@IronMan Now, that's just disingenuous...CGC will offer free reholders for people who call with problems, even Newton Rings, they just won't make a habit of it if the same person does it over and over. I've read and seen numerous accounts of people getting free reholders.

Encapsulated anything, really. AFA had the issue where they mistakenly graded Chinese reissues of "Transformers G1" Beachcomber, and many still become worried that they could end up with a graded bootleg. Even after this is one of numerous beliefs proven false.

But with the CGC label swap... There are examples on this on YouTube. I do not know if the people at CBCS and CGC watch these or not. But I did find one amusing because he was praising PGX.

If a buyer threatens or even implies a thread of neg feedback, ebay has a business pod group outside of Salt Lake City Utah which works with honest sellers. eBay will cancel out the red neg.

If some out needs that special phone number I will supply same to you.

CGC will reholder for free cases exhibiting IN THEIR DETERMINATION severe Newton rings. Beginning May 5, 2016 CGC believes they implemented a fix that eliminates severe Newton rings. Small or moderate amounts of Newton rings are considered normal by CGC and do not qualify for free reholdering

This has been discussed near endlessly on the CGC forums. It is either you being disingenuous - or you spend no time on the CGC forums so are uniformed.

The solution to CGC Newton rings - if one wants to avoid them - is to specifically request that CGC use a slab designed for thicker books than what the book(s) you are sending in needs. This extra space keeps the two layers of plastic apart and by all reports on the CGC forums, works very well. But you have to specifically request this. CGC is NOT doing this (the thicker outer slabs) on their own because they feel a small to moderate amount of Newton rings are NORMAL and not a problem.

As a seller, the best thing that can happen to you feedback wise with an unhappy buyer is for them to email you and say/threaten they will leave negative feedback. It's like a get of jail free card. All you have to do is let eBay know there were threats of negative feedback and it goes poof. Using threats of negative feedback is against eBay policy.

@IronMan Funny coincidence. I filed my first ever grievance against a seller on eBay. Long story short...

What I ordered did ship out from the store, did not ship out from the store's state, did arrive in a damaged Amazon.com padded envelope, had a different business name than what they offered, had pre-shipping damage they never told me about, and the "receipt" only allowed me to exchange it at Amazon.com.

And despite all of that, I told them in advance that I will ask eBay to resolve this issue and that I will not submit any negative feedback. At least as long as they cooperate with eBay. With me submitting all photo evidence to eBay, and just the damaged item to them.

One of two safety precautions since this does not have me trust them one bit.

If anyone takes anything away from this thread, it should be the lack of official statements or solutions to the current unanswered questions.



BINGO! We have a Winner!
