Default Should I grade these or sell raw

After looking around the net for a bit I see these can get pretty pricey if graded well. I have never graded anything and really am scared to tell the truth. I dont want any to come back a 7 or 8. I have Jeter SP rc's I know would sell high if graded right but like I said Im scared.

These are the ony vintage I have lmk what you think, do I grade or not worth it.

Thanks in advance.

Sell raw. They probably won't have the grade you are looking for to recoup the price difference. That yount has some nice eye appeal. This is just one guys opinion.

I would not grade any. None will be high grades.

You won't get much money unless you grade them, but unfortunately you won't get that much profit if you do given the likely grade from your scans (6 or 7's is my best guess) and the cost of grading. It's kind of a no win proposition. If you want to sell, best to list them for a price your comfortable with as a fixed item/buy it now item on Ebay.

Selling raw won't net much money unless you consign with a prominent (consistent condition provider) vintage seller.

Graded will reach a wider audience. I only buy non-graded vintage from a select group of sellers that I have grown to trust.

I dont think it matters much with these - not too many would go through the trouble to fake any of those cards.

I don't mean faking. I mean accurately and consistently describing conditions.

Too often the description is: see scan.

Unless something is blatant a scan doesn't provide the best critique of true condition.

Got ya, but I guess why I was saying dont bother grading is that raw, that Clemente sells from $5-$15. PSA 8's sell for $45-50, and this is not an 8. Probably a 6 IMO, which would be like $20-25. Not really worth the grading fees imo.
