Default Worth grading NASCAR cards?

I don't really collect sports cards, but every once in a while I pick up a box of NASCAR cards. I have a couple of cards that probably aren't particularly valuable now, but might be one day. I was wondering
(1) Is it worth it to get the cards graded?
(2) What is the best company to send the cards to for grading?

Some the of the cards I have in mind are:
2012 Press Pass Brad Keselowski autograph 14/175
2012 Press Pass Total Memorabilia Josh Wise Rookie holo parallel 14/99

1) Danica Patrick cards are worth grading, I think.

2) I like PSA, but others swear by Beckett for modern cards.

No. First off NASCAR cards aren't as valuable as they should be, the hobby market is so small. NASCAR is by far my favorite sport yet I can never get into collecting it. Collectors aren't gonna care if it is a BGS or not. NASCAR has some of the best supercollectors (meaning getting every card). None of them have graded cards. Plus there isn't prospecting in NASCAR. There is just no point in grading. Just a waste of money really.

As someone who is a big collector of Nascar I would say 99% no it's not worth it. There are a few cards that I would grade but that's about it.

1991 Traks Jeff Gordon RC
1988 Maxx Dale Earnhardt RC
a few of the others in the 1988 Maxx But they have to grade 9.5 to be worth it

Yea the older stuff like that is worth it to grade. I also saw some Stewart/Junior RC's do well when graded.

My two cents is, grade whatever you want if you're doing it for your personal collection of cards. I love graded cards for protection, so I try to grade all of my HOF baseball autographs and things like that in order to preserve them. I like BGS more than PSA, personally. The general consensus is BGS for modern, PSA for vintage. Hope that helps!

I also agree with Zoop. If its for a Personal Collection is well worth it. The cards just look better and they are well protected.

The Brad might be worth it if you think he's gonna win several more titles and go down in history as one of the greatest drivers ever...

Josh Wise..no, just no..don't bother

I pulled a Dale Earnhardt flagchaser black flag card several years ago which I got offers for up to $40-45, so I got it graded and it was a Mint 9 and I sold it for $80 so it does help a bit but for just plain mem or auto cards I dont see a point in nascar.
