 10s are rarer. I don’t think many price guides are very accurate, other then maybe MTOL since its just scans and averages. Hell an old store owner I knew use to report to Scrye. He turned to me and asked me once “what you think Exalted angel is worthâ€￾ he continued to report to them even after he sold his store.

BGS is a much harder grader. and a 10 tends to be unheard of in most cases for BGS. 9.5 being hard enough to get. and even 9s not that easy. A lot of people would say that its harder to get a BGS9.5 then a PSA10. And for a lot of cards a BGS 9.5 tend to price higher then PSA10s. Gives you an idea wh...

Not a single one of those rares sold for over $10 (excluding shipping). 1/3 of them didn't sell at all. And of the ones that DID sell, the same guy bought all but 2 of them. I would assume he was working on a set (really risky assumption, I know). So it's a matter of hitting a buyer who really want...

I think demand for Unhinged is low, but it does look like the print run and the amount of product opened was very low. but if people are picking up Foil Crap Rare of unplayabel cards for 5-10$ something is up. Since even in small sets foil crap rares are only 1-2. not 5 Playset sets are for playing ...

Online stores are a horrible..HORRIBLE..way to decide on prices. At least their sell prices are. Their buy prices are much more useful..;-) But I would suggest that people are trying to make sets, so 3-4 bucks a rare (depending) could be more reasonable..
