It Cannot Be Understated How Difficult It Is For Any Card, Especially a Magic Card To Achieve The Coveted Grade of BGS 10 .
Why is a BGS 10 much more valuable than a PSA 10 ?
Simply put, BGS has a much stricter grading scale. It's actually a FOUR POINT GRADING SCALE. CLose but no cigar might yield you a PSA 10, but certainly not the coveted BGS 10. Serious collectors know this, and serious Investors know this.
Just take a look at the Joe Montana Rookie card below sale that took place below.

An Ungraded NM/Mint Beta Black Lotus sells For roughly $7500.00. PSA-10 Sells For roughly $25000. + By Comparison The BGS-10 Beta Black Lotus Should Command An Asking Price Of $575,000 (When Compared To The PSA-10), and well over A Million Dollars When Compared To Its Ungraded Counterpart.
Seem Extravagant? Perhaps, But Perhaps Not. Lets Look At Some Of The Top Items For Other Key Collectibles:
Comics: Action Comics #1
In August of 2014 We auctioned off a copy of Action Comics #1 9.0 (1 of only two in existance) on eBay for a Guiness World Record Price of $3,207,000 !!!
Amazing Fantasy #15 ( 1st App of Spider-man ) a 9.4 sold for $240,000-- But the HIGHEST graded 9.6 ( 1 of 3 copies ) sold for a whopping $1,100,000 !!
Incredible Hulk #181( 1st Wolverine ) A 9.8 goes for around $15,000 .............BUT The only 9.9, the copy we held in our hands sold for $150,000 !!!
Baseball Cards: Honus Wagner Rookie (The Highest Existing Copy Sold For Well Over $2 Million Dollars It Is ..................... (No Longer For Sale)
To Further Compare, A CGC 10.0 Graded Copy Of Wolverine #1 (Not A Highly Sought After Comic) Sold For $17,400.00. The Comic Lists At $18 Ungraded, And a 9.6 Copy Sold For Only $120.00. The 10.0 Sold For Nearly Sixty-Seven Times The Amount Of the 9.6 And Nine Hundred & Sixty-Six Times The Value Of The Ungraded Version Of The Same Comic!!
By comparison $100,000 is not only reasonable ....for those who can afford it ... It's a Bargain !! It may also be the only time you'll ever get the chance to own it. We once owned the original Black lotus art- We sold it over a decade ago and to our knowledge, has never surfaces for sale again.
