I heard PSA has a months long backlog. So, if you think the bubble is short lived, sell ungraded. I have a friend who sold an extensive basketball collection on ebay and didn't wait to grade what wasn't already graded.I held onto some select cards from my youth so that it wouldn't bite me in the ass like it did my Dad. I didn't even look at them for years, but with sports card becoming en vogue again, I decided to see if I owned anything valuable.
I have a few cards that seem like they could be valuable, but much of their value is tied to a PSA rating (?). For example, this Michael Jordan Hologram I own could be $1250 or $95. This Shaq rookie card could be $500 or $45. I don't know enough about collectibles to understand why there is such a drastic difference between the two prices
I kind of want to sell while the bubble's hot as I don't have a lot of sentimental attachment to these things. Is it worth getting them appraised? If it's impossible to get that high PSA rating, should I save the money and try to sell for the lower value?
If you think the Jordan will grade high - 9 or 10, I'd get it graded. I think they'll always be a strong Jordan market.
