Default Rookies: Carlton, Bench?

Went to a card show today...I saw very good conditioned Carlton & Bench rookies. They aren't graded but the corners are good, centered, and just looked great.

The guy would let me have them for $175 for the pair. Being so new to this now I think that would be a good deal. Any thoughts?

Thanks, Jamie

Like most vintage key rookie, the cards are condition sensitive. If new to collecting, I'd only buy if graded, at the price. Here are past sales for grade price comparisons:

They also may be trimmed. I nearly pulled the trigger on a Carlton RC on COMC. Based on the scans, the card looked pretty nice. However, I asked them for a better in-person analysis of the card, and they responded back and told me it was trimmed. They also removed it from the site. Those guys continue to impress me.
