You might have some fun guessing on this, and I'd be curious to know reasoning. The best vintage card I have -- and I don't have many -- and pretty much through luck, is a 1914 Cracker Jack Marquard, the only PSA 7 (and none above) in the PSA pop report. That was true more than 10 years ago when I got it, and still true today. Even the top collections at PSA only have PSA 4s or 5s. Inevitably, I will put it up for auction but I don't know if should do that now before others are graded, or just wait and wait. Any estimates on what it might fetch in auction--not so much based on grade but because so rare, especially for prime collectors? And if should sell now or down the road? Thanks for any tips...

I agree. You may also think about contacting the top collectors on THE REGISTRY and let them know that the card is available.

Or consign it to a big auction house. Might be a better option for a card like that.

Good Luck

This is the route I would go. With a card of that caliber, it's hard to say how high it would go.

High profile auctions such as REA's spring one would be the ideal stage.
Otherwise i'd have it consigned to a reputable dealer on ebay with a BIN, contacting registry guys for that set would be a smart move as well.
