I know the only reason I crack one out is if I'm planning on getting it signed. Of course I buy raw if I can, but sometimes I find the best ones for the money in slabs, so that's what I gotta do!

I like to crack them out so that when I send them through the mail, the person opening the package will cut through the card.


Too soon?

I am a set collector who likes my sets in easy to access binders.

But now I feel so guilty for messing up pop reports

All of these, plus:

5) I find the flips visually distracting
6) I'm not scared

....and I could give a rats ass about pop reports. Those are for you slabbies to worry about.

LOL, Al. Hope that guilt don't keep you awake all night.

I, too, crack out many cards for sets. That, and I just don't really care for slabbed cards.

700 koufax 7s?

don't ever rely heavily on what a pop reports states.

that picture is hilarious but just a tiny glimpse of reality.


i only crack when the raw card submittal fee coincides w/ the value of not getting the 10.

example: 1994 topps ryan card in a 9 is a $6 card.

10's sell for some reason for $120 - $150.

it doesn't make sense to review that card at $17, so crack out a 9 and go for the 10 on a raw sub of only a $6-$7 fee.

of course, i doubt seriously anyone is too concerned about the pop report on that card either.

although, after all it is only an tpg opinion. and some simply don't agree w/ the tpgs opinion and don't want to send it back in under review w/ the notion the card is "only a 5". they want a fresh set of eyes and an unbiased opinion on it. this also get its in a new holder, hopefully. could come back minsiz, altered or etc. there is definitely an inherent risk in doing so. plus some just like the accomplishment factor, the cheaper alternative for moving up the registry or even the possible profit that coincides.

whatever the reason, it's their card and i try not to knock what another collector does. to each their own, i guess.

Well, it wouldn't make much sense for me to collect an entire run and have some of the cards be in slabs and others not. It's considerably cheaper for me to crack the cards out than submit the hundreds of other cards I have for grading.

Plus, as others have said, baseball cards look so dang good in binders.
