Prospectors is grading a must for you?
I have been prospecting for the past couple of years, and have definitely made some easy money.
my question though, Is grading a must for turning the best profit?
to me it seems as though it is an extra step and is a risk that is not worth the time or moneyEvery time you buy from me, ebay doesn't take 10% of the sale price

The stuff I'm holding, it wouldn't be cost-effective for me to get graded (I generally go for low-priced, high-risk prospects).
I send 5-6 cards at a time when I do send cards to be graded (vintage), so it averages out to about $16/card (20-day t/o). Add the cost of the prospect card ($10-15), and you're really looking at the card selling for $50 or so to make it worth it. I'm not willing to take that risk, but that's just me.
Now if you rip a nice card, maybe it makes more sense. I just don't seem to have that kind of luck, though, haha.

I buy a lot of prospects, but they're all for my PC. However, I've been considering buying some extra to sell a little later to offset some of the cost of my hobby. If I do, those will be graded.Collecting pre-war, vintage and modern baseball cards.
