    Grading your ttm

    At what point do you guys get your ttm graded,

    a better question is which players?

    I would think you would want the auto fro ttm authenticated first

    Yes, but which ones, if you get an ave of 10-20 a month, particularly players that won't be remembered for all time, how do you decide whose auto to invest the grading in?

    Correct me if I'm wrong. The cheapest authentication is $20 and the cheapest grading is $20. So that's $40 plus the cost to ship it there and then to ship it back. If you have no plans on selling a particular graph I don't understand why you would get it authenticated and graded. Plus any graph that is worth selling would probably have a higher price for authentication and grading.

    I will answer this really quick! I have a nice size collection that even has many HOF players who have passed. My colletion is for me and not for sell. Why spend cash that I could spend making my collection better to have someone else who may have less time in autographs than I do tell me if my item is good or bad?

    both great points. I have never even considered authenticating any of my TTM's for the simple fact of the $$$ involved. Plus the point that was made of such mediocre stars returning there mail, just isnt worth it. I great bench mark to go off of would be Ebay. If you get say a TTM from HOFer Dan Fouts, If his certified autos are selling for under $20 then to spend the money to get a TTM from him certified just isnt worth it in my eyes. The TTM aspect of the hobby is just that, a Hobby & really isnt any money to be made at it i feel.

    I haven't gotten an TTM certified but I know that I might get never will. I don't see the point in doing so even if you are going to sell it, it would cost more to get it certified than to make a profit. Although I have seen some collectors on Blowout get their TTM PSA/DNA they don't sell. I have seen Peyton Manning PSA/DNA because everyone was having the argument of fake or not. Getting it certified won't help you make a bigger profit unless it is Lebron James or Kobe's autograph but if you are wondering if your TTM is real, go for it but it can be expensive.
