It’s because grading is so expensive, a dealer will look for ungraded stuff, spend £50 getting it grading and then demand an extra £100 - £200 for the item depending on the grade it gets. Even more for the high ticket price stuff like Boba Fett and 12 backs. The collectors that only collect graded stuff will spend what they have to as well.
There is no doubt grading has played a part in the huge price increase in the last 10 years. But like I said before, it’s what collectors want, otherwise the grading company’s wouldn’t still be thriving.
AFA are increasing prices soon as well.
