I also would think a 1/1 graded high would bring some sort of premium. It wouldnt be about it just being a 1/1 anymore. It would be knowing that your 1/1 is in the best possible condition it could be in depending how it grades.

Because no matter what condition it grades out at it is still going to be the only 1 that exists. The only argument that I can agree with for grading a 1/1 is to keep it protected. Some people only deal with graded cards and that is their prospective or biased opinion, and what it comes down to is this; it is your money if you want to spend it then that is your right. But there is no way anybody can claim that grading a 1/1 is going to somehow give the card a premimum and there is no possible way to prove that it will.

Because your right, Im talking about out of all the grades a card can receive, knowing that your 1/1 graded a gem mint. If it happens to grade that way. Now not only is your card a 1/1, you know that it is in the best possible condition "a card" can be in. You cant tell me you would be just as happy to have your 1/1 in a graded 5 over a 9.5. Also I dont think a graded 5 1/1 would sell for anywhere near what a 9.5 would. Also yes there is a way to tell if a graded 1/1 could bring a premium. Its easy, first the card sells ungraded, then that person gets it graded and sells it again. Didnt that happen with the Stephen Strasburg Superfractor last year? I think it sold for 16 grand undgraded and then 23 grand graded.

Predicted a '91 Topps Desert Shield Larry Walker would get an 8.5... yet I somehow missed a whole lot of slight flaws on the 1/1. To be honest, I've never seen a card graded with straight 9's either. I've probably only had around 75 cards graded since 1999 and bought about 30. That's not a lot, I know, but I've never seen a card with straight 9 subs.
