Grondorr 38 Member · Posted November 9, 2019 Share Posted November 9, 2019 (edited) I have a reasonably large collection of sealed GBA games, only of which about 10% are graded (as I bought them pregraded). To date I haven't sent any in for grading. I don't have any near term plans to sell my games, so I am not in a rush to grade them for sale purposes. My (very) long term plan is to collect a full GBA set and eventually upgrade them all to Mint copies. (Not M/NM, MINT.) Since my long term goals are to eventually get mint copies of every game, it seems that I should only formally grade copies of games that I believe will grade at 95 or better, or if I am selling a recently upgraded game. (Assuming I learn to grade properly, and factoring in the small variability of individual graders, if I find something that I believe is mint, it should still grade Gold, which isn't the worst outcome, as I'd probably eventually need to grade it to sell it, when I do a condition upgrade.) For this to work, I believe that I need to learn to assess the grades of my games by a methodology that roughly aligns with VGA's. I need to be able to know if something is bronze, silver or gold, and within gold what numerical grade it would probably get. Any locals want to teach me? P.S. - I don't have a fully fleshed out plan for variants, but I do plan to get both the regular and player's choice variants where they exist.
