Exactly how I feel.

That's true, and it makes some sick sense. I've never had this many rejects before. It's insane.

Yup. From now on, CGC is for signings that I just can't pass up, usually with aging creators whose work I respect. Aside from that, it's CBCS all the way.

It's easier to have one-stop shopping, that's for sure. The last time I sent anything that wasn't for a signing to The Other Guy was early last year, right before they jacked their prices the first time (I wanted to sneak a few non-pricey G.A. books in before they axed their "value" tier). I haven't regretted the decision to ignore them for my general grading needs at all.

@Byrdibyrd tje only saving grace I have for them is I can send in books and wait to pay for them. Thats essentially why I did it in the first place. I didn't want to wait till money was available for me to send here. I don't necessarily regret doing that but I'm not excited about it either. Waiting to be billed at a different time shouldn't really matter, quality grading and a good product shoul; that's what they offer here.

If you ever lived in an area with just one grocery store, you would realize that you are framing the question all wrong.

Isn't it easier to shop when you have more than one grocery store?

Having different options is key.

Different store carry different products/brands.

Where would we go for autograph authentication if CGC was the only game in town?

That's the way I was thinking.
