It's a $225 card. It it's graded it could fetch $100 more.

I say grade it with a quick turnaround and flip when he gets ROY.

The real question is: for a 50ish% price boost, why wouldn't you?

Um...kinda hard to tell from your scan. If you REALLY want our opinion. I would scan BIG:

1. Front
2. Front top left corner
3. Front top right corner
4. Front lower left corner
5. Front lower right corner
6. Back top left corner
7. Back top right corner
8. Back lower left corner
9. Back lower right corner

We still can't see the surface so our opinions are pretty much useless.

Good luck!
