Never too soon for intelligent humor. I spewed my slurpee on that one...

Well done.

Prime example: I purchased THE Allegeheny Mathewson after it had been regraded from a '6' to a '5' and paid about half what the previous buyer had paid...what a moron!

...and that's the reason there are two listings for that card in the pop report.

IMO - If nothing else, cracking slabs to be regraded skews what would otherwise be a dependable information source (SMR) .

I crack slabs for cards I store in binders. I generally prefer to put a few hundred low-mid grade raw cards into a binder than to stack larger graded holders in boxes. I'll buy a card raw or graded, but many (maybe even the majority of) sellers sell graded cards. Its only the card I'm after, regardless of what it is stored in.

It screws up the pop reports which are probably nowhere near correct anyway.
I would guess that the pop reports are skewed more up by the crack-and-resubmit game players than by the raw card collectors.

You're taking greater risk at the card getting harmed.
Probably. However, we've seen examples of cards getting damaged in holders (I believe most were SGC with the black insert). And the holder won't stop UV damage to those who enjoy displaying cards in sunlit rooms.


Quote:
And whomever submitted it spent quite a decent chunk of change getting it slabbed.
Agreed. They could've spent that slab money on more cards!

Default cracking

I have purchased cards, from all 3 grading companies, that were incorrectly slabbed. Why keep a Holsum Bread card in a Beckett slab when it is really a Weil Baking card? Also, I am converting all of my personal collection of early 1900's cards to SGC because I like the way they look and I want my display to look uniform. So, I have cracked my Beckett and PSA cards to submit them to SGC.

Now, if I had a Jordan rookie or a nice Mantle, I would keep them in their PSA slabs.

Default Unslabbing

Maybe it is because I also collect old books (or just because I'm strange), but I hate that you can't touch or smell a slabbed card.
