Should I Get My Baseball Cards Graded?
This is a conversation I have everyday with clients, Should I get my Baseball Cards Graded? Grading of sports cards is very common in today’s marketplace, however, can be very expensive. The answer is…..yes and no. Look at it this way; if you have a card that is worth $20, does it make sense to spend $8-$18 to put it in a holder? Unless you are building a SGC/PSA Registry Set, I would say no. There are 2 main advantages to getting your Baseball Cards Graded: 1) A third party, unbiased professional will certify the condition of the card; thus creating a “market value” for the card. 2) It is very, very easy to sell a card that has been graded. In fact; you can buy or sell a card world-wide with virtually no doubt in what you are purchasing. Many collectors like cards in their original form as they came out of the pack and elect to store their cards just that way. There is nothing wrong with that. In fact, many cards in my personal collection are ungraded. It is fun to pull them out and flip through them just like I did as a kid.
