I'm not much on keeping up with popular phrases. Considering that I'll be 40 this August, the need to appear cool was something that I concentrated on 25 years ago, not today. I still encounter people that think I'm crazy for collecting baseball cards at my age, but I could honestly care less about what they think. This is my hobby and I love it. Recently, I made another purchase for my Votto Rainbow project. The latest addition is this 2013 Topps Mini Pink numbered 10/25. There's only one slight problem. This is my very first graded card I have ever purchased. I'm not much on grading cards because I think it takes the fun out of the hobby. Having an independent third party determine just how pristine a card is seems a little sketch to me considering that I feel some of those factors they use are arbitrary. But I also know that it's suppose to be difficult to have a card grade a 10. Just for the heck of it I looked on PSA's website to see the report on this card. Apparently it's the only 2013 Topps Mini Pink Votto graded. My question for you is should I keep this card encased in plastic or snap him out of there? If I bust mini pink Votto free I just worry that I could damage him in some way. Let me know your thoughts.
