They don't have OCD, they're just anal retentive.


It's the same thing, hippie.


Nope.

Hippie? LOL. Ask Borock and Catman what I think about hippies 😵 😉


Peace bro, your secret is safe with us.

I just watched the video for the new design and I think it looks pretty clean. I am not sure if I like the hologram as much though. Reminds me of Upper Deck cards from the 90's. I was not a fan of the original logo either. It had an uptight feel to it. Still 50/50 at this point.

I'm not the only one who doesn't like the rivets. That's good to know 👍🏻


Ribbits! ...Really? Books should be riveting, ...not labels.

Honestly, the rivets are the only thing I don't like. Overall, it's a decent design. Not perfect, but it could be worse.

Remove all the rivets and I could at least live with it. Not crazy about the fonts, but oh well. Prefer the old logo, but I could learn to love/hate it. But those rivets have to go.

I hear ya. Collectors shouldn't be forced into a love/hate position. Was it really crucial to change the label at this time? I haven't seen any serious outcry for it. The complaints seemed periphrial at best, and decidedly mixed. Most folks liked the old label well enough even if tweaks (such as strengthening the color gradations) have been recommended.

Consistency is extremely important for a grading service and changes should be thoroughly vetted before being incorporated by a clearly defined need.

One reason that consistant label design and color is crucial (and changes kept to a minimum) is confusion on dealer walls and auction sites.

Of course, this is just my opinion; OMMV.

I agree with everything you just said. Well put.

Even in this teaser thread from day one, people were saying "hope it's not a new label" multiple times. You think somebody at CBCS would have blown the time out whistle.

Something CBCS could've done is come up with 3 to 5 different designs and had a customer / member vote. One of the options would be to keep the design as is. The option with the most votes wins. 🏆🏅🎖

Good suggestion. Certainly better than doubling down on a controversial design without broad support. My counter suggestion would be to offer customers options, old design or new, ...that simple. There are no other concerns that need addressing such as holder issues, so that'd be workable if they chose to do it.

You would think after the CGC fiasco they would have held off on this or at least take baby steps.

These companies have to realize they are dealing with OCD collectors, a tiny stress line FREAKS us out, what do you think adding rivits would do? LOL

I feel really bad for these companies, but holy heck didn't anyone say um lets see what the customers think first.

OR, make a huge marketing campaign "help us design the new label!" Then have people send in concepts or ideas, then let the community vote on these.

The winner could get a free membership.

Even more cowbell wouldn't improve the new new... new? logo and labels.
