Default Encapsulating autographs

Is this now a requirement among collectors? I would have thought that loose checks with LOA's would be preferable, as they can be matted and framed, but the evidence on a check I'm trying to sell says otherwise.

For me personally, I prefer to have them encapsulated. But by no means do they have to be in order for me to buy one.

I prefer slabbed too. If you frame the check that's more or less serving the same purpose of the slab. But not everyone likes to display their items.

I don't like items slabbed, really do not like the way they display. Checks and cuts I preferred framed. I have bout a few slabbed autographed cards over the years that I have broken out of the slab.

Rich always loves showing that off whenever he gets the chance.

I find that the uneducated collector (IE-Never on these boards) gets a piece of mind that comes with having a slabbed check. Plus, there is a value of not having to pay for the slabbing if they ever want to flip in the future.

Thanks for the responses. I definitely prefer 'no slab' for any item other than some cards; however, I realize that collecting preferences have passed me by, just like technology.

I've never sent anything in to be authenticated but with a nice item like your Cobb check it may be beneficial; especially if it gets a high grade. It's got a lot going for it. The sig looks great with no bank stampings across it and its done in Cobb's Green ink. A guy had a "9" on ebay for 2995.00 and accepted an offer and it sold. It's a beauty but yours doesn't seem far off...unfortunately the slab means everything these days and with a high numerical grade the sky's the limit.

Slabbing would make it easier to handle too. Like I said, not everyone is interested in displaying something. If you're going to put a check into some kind of other protective case, why not slab it? Especially if you're going to have it authenticated anyway.
