    I have a '9' graded E3 red cheeks much do you guys think this little bugger would be worth?

    Well, without the grade it's a hundred dollar card.
    For those that pay more for grading, it could be a lot more.
    Not really sure what grading adds to the price.

    It's when you send a card off to a company with experts. They look at the card. Determine how close to mint it is using a scale (like 1 to 10) and they take your card, seal it in a little plastic box thing and put a piece of paper at the top that says what number they rated it. People like that guarantee from a reliable source.

    But in most situations, getting a card graded is a loss of money, because some cards just aren't worth the price, or if it is a playable card that people want to put in their decks.

    Yeah, having a really rare special card like this always seems to add a great deal of value. I once saw a guy selling a non graded shadowless Charizard and it only went for about $20. Then another guy sold a graded one for about $70. Just an example for you.

    i'd say its probably worth somewhere between 150-200 if its normally worth 100, also it depends by what company its graded by. do you know? psa and bgs are the best/highest valued
