I don't know how many people here will actually give a damn, but here’s the latest shenanigans with CGC/CCG. I’ve been having fun with it “next door”. 🤣🤣

The shenanigans over there made me walk away back in 2020. I haven’t subbed anything since. 🙁🙁

There’s only one thing I can say about that company these days…

Beckett/CBCS should pounce all over this.

I'd say, reputationaly speaking, CGC has never been lower....arguably on par with PGX (give or take).

It has never been more apparent that CBCS is truly the only legitimate choice.

Can someone give be a brief synopsis of what this is all about? I don't have time to read anything regarding CGC. I quit using them years ago.

@earthshaker01 Alleged:

2 CGC employees have been sued civilly by cgc for stealing submitters comics, swapping lower graded books for higher graded books, printing cgc labels with higher grades on books they've stolen, selling these inflated graded books and stolen books on eBay. They've sold over $28K in stolen/inflated graded books.

@GAC It’s always been in the back of my mind to use CBCS for subbing in the future. I’ve just lost the taste for it the last few years. Gun shy, I guess. I’ll buy CBCS slabs too…just haven’t seen many I’m interested in…yet. 👍🙂

I hear you. Unfortunately with cgc having a 15 year head start with virtually no real competition....that's a tough market to crack. CBCS has done honorably for sure in terms of scratching out marketshare but 15 year headstart is alot of already slabbed books.

This is believed to be the wife's Ebay account (recently renamed). The 10 nost expensive items total $35,000 asking price. But she is taking offers, might be a good time to toss her a lowball offer. It looks like she also got her own sketch cover of Action 1000 slabbed in a CGC Signature Series slab and has promoted herself as a "CGC Signature Series Artist".

@EbayMafia I don't have an eBay account anymore...closed it back in 2019 when I started seeing 'the signs'. Would you place a low-ball bid for me? Here's my money.....

Have I told you about the time I dropped off 3,000 comics at SDCC? Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
Scary thing is I recognized their ebay moniker that started with Te…. I double checked and happily did not buy anything from them. Would hate to know that I had stolen merch in my collection.

I am happy to get things for a steal, but don’t want something that was stolen.

Back in 2018, I was deeply contemplating and investigating who to use. I chose CBCS over cgc with my encapsulation endeavor for a few reasons. Besides the fact that cgc acted like i was there to serve them, my research uncovered various likely shenanigans. The most egregious which still blows me away that didn’t get more press was that extrapolations that their onsight grading numbers were impossibly high for the amount of staff and time at Cons. I then started looking very closely at comics encased in CBCS and cgc slabs. Every CBCS encased comic grade appear accurate and justified. Probably anout 30% of the cgc slabs left me with WTF moments.

Are we even surprised at this point?? How long has this been happening, I wonder?

Yes, people are still going to submit to them and yes their books will sell; but how long is the charade going to last?

I fear we may have reached the end of an era.
