I saw a Kellerman piece from ebay that had Darth Vader – AFA 80Y
ESB 48 Back on the listing. I understood most of it...
2 questions -
Whats with the Y? I can't seem to find anything on grading.
I found the "U" thread, but no "Y"
Is there a checklist of grading points? What deducts from a piece?
The kids are bugging
me about sending several of their pieces for grading, and my BIG question is it worth the costs for a plastic case & sticker? I understand protecting the condition, but is it needed for value??
Yeah, I know the crooks are out there with the fake "rare" items, so authentication would make sense for a true rare piece, but more common ones (that didn't take the months house payment to acquire), do they need it also?
I know I'm all full of questions & am glad that people are friendly & helpful. It seems like a community
