Default My first 1970's Pack Purchase

My first ever packs I have gotten from the 70's arrived today. I was thinking about having them graded by PSA at an upcoming show primarily for protection but if the grades came back say 8 or better then I may contemplate selling them. Just wondering if anyone has had experience with grading packs and looking at the scans do you see anything "wrong" with the packs that may keep them from getting a decent grade? Also, does the gum being a solid stick or broken have any bearing on grades?

Not sure how graders rate the packs, but the corners seem a little rough and the wrappers looks a little wrinkled. I have never personally bought any older packs, especially since older wax packs were being resealed with an iron. It may be worth a try to send them off for grading and maybe they can tell you if they have been resealed.

I know GAI downgraded the condition if the gum was broken into pieces, not sure if PSA does the same.
