The PSA set registery nuts will pay out the nose for high grade vintage to say they have the best set. Ive seen $20 commons go $500+ because of low pop numbers in high grade. If less than 8 go with what ever companys slabs you like best. I disagree with grading all vintage. Even more so with the star cards. Seems a raw Mantle that will grade a 4 will sell better than a already graded 4 Mantle. People buying the raw cards will hope they would grade better than they are. Kinda dumb but its the gamble they take. Once graded you pretty much know what your going to get for it.

A "5 " Willie Mays will sell well because the collector that wants to be sure they're not getting screwed will pay for the graded cards. Cards I think will grade less than 5 don't get sent in. Do your homework, some companies graded cards sell better and never go to these smaller upstart grading services that you never have seen before.
