Grading is a preference. I find that I don't really care about grading. I open most of my stuff too, so grading is even less on my needs list. Grading IMO only applies to carded items.
On vintage items, if they are as good as you say, you could get top $1 for them if not graded. Some people need that paper stating it, that anyone can see. I have noticed graded items have a high price tag on them to start. I don't know why, but I have never had anything graded myself.
Question about your figures, what characters are they? That might help someone help you in the right direction too. As I would not really bother on grading a Rancor Keeper mint on card, or some in the same boat. On the other had if we are talking some rare figure like Romba or Luke battle poncho I might think about having them graded. I'm not sure one what it cost to grade something, but if the figure is only worth a low amount carded, it's most likely not worth your time and money to grade.
I know you are wanting to know if it will help you to sell these items, but I can't really say if you grade them would help you sell any faster or bring in more on them. I hope that helps to answer some of your question.
