Default Vintage Questions

I have been into modern cards for the past few years. Well over the past few weeks I have been slowing getting back into getting my show cases full again. While I was out shopping I came across a few pile of vintage cards from 1909 to mid 60's. Looking at them I found 2 that I like so I grab them. There is a bunch more there and I am wondering if they are worth getting, the price are from $2.00 to 1955 Yogi Berra for $125, there is also a 61 Clemente for $25 too.

So after looking into those cards, I was wondering if there is any site I can look at to help understand what to look for when shopping for vintage.

Also I decided to put together 1958 and 1959 Topps.

If any one wants to help me please do, I am a very new to this and really looking for some wisdom.

I think the most important decision for you will be what "level" of condition satisfies you.

Do you care more about centering or corners, for example?

There's a big jump in price once you start getting above PSA 7 (i.e. NM), for example....

That is a good question. I think I am more interested in the cleanest of the surface but just getting started in vintage, I am interested in anything. I am not worried about how it would grade. I would like to know enough so I can understand what I am looking and to make sure it is real.

I am actually putting together the 1958 set myself and do not worry too much on condition since I do not sell anything. The only graded cards I buy are PSA 5 with good centering.

I also have some duplicates of 1958 too, so I can help out at the next show.
