Buy graded or buy raw and send to grade
I am working to complete a set which requires some topps base Ken Griffey Jr cards. I am looking for PSA 10.
Most of these cards range from $50 to $125 from online dealers. They are in the range of 2001 to 2008. Would it be worth it to buy raw and submit or will that more than likely cost me more in the end? I know there are a lot of factors at play here. But I would guess that a few of you have made that decision before.
Pops are currently around 15 to 45 for each of these cards in PSA 10. A high percentage of the cards are grading a 10, so it seems like the dealers are just trying to score high by the prices I see.
