  1. Understand your reasoning, however "BGS 9.5 = PSA 10" is just plain false. They are two different companies with two different grading scales.
  2. "PSA makes up the VAST majority of this business and there was literally no way for CSG, which was JUST getting off the ground, could have anticipated the amount of cards at first. " Again. Any with 2 Brain Cells would have taken one look at your competition - Seems like you're unaware, but the massive influx of cards didnt just happen to PSA. It also happened to BGS and SGC. So , again, one look at your competition, which any business worth their salt would have done, would have quickly shown how bad of an idea cheap bulk was. Especially for a new company not yet scaled to handle bulk subs. "literally no way" - is just not true, sorry... And its also a bit dramatic.
  3. Hard to tell from the photos your posted - try taking some at an angle that shows the corners and that are clear. Also that centering is an 8. Not sure what grade you were expecting here.
  4. "literally no way that any card grading company could have ever forseen what was about to happen" Cmon now, anyone with 2 brain cells could have seen the same issues with bulk services creating bottlenecks that occurred at PSA , BGS, and SGC. Its not Rocket Science.
  5. Is the website still being "updated" ?
  6. Getting 7's and 8's on those .50 cent cards and now have to sell at a loss flooding ebay with garbage cards in CSG slabs and overall cheapening the look of the brand.
  7. Its not a double standard at all. They use a totally different grading scale - PSA / SGC gives out 10's at a significantly higher rate than BGS or CSG. Folks want 10's or they want to know why their card got a 9.5 (ie subs)
  8. So the "Grading/Encapsulation/Imaging" Stage , was pretty much to charge you early... ?
  9. Oldest was from 2011 Topps update (not a trout unfortunately ) - had 2 of them that 10'd All the others were from 2018 + No Topps Now cards
  10. So far at 30% hitting 10's (total of ~50 subbed so far) with 2 Perfects.
  11. Just about the same form as the PSA slab (CSG slab can fit the PSA sleeves , albeit snuggly) . However CSG has around 30% more plastic , making them thicker and more protective.
