Grading Opinions? - nickpga2be - 10-02-2012 11:48 PM
So, I recently came into quite a few 2012 triple threads cards. My question is are they worth sending in to be slabbed? Obviously the 1/1's wouldn't be but what about everything else. Triple autos?
Just curious what you all think. Any and all opinions welcome. Thanks

I think that depends on a few factors and what your goal is.
a) Trying to increase their value? I'd take a close look at the cards, as a lot of Triple Threads that I've seen opened are a little rough on the edges. The grading cost quickly adds up and won't be worth it for a lot of them if they aren't in great condition.
b) Trying to protect them long term? I think cards look great slabbed, as long as you're ok with not getting all 9/9.5s, etc.

If you're goal is long term preservation, I wouldn't necessarily count out 1/1's.

If you want 9-10, take a good look first, for protection go with them all. Just get insurance if sending 1/1s.
