Is “fresh from Oregon“ code for the slabs that shall not be named?

@00slim Yeah, technically, there is no rule about mentioning PGX (there is a rule against posting pictures), but I always feel like I'm swearing when I post those three letters!!!!

@Jesse_O I was just making sure I was picking up what you were laying down.

Just be conservative with your offer & you’ll be good.

The fact it’s a consignment might complicate matters. A lot of the time, the retailer’s hands are tied when it comes to negotiation. The owner usually tells them a max percentage they’re willing take off. From my experience it’s been around 10% on average.

But see what happens!

I would forget that PGX even exists, but so many people hate them that their name always surfaces and reminds me they exist.

Being from Oregon, I cringe whenever I see "fresh from Oregon" in reference to our resident graders in waiting. Sigh... Usually our exports make people very happy, coffee, art, timber and uh...plants

The real reason I commented on your post was because I wanted to post something I am completely happy with that just arrived fresh TO Oregon by way of TX...

Books aren’t new but the sigs are! Love the red on daredevil. ASM 50 dropped .5 in grade but that’s the chance you take when rolling the dice on cracking for a sig. Still looks great.
