How should I determine which ones would be the best to send away?
Should I grade them no matter the condition?
Is a "raw" card better sometimes than a "graded" one?
I have all the greats...some in decent shape, some beat up, some look really good....can anybody help me?
I would really appreciate any info. Thanks

If you are no planning on selling them, and just want the protection a slab offers then you may want to send them all in regardless of condition. If you have some of the greats and the card is in really nice condition and grades high it will no doubt have a much higher bv graded than raw.
There are some instances where a raw card has a higher bv than a graded one but not usually if the grade is high.
