General grading question
I am just asking as I am not into the whole grading thing.

In browsing for pickups for my 1958 Topps set, I have come across many cards that have been graded. The grades I have seen range from Mint 9s all the way down to 1s, 2s, and even an "A" which I am guessing means authentic.

Here's my question:
Why would you (the general public) send off cards to be graded if they're going to come back as anything less than 7? It just seems like it would be a waste of money to send a card to get graded and it come back anything less than NM.

Example: I would consider it a waste of money to send off any of my 1958s to get graded if they're coming back less than a 6-7. It seems like the profit potential would just not be there if you were trying to resale the cards graded vs. selling them ungraded.

Just wanted to get an opinion on this.
