Grading advice: 71-72 Topps Bobby Orr
 
Does anyone around here with grading experience feel like offering some advice?

I have this card in my comc account:
[url=http://www.comc.com/Users/gethighonhockey/Cards/Hockey/1971-72/Topps/100/Bobby_Orr/104549]gethighonhockey's 1971-72 Topps #100 - Bobby Orr - COMC[/url]

I was thinking about trying out their new grading service. I've never had any of my cards graded... is it worth it? The card looks pretty good to me, but I have pretty low standards. What do you think it would get?

(and I realize you can't see everything in the scan, but whatever)

It looks to be at least a 6.5 with a good chance at a 7. Maybe a miracle 8.

That is my guess for PSA grades. I have no idea about Beckett.

I have one in just about the same condition. I was going to send it to PSA eventually. I want to try grading through COMC as well. I don't really have anything in my account(s) that I want graded though. I will probably do the separate grading. I live close enough to just take them over there.

What's it worth raw? I think a 7 is a pretty solid guess, maybe 7.5 (assuming no wrinkles, etc).

6 or 7 due to the centering. No way it gets a 6.5 or 7.5. You typically have to have really solid centering to get the 1/2 grade bumps for PSA. Still a nice card.

centering is bad if they give it an oc qualifier it will grade a bit higher however if they dont give it a qualifier id say 5-6 at best and this is psa not beckett. BGS/BVG will HAMMER that card
pm me if your looking to submit it

thanks for the advice everyone. i'll post it up if i do go through with grading, but right now i'm leaning towards not.

well, someone sent a fair offer so I let it go as is. it won't be graded by me at least.
