The world's most trusted source in collecting

Get into a mid-grade/collector grade vintage card especially, and the demand for a graded version is likely going to drop even more significantly.
Additionally, I wouldn't be surprised if people purchase raw thinking that it will grade higher so the pay a little more for the gamble. I doubt that applies to many people at all but I'm sure they are out there.
A lot of it all depends on the card issue as well.
