...These worth Anything?

Flashback to the summer of 1968...Buying my Topps wax packs, flipping, trading and sticking cards on rear bike stays for that motorcycle sound! And of course as any 12 year-old would do as not to get his cards mixed up with someone else's - why not inscribe your initials on them...in ink!  Question for the board - these worth anything?  Thanks

IMO, I would slab them for the memories and to preserve them. In terms of value, I can't really say. 

Yeah, that is probably what I will do...damn, where is a Flux Capacitor when you need one? :-)

i would grade them if they are real but not with csg , for vintage like that id go with SGC , around the same price to sub and you get the cards back in a few weeks  , if you want to wait for months and months and months and months use CSG

I came across these 71 Topps from my teenage collection from so many moons ago.   They were in binders collecting dust in the preverbal attic.   Trying to decide if I should bite the bullet and get a PSA grade?   Should I?   BTW, no question about authenticity as I purchased them as a kid.

I would say do what makes you happy and have no regrets. If you're questioning to grade them, then grade them. Whatever grade they can back in, I think you'll be pleased wirh the CSG slab

I would grade them with CSG.  My last orders of older cards that I sent to PSA got slammed.  I am going to end up cracking some out to send to CSG.  Just my opinion but I wouldn't waste my money sending them to PSA especially if you are not looking to just sell them off.

I would send to SGC for $30/card.

CSG graded my '71 Ryan a 5.5  - ID is 1005604003 if you want to look it up.

Fair grade, lined up with their grading standards.  Yours looks notably sharper but centering is further off.  Probably a candidate for sub grades.
