I used to routinely hit 50-60% with 59's, even higher sometimes. Not so much anymore. Why? What changed? Your guess is as good as any.

cammb: Almost all of mine are crack and send; the 50%+ success rate is based on that. When I don't bust them out, it's because either (a) I don't have enough confidence they will cross, or (b) if I'm wrong and they wouldn't make the SGC equivalent grade, the residual value is higher in the other holder.

trex: Old pair of eyes is one guess. Not the exhuastive list though.

Keeping the card in the original holder guarentees at least your return on investment, out of the holder the card will stand on it's own merit.

I agree. I really meant low value cards.
