Definitely take advantage of the experience on the boards here. Post pictures of the cards in question and ask people their opinions on either the perceived grades or what type of dollar value they would put on the cards. If you wanted to go the route of selling your cards and purchasing the ones you're interested in from that other guy, ask people to make offers on your stuff. Might be an effective first step.

I would think you could get a deal done without grading anything, unless the guy with the cards you want is a complete novice about T206s.

Let me know if I can help. I buy raw stuff all the time and feel very comfortable with what they will grade based on scans.

Couldn't agree more with what Luke has just said.

I would have to be getting one heck of a deal to consider making a trade with someone who uses SMR to value his or my cards. My guess is this will not be an easy transaction.

Most people who frequent the board are realistic (key word there is "most"). I use SMR for T205s, a little bit. It is a guide. I very rarely pay exactly SMR....I pay more and I pay less but rarely
exactly. It is a public number to go by and is a starting point

I rely more on their recent auction data than I do the SMR. Not only do you get more recent prices, but you can view the actual card that sold to determine where yours could potentially be priced based on your quality vs. others in the same grade.

I can't think of any method other than falling back on a yearly price guide less reliable than SMR. Not a fan.

Sell your cards for a fair price and negotiate a fair purchase price. I agree with prior posts, this smells like a difficult trade.

Default Thanks to Luke and Scott for their help

Luke and Scott volunteered to take a look at scans of the cards in question and give me a better idea of what was going to be involved in this process if it happens. Havenít heard a word from the gentleman with the two cards Iím interested in and not really sure I ever will unless I pursue the matter, and that would probably make me seem desperate, which Iím not. Would be great to get them but Iím not fool enough to do something stupid. Thanks to Scott and Luke, now I know what I should expect or ask for.

Help from members is what makes this board great, whether advice or an extra set of eyes looking for what youíre interested in. Thanks to all.

There is almost 17 yrs of information stored on the site and a wealth of knowledgeable members. I ask for a second set of eyes quite often, privately, when not publicly. The forum/board can be a great resource.
