PSA cards in the mail

Ever since I started collecting again, the pricing of graded cards has really confused me…

For example, I picked up a total of 13 PSA graded Cal Ripken Jr. cards for roughly $1 per card shipped. However, PSA charges around $7 per card to have them graded (not including the cost of the card) and a 45 day wait. Which raises the question, why would you ever pay the $7 for getting a card graded if you can pick them up cheaper on eBay?

Here are the 10 cards I am adding to the collection, the other 3 are being sent off to Beardy.
