    I like raw

    I collect raw cards. The way I see it, graded cards are good if you want to sell them down the road. The 2 major categories of cards I collect, I collect them to save them, and I dont want to sell them.

    Raw is the way to go for me. Why pay a premium price for a card where its condition is obvious? You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who can tell the difference between a 9 and a 10 without using magnification. If using magnification is the only way to tell, then what's the point?

    I mostly go for raw cards, but I'm at times I'll go for a graded card if it's an "important" one that I want to know for sure is in great shape.

    I collect both...I have mostly raw cards, but since I buy most of my cards online these days, buying graded helps to put me at ease...sometimes a seller's definition of "mint" and mine aren't quite the same.

    If a solid graded card isn't much more than a raw one, I'll often spring for the graded one if it's a key card.

    This is just coming from me,but I just collect the cards raw.I'm really not too particular about the overall condition of the card,unless is in really bad shape(i.e.,70/30 or worse centering,good to poor condition).Of course I'm talking about the older cards that I collect.

    I never really cared about the graded catrds.But then again,I don't make that kind of money where I can buy top quality graded cards.

    But that's just my personal taste.

    Out of curiosity, do you collect graded cards, raw or both? What are your sentiments towards either?
