I would encourage you to get to know sellers/dealers that you can trust so you can avoid alterations and/or fakes, especially on the higher value cards. A nice alternative to the grading slab is to keep the cards in penny sleeves and top loaders. Ultra Pro makes these for the larger 52-56 Topps and they provide excellent protection at a low cost.

Thanks so much Vintage. It just makes more sense for a number of reasons...and thanks for the heads up for getting to know the vendos. It's a shame that that's the case, but such is life.

Question, so with 52 Topps raw, will they fit in the Ultra Pro Platinum 9-slot pages?
One families journey in card collecting, including the attempt to build a set of the most iconic baseball card set ever...1952 Topps!
2 down...405 to go!
