Default Should I get these Cassius Clay/Ali cards graded?

I have a couple of Cassius Clay cards,
one Hemmets Journal, and one Rekordmagasinet...

The Hemmets Journal issue has a small damage of some sort on the left side eye, and some slight scraching can be seen if i tilt it and shine a light on it.

The Rekordmagasinet card is a bit dirty all over

Both cards look like they have been cut out a bit ascew (dont know the right word)

Any point getting these graded? I suppose it would help having them protected by being encased anyway.

Tried adding pictures below.
Thank you for any opinion on the matter

My guess is PSA would grade them poorly, because of the crease / issues around the left eye area as you noted on the Hemmets, and the staining on the Rekord.

Being in Sweden, I'm thinking the cost of shipping them to / from PSA would be quite costly (it's expensive enough for their return shipping when you live in the USA!), so the value added by having them graded - when you may get low grades - might not be worth the added cost of the grading fees and shipping.

I may be interested in them ungraded - will send you a PM.

Get them graded. They are nice cards, and it would be good to grade to prove authenticity.
