Default Questions on grading my Dustin Ackley PC

Hey guys,
Been collecting cards again for about a year and have a pretty nice Mariners PC going. The main guy I am concentrating on is Dustin Ackley. So he didn't have a great year this year, but I'm remaining hopeful. Listed below are the cards I am proudest of. Do you think they would be worth it to get graded? I'm not looking to flip them once they are graded but I just like the idea of having some rare rookie cards of his graded. Take a look and let me know what you think. Also, the spots on the scans are from my scanner, not the cards.

17/25


19/25


3/5


30/99


6/75


15/25

I'd send them in with a requirement of 9 or better. Nice collection you got going on.

Nice collection! The cards are gorgeous, but each have some centering issues. If these are PC items, there's no real reason to grade them, outside of the protection, but that can be solved with a toploader/magnetic and a team bag.

1) Nice cards
2) I have graded a bunch of PC cards with zero intention of flipping them. It comes down to this for me: I like the protection the cases give. You might like having high-grade PC rookies because they are more sought-after, and then in a way they are better additions to your PC, but its all up to you.

Good luck!

Thanks for the input guys. I have been thinking about sending them in for a few months but I think I will do it around Christmas so that way I can open them Christmas morning as an extra present to me. Do they email the results or is there a way to indicate you dont want the email?

You want the email to confirm everything is good to go. You can have someone else read it if you want to be surprised lol.

Default Mr. Ackley

For some reason I like this guy, I have no idea why (which might be bad for him), I am not a Mariners fan at all. I do have a few Ackleys, The Sterlings at this time are not available, however the Finest could be had...

2011 Bowman Sterling 35/50
2011 Bowman Sterling 45/50
2011 Bowman Sterling 17/25
2011 Bowman Sterling 23/25
2011 Finest 129/299
