The way NGC is the clear preferable option for pandas is the way PCGS is the clear preferable option for American coins.  These choices were made by the collectors. I'd even say the gap between PCGS and NGC on American coins is greater than the gap between NGC and PCGS on pandas.  American coins graded PCGS are way more desirable to the general public and are also much more expensive to grade.  When you factor in first strike and show labels they are even more expensive.

The Pogue ($200,0000,000) Collection was slabbed by PCGS: https://youtu.be/Q0pu9nCNCQQ

Perhaps it may turn out eventually that the predominance of a TPG in any area of coin collection is determined more by historical and/or business strategies that attract the most collectors.
