Exclamation is it worth it to get these cards graded?

My dad and me dug through his old hockey card collection, and found a couple cards that are of good players and are in excellent condition. We found:
1966 Topps Bobby Orr RC
1979 Topps Wayne Gretzky RC
1985 Topps Mario Lemieux RC
1971 Topps Guy Lafleur RC
1970 Topps Jean Beliveau
1970 Topps Bobby Orr

Is it worth grading them if they seem to be in excellent condition, I can take pictures later tonight if that would help.

Get them graded. Just look on eBay at the difference in price between a raw cardin great shape or a PSA6. The PSA goes for a lot more. Also don't use bgs for these. Pre 1989 generally use PSA.

The great on and the pepe lepew look pretty good! That gretzky is probably a decent grade as those are tough cards.

What do you think of the Mario Lemieux? It says Here that it's worth $14,000 at a high grade?
EDIT: Dad told me Pepe Le Pew is Mario Lemieux -_-, What do you think of the Wayne Gretzky rookie? What would the difference between the O-Pee-Chee and the Topps one be?

The gretzky looks good. Off center but I'd get it graded

How many PSA points would off-center printing take away?

Lemeuix sells regularly for $1,000 graded 10 so don't get your hopes too high. Stil a several hundred dollar card. The opc gretzky says opc on it instead of topps.

That's awesome! Me and my dad were looking to sell some of those cards to get an Xbox and a new TV! Do you think that's possible?
