    What to do with this Yu Darvish

    Hey guys...

    Pulled this card a couple weeks ago. Centering is great, corners sharp, no refractor lines. Numbered out of 100. I'm tempted to grade and sell it but also wondering if I shouldn't just sell it as is with the idea that it would be great for someone else to grade. Any ideas?

    So what did you end up doing with it and how much did you get if you don't mind me asking?

    It really depends, if you are looking for top dollar, you should send it in to be graded. The problem is that you are never guaranteed a grade you think you are going to get. If you want to take that risk, then I would definitely get it graded.

    You should also be aware that getting one card graded is expensive, so if you are looking to make money, grading could eat into the profits.

    Yeah that's what I've been told. I've never graded a card before but I understand that some people do group grading.

    As a suggestion, ISA offers $5 card grading as a flat price. They will not charge you more for 'perceived value.'
