IMO, the only reason to authenticate with or without slab is resale value. I will submit for authentication if, and only if, the amount I will get for the item is higher than without. Simple in my mind.

To slab or not, I think is more of a personal preference rather than value decision UNLESS you are going for grading, as some might think the slab will be better to preserve the grade. I am sure there are plenty of examples out there of cards ruined by the slab, but the marketing behind slabs and TPAs in general is so successful that many of their faults, including this, gets overlooked by the masses.

Your Cobb check has a very strong autograph. If you think, you could get a really high grade on the auto itself then you would open up the market to a whole group of collectors who only want "the Best" and might be able to charge a significant premium.


You might be able to find the selling price of this one and see if it worth it to pay for the cert

Here is a PSA 10. It has a lot of watchers, but not sold

So, that would be a NO then. Wow. That can't be right.

Thanks Mark - I don't understand how a non-damaged, non-faded, non-smudged autograph can be anything less than 'mint'. I guess we will find out - I'll post the slabbed results when I get it back.

It was listed as buy it now with the price crossed out, which typically means it was a best offer accepted.

Midway down the page, you see it.

Hmmm. Link doesn't work. Search for Cobb Check PSA and then completed auctions and you'll see it

Sure. Scott.
GLWS slabbing. I will be interested to hear the entire costs and then see the sale price

Just don't forget to add in the grading service. It's the grade that gets you the no.

i would like to slab my cobb and walter johnson checks, but i think all the tpas want at least $150...which i'm not willing to do. slabbed is easier to handle than stacks and stacks of raw stuff in big toploaders, having same problems with 8x10s since i'm getting into signed photos a bit. next check/postcard/picture i buy of a big hof'er will preferably be slabbed, and not raw or with an additional LOA that i need to store.

I have a guy on ebay proclaiming himself a 20-year vet of autograph dealing who has been buying Cobb checks all day long for 450-600. That bit of info, of course, is the precursor to asking me what I will take for it.

I hate ebay. In fact, I hate selling stuff in general. Perhaps I will just declare everything I currently own to be my personal collection
