Default Trimmed E cards - Do they need to be graded before selling?

I have a group of about 50 different E cards that are clearly trimmed. I am trying to decide if it would be worth having them graded Authentic before selling. I haven't seen any sales either way to tell me if they will sell for more (at least cover the grading cost) if slabbed authentic vs. a raw sale.

Interested in people's opinions on 1) do they need to be graded 2)which companies would graded them authentic/trimmed.
Here is a scan of one from each group of cards-

You wouldn't have much trouble selling them on bst here raw.

I see no point at all in slabbing those. I don't think their value goes up at all in an authentic holder.

I agree on not needing to slab. Anyone interested likely knows what they are looking at in this case. What they're looking at is some awesome cards btw.

Default In not slab camp

Being that are so enormously trimmed I don't think you would benefit from slabbing. I agree that the BST here would be a good choice...you have a lot of knowledgeable collectors here that don't need to be told that these are the real thing. Nice cards...I know I would be interested.

Disagree- I think you would get more for the HOFer's slabbed with an A. In some cases way more.

. I agree the Wagner, Chase and Mathewson graded authentic would bring a decent premium over raw as for the others not worth the cost.

Default My Experience

About six months ago I sold a raw (but not altered) beater E93 Wagner here on the BST. I accepted a price I was satisfied with and would have broken even had I paid for grading/shipping fees. That card was sold within a week, so I know it remained ungraded.

Later on, I sold a 40-count stack of ungraded E90-1 -- major HOFers and stars and commons -- here on the BST. Soon after, a few of them were put up for auction, raw, once again on the BST.

The remainder of that original sold stack are now appearing in the current Sterling auction (if you know my former cards, they are the ones with the holes in them). And still, they are ungraded.

Except for certain cards I am not for or against grading, and apparently neither are the buyers or the auction house. Hope this helps.

I think it depends on where you want to sell them. BST - probably not worth grading any of them. Auction house- also probably not unless the auction wants to do it. Ebay - The Hofers for sure, and maybe a couple others if it's an uncommon set. I think either SGC or PSA would give them an A, and then it's just a matter of which you prefer.

Thanks for the replies.
I have been in contact with PSA and they have told me they won't be able to slab these cards as Authentic/Trimmed. I guess I will try SGC next. Interesting decision by PSA, they are the only grading company I have ever used and now this decision pushes me to try another TPG.

Agree with Bob, the Mathewson and Wagner might we worth slabbing.

Did they give you a reason why?

their response-
"After speaking with the Grading Department, unfortunately, these are not cards that we would place in an Authentic (Altered) holder. If these cards were submitted to PSA for authentication and grading, they would simply be sent back as N5-Altered Stock."
