Default Grading a 1/1

I checked the forums and could not find anything on this, I apologize if this is repeating.

I am just about to break into grading. I am trying to decide what cards I would like to attack first. As my title says, grading a 1/1; is there value in grading a 1/1?

I feel like the value is not really there. Great if you have a psa 10 1/1, but it is still a 1/1 so the condition does not make it stand out above the rest unless you are comparing to other 1/1's.

Any thoughts, opinions on this? Thanks for your time.

I have graded 1/1's, to me if it gems it would add a slight premium over the raw value. You're also adding protection for the card and clarity to a potential buyer as to the condition.

I do it for protection. The 9.5/10’s look much better Imo. Although I’m not doing it to add value. Mine are for the collection.

I personally don't think the risk is worth the reward. What I would suggest is having them slab authentic...

2014 Panini Score Khalil Mack Hot Rookies Black Printing Plate
Serial Number: 1/1 | Grader: PSA | Grade: Authentic


2016 Panini Absolute Karl Joseph Rookie Cyan Printing Plate
Serial Number: 1/1 | Grader: PSA | Grade: Authentic


2015 Topps Supreme Clive Walford Rookie Autograph Black Printing Plate
Serial Number: 1/1 | Grader: PSA | Grade: Authentic

I've graded and sold many 1/1s. It does add substantial value to the right people.

I would highly disagree with slabbing authentic. In my personal experience authentic carries a stigma of "whats wrong with the card that its only authentic" and I would rather sell an 8 vs an authentic. But again its all about the right people. Some it bothers, some it doesn't. Just like some grade 1/1's and some don't.

If its for PC then its up to what you like. If its for resale value then I gotta grade it provided its an 8.5 or better. Plates you gotta watch, surface and "bends" can be an issue.

Completely agree (highlighted in bold) with this statement...except when it's regarding printing plates.

For grading a printing plate as authentic I wouldnt have any issues with it. But to try and grade a printing plate - I dont see the value as it should be very low.

If you wanted to grade a 1/1 out of the product (parallel and not plate). It may add some value, but to me with grading still needs a 9.5 or higher to justify the grading for modern cards.

But generally speaking to me, until you get say 25 copies of a card, its hard to really establish a premium for a solid grade on a card as you wont have the statistical background to establish the rarity of the grade.

Again, I disagree lol I have a beautiful Sharon Stone plate graded a 9.5 and it looks amazing, I have an 8.5 Peyton printing plate and I know the 7.5 on the surface is why its low and see the ink spot I could clean off to bring it up a notch or 2. Then there is the 9.5 Peyton that I sold for $300 at Tri-Star last weekend.

Authentic still carries the stigma of whats wrong with it, even if nothing is wrong and its a 9.5. 95% of the people who sees an authentic in my display cases always asks "Whats wrong with it?" "Is it trimmed?" "Is it creased?" "What are you trying to hide behind the authentic label?"

With plates I will say - if you're not going to get a high grade there is no reason to pay the grading fee. For resale of a plate there is no need for an authentic label.

Again, my experience and YMMV as every single person is different. Now for PC - that's a totally different ballgame.

For me if its a pack pulled 1/1 grading it is nice, but if its encased with a topps sticker id rather them leave it in that case.

Love the feedback all. I think I am going to go with grading my 1/1's besides printing plates. I think a mag is just fine for the printing plates. Even though I do not value printing plates, I might get one of my PC players, but that's where it ends.

Which is a huge part of the equation. Buyers today have dozens of 1/1s to chose from for most players. Having a graded PSA 10 or BGS 9.5 will almost always add value.
