    Are any of these worth grading?

    Just picked up my grandpas collection yesterday and it seems he has some value in a few boxes but would love to see what yal think. I took pictures of the ones I thought were worth something and would love an estimate or tips to go about selling them. Also open to selling them through here after I find out a little bit more. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Would only grade the Williams and Banks.

    Agree, I'd only grade the Williams and Banks. Might do the 67 & 70 Brocks, but the rest are too off-centered. Possibly the Henderson rc, but the corners look too rounded to make it worth while...probably be around a 4. Maybe get the Robinson encased for the auto.

    Can't go wrong with looking through an old collection like that though! What fun. I'd be interested in buying/trading once you get there.

    Any Rickey Rookie is great!

    But agreed on the corners.

    Love the Williams too.

    Now I don't wanna be a Downer and I can't see much from the pics, but are those old-fashioned screwdown holders? Because sometimes they can actually harm the cards when you unscrew them to take out the cards. Not always, but it is a worry. Sure hope it's not the case here.

    And GL on what you do get graded!

    If the main goal about grading is the $$$ then look up pop reports and see what each potential grade on ebay would sell for compared to raw.

    As everyone is saying the 2 main candidates are the Williams and Banks, especially the Banks as it looks like the Williams top right corner is bad. (my comp is really small though so I could be way off)

    I think they are Thanks though! I hope I get something decent on those but I'm not positive their gonna crack 7 so I'm not gonna get too excited.

    It's been real fun looking through them for sure! I'll let you know for sure though once I narrow down on some prices and thanks for the tips.

    It's always fun to go through a collection like that! Agreed on the Ted and Ernie.
    If there's much more to the collection, I'm looking for a 1967 Topps Mike Shannon, and would consider a lot of commons to start a new set, maybe 1969 or 1972. I guess let me know what you're willing to part with (even different years).
