Default Opinions wanted -to grade or not to grade- Hank Aaron Rookie!

I have this OBVIOUSLY trimmed Hank Aaron rookie card. I'm definitely selling it on Ebay....I just wanted opinions on if ya'll think I should just sell it as is, or would I realize more getting it in an SGC "A" slab?

It would cost around $50 or so to get it graded.

People love holders, you would probably recoup it IMO.

I just had a Roberto Clemente rookie graded and it came back Authentic. My set is 95% raw, so I mainly just wanted to make sure my Clemente was real. For what I paid, I think I could turn it even with the price of grading and with the Authentic label and still make a profit. For someone with a low level 55 set, or someone just needing the card, a decent looking "A" will do just fine in many cases.

Your Aaron rookie is probably in the same boat. If it grades, take the "A" and move it along when the time is right. I'd grade it.

I agree. My gut tells me confirming it is authentic combined with the value many put on holders (regardless of grade) will make grading worthwhile.
