Competition is usually good for the consumer20611

Ima gonna steal this and look for some occasion to use it! IronMan private msg quote post Address this user
CGC is just days away from announcing the details and costs of a verified signature program (a result of the purchase of JSA) for their cards and comics - and today we have a sale on CBCS signatures verified via BAS.

Unlike previous CBCS sales discounts - this one is good for a month. Not just a week or two.

So - say what you will about the competing grading companies - but competition is typically good for the consumer.

To answer your question, no, this is not where the comics go to die. MutantMania private msg quote post Address this user
I actually still have 1 PGX graded New Mutants 98 with a verified Rob Liefeld signature.

Been thinking of sending it off for a press and a sig verification....but who to send it to 🤔

Hey look it's another opportunity for cbcs to try to grab some market share and get out ahead of cgc with some big discounts, especially on cgc reslabs. Taking a short term loss for long term market share gain is really a no brainer from a business perspective.
So I expect them to raise prices again instead. 🤷‍♂️

As a businessman, I never fell into the trap of trying to gain marketshare vs. losing profits. Some dumbasss thought it up when he realized he doesn't stack up well against the competition but nevertheless decided that smaller margins we better than no margins...

better to change your offerings so you compete better overall i say

Look at it this way:

I walk in and say I can give you 10% market share in your category for X dollars. How much are you willing to write the check for?

That's how much you should be willing to give up short term to gain that share.
