I've always subscribed to the "buy the card, not the grade" mantra. With CSG, I would say more of my cards are slightly over-graded than under-graded. But I'm buying the card, and CSG graded is still severely undervalued, so that's what most of my vintage collection is currently. 

My 1953 Topps Jackie Robinson (below) may grade a PSA 2 instead of CSG 2.5. But I got it for significantly less than what a PSA 2 would go for – and it presents incredibly well in a CSG slab. CSG has the best slabs in the business, IMO.




This card looks awesome with the new black label. The care and slab blend very well.

I've only sent in one vintage card to be graded. It was a 1956 Hank Aaron white back. I had it pegged as a 7 before I sent it in, and that's exactly what it came back with:


Nice looking card.
