Default is a graded card more valuable ?

Posted By: Peter_Spaeth

If the question is whether a slabbed card in fact is worth more in terms of what it can be puchased and sold for on the market, as opposed to whether it should be worth more, then the answer seems an obvious yes. People have debated to death whether this is right or wrong, the competence of the grading services, etc., but despite the anti-grading views of people like Frank (who doubtless have valid points), the reality of the marketplace speaks for itself. Even anti-grading guys who post regularly here have acknowledged they will submit cards for grading before selling. Just the way it is at this point in time anyhow -- notwithstanding all the reservations about the grading companies.
