It seems from @Mr. CC comment above that UR points from a sapphire preferred/reserve is more valuable then regular sapphire points. Why is that? I know points are worth 1.5 cents if redeemed through Chase but wouldn't that work with any UR points as long as you have the card?
regular Sapphire cannot be transferred to Airlines
But if you have the reserve open you could just transfer the points to the reserve (same is applicable with the 1.5)

So people first transfer their points to a specific airline and then sell it to a broker? Why can't someone just sell any UR points to a broker and then the broker can transfer it to whichever airline they want.
As you can tell I have no idea how selling points work :)

You are correct. Having another card that can transfer is good enough, as you can transfer there, then to the airline.
And NO, 1.5 o toward travel through reserve does no increase value.
I'll tell you later

I was just explaining @Definitions that in order to transfer to Airlines the points must be in a preferred/Reserve and the same is, that in order to receive the 1.5 cents towards travel the points must be on the reserve.

If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.
