Really Rough Week, But CGC Made It Better...3159

....When I mailed them back 20 of their labels today.. Muwahahaha!

Ok, does this make a difference to CGC, no. Is this a little juvenile...probably...but it did feel good to send these off.

Did you get all these regraded by CBCS? If so, how did they do?

@Thanatos Out of the labels shown, two of the books I haven't received back yet. The 9.6 was pressed and got a 9.8. 4 of the 9.8's dropped to 9.6

Edit: Yes, all were subbed to CBCS

The only thing that would have made it better would be if you included a note saying you had them re-graded by a better company, PGX.

I just let CBCS crack the slabs and deal with them. I'm sure CGC is thrilled every time they get an envelop of these with CBCS on the return address.

@mattness Why did you mail them to CGC? Was it so they can currect their census? Or just to remind them that they are not the only game in town?

@BrianGreensnips I wasn't going to send in the labels. My first reaction was "who cares if the CGC census is correct" I had a couple fellow CBCSer's, @DarthLego and ... @dielinfinite maybe... encourage me to send the labels in. In the end it was the right thing to do.

Edited for content.

4 out of 18 dropping is pretty good..too bad you didn't have any 9.6s that were not pressed for some better stats...only place you could go is down with 9.8s....has anyone ever heard of a prior 9.8 getting a higher grade upon resubmittal (pgx excluded)?

@mattness Looks like you made a good decision.

@Drogio Sorry, I only had one 9.6 to start. I only had four of the books pressed, the one 9.6 and three 9.8s (signature books) All the rest were not pressed including the four 9.8's that were downgraded. Maybe I should have had those pressed lol.

I think he sent a message in a very civil way.

ALSO, we all have something to gain from those being removed from the census..

Comic books man, not life and death!

Just an opinion. Justify it how you like. It juvenile and vindictive. Thought this forum was better than that.

@Hexigore what are you on about dude? People are SUPPOSED to return cracked labels to CGC for Census maintenance. This is encouraged by CGC!

Feel free to get self-righteous. That wasn't the point of the original post. You want to justify it as removing books from census, but the original post was an f-you to CGC. Nuff said. Peace!

Well, duh! I fail to see why that is a problem on a pro cbcs forum. We're you expecting the community here to kiss cgc's behinds?

personally I don't have an issue with cgc...so what if they're a little inconsistent, practices suspect at times and aren't as friendly as you'd like them to be...it's like they're lex Luther and cbcs is superman...the dynamics keep the relationship (and these posts) interesting!

LOL see I should have kept the labels

Now keeping the labels would be the "dick move" because every time someone does that the Census losses accuracy.

I just thought this forum was above this kind of pettiness. Was I wrong? It is one thing to constructively critique the competition, but it is a complete dick move to actively and openly mock them. The competition is WHY CBCS is successful. It pushes them to be better.

Would have meant more if you said you hoped this would improve the accuracy
Of their cencesus in your first post.

He didn't need to hope that or say it, because the very act itself improved the Census.

You go with that. 😘
