3-A BC product with the RC logo on it.

You're in the driver's seat on this one.

If you are asking what to do that usually means you need your arm twisted, so don't do it.

I wouldn't get it graded either unless you were keeping it and wanted a nice display/ extra protection. It's a 1/1 and from what a potential buyer can see is in legit condition adding attractiveness of a possible pristine. Let the buyer get it graded.

Worse case scenario, take the 2K in 3 months.
I'm asking because I want to max sv, not because I'm being cornered into a sale. I didn't spend anything for is card do, nothing to recoup. I understand your point on grading. However, do you think a potential buyer wold feel more comfortable spending a premium knowing the card is not flawed? Just wondering.

Best offer now is$2500.00 PayPal so that's like selling it on eBay bin $2600.

I would say take the $2500, no risk. This is about his tenthi Bowman Chrome card, not anywhere near his key Bowman Chrome card. I think the offer is more than fair, this card will never be in the $4000-$5000 range, so take the money and buy a ton of stuff you would be more happy with. Great pull, Congrats!

As a buyer I would love for you to grade it cause if I were to offer you $2500it'll be for that card either raw or at a 10. So save yourself the time and $ and let the buyer pay for BGS. It looks in decent enough condition.

Don't risk it coming back a 9 and the buyer backing out.

If someone is willing to go $2500 raw, they'd go 3K. Also, I personally like the RC logos on the cards. Sure there not the BC 1st's but IMO still very collectible.

I'd personally get it graded and let it sit until spring training, but definitely unload it then. As said many times before, it's not his first non-auto super floating around, but it is still a gem of a card!

Definitely try and get in the pull of the month! I remember submitting an entry when I was 16 and I got in the next month, so there is definitely a quick turnaround and its the right thing to do for your LCS owner.

just for arguements sake. what happens if he blows a knee the first week of spring training and can't play anymore? the way I would look at it is risk versus reward. right now you have $2500 offer. If he gets hurt or his career goes down hill from here how far will this price drop. lets say it drops as low as $100. You are our $2400. If he has a good spring and a great season and price goes up to say $4000. at $4000 when you sold it at $2500 you are out $1500. You would be out far less if you take the $2500. in my opinion the amount you have to lose is more than the amount you have to gain. Id sell it.

LCS owner who is a certified PSA grader looked at it today and basically said its a for sure PSA 10. Still worth $2500?

This ^ The value will always be there at 2000 in 3-6 months. I would hold and maybe grade and take the chance of getting more out of it then 2K

Edit-read offer of 2500 tough call but, I would send for grading have them only slab it if it is 9.5 or better then sell for 3K

That is not true haha. The value won't increase as much as say a regular auto would of Harper. In terms of percentage increase. But the 1/1 slabbed keeps it safe. I would grade it just for the security of it.

I saw the scan OP, looks a little off centered from L to R. It may get a 9.5, but don't guarantee it without doing it. Don't need another RedSox on our hands haha.

I'm not guaranteeing it, just what the grader told me, in case I wanted to send it in.
