    To open or not to open..... 🤔

    Just received my Topps Transcendent Griffey Blue Autograph #/25 from Topps.

    Should I open the package or leave it unopened for possible higher resale later on. I don't know if there are any inscriptions on these cards.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Do they come in sealed containers where you cant see the auto? Or are you talking about opening the bubble mailer?

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think having it in the bubble mailer adds any value to it... plus I want to see it!

    If you're not going to get the bubble graded, I'd open it.

    Pardon my possible ignorance, but is that something that's done? Not even opening up the mailer? I've never heard of that before

    You already scribbled out your address, so it's worthless.
