Yeah, if those guys want to guarantee a 9.8, that's a great deal, get in on it as I think the book will be hot, and a 9.8 will get $75+ out of the gate if you resell it. I just can't afford to eat grading fees trying to get everyone 9.8's. I typically grade older books for guys here who don't have a CGC account, and sometimes will send in new ones if people want, but it's not something I want to get into as a business.
