  1. When it says: Now opening submissions delivered the week of May 5th, 2021. Does that mean opening submissions that were actually delivered May 5 or ones that were marked as received? Because my order was delivered in early April but marked as received 6/23 and still says scheduled for grading.
  2. My first CSG order was delivered by USPS on April 13, scheduled for grading June 23 and hasn't been updated since. My second order was delivered May 7 and hasn't been received by CSG yet so it seems like they are slowing down
  3. Did people also agree that it deserved a 9? I guess if edges are the only thing wrong and everything else is mint then it could be 9. This at least makes me more optimistic about the 90s NBA cards I submitted
  4. I heard Nat Turner on a podcast this week and he said that PSA opens back up they definitely won't be opening fully up. Probably just going to be higher level submissions like they were doing before they closed and not doing economy or group submissions until the backlog is done and he said they still have millions of cards in their backlog.
  5. Dropped the ball is an understatement. They had a one time opportunity to steal business from competitors and they blew it. SGC is basically doing what CSG could have done. If PSA has their backlog situation sorted and opens up with 1 week turn arounds like SGC than it will be over for other companies.
  6. My first submission was marked as received today! over two months after it was actually received but it's progress
  7. same here. CSG has been in possession of my cards for over 2 months without them even being marked as received. I hope they are actually hiring lots of help and soon the pace will pick up considerably. I'm not sure how SGC can shut down for a month and go from severe backlogs to 1 week turn around and CSG can't do the same thing
  8. Yeah and it depends on why you are grading. The appeal for SGC right now is for the flippers
  9. Yeah, visual appeal is definitely personal preference. I don't particularly like PSA, BGS or SGC slabs. I really like the look of some HGA but there is nothing else that impresses me about them. I really like the look of CSG slabs. I think CSG labels need some improvement. I like the layout with sub grades but witthout subs the labels have too much empty space. I think they could also change color and logos but that gets into their brand identity so that's another discussion. I am very confident in CSG's actual grading so far and I think they will rise in value eventually. My biggest c
  10. HGA does AI grading and they recently graded and authenticated a fake Brady auto card so I don’t trust it yet
  11. SGC is turning around orders in less than 2 weeks at $30 half the price of CSG express
  12. SGC turn around is less than 2 weeks now at $30
  13. Is that for SGC or CSG? My CSG sub was delivered 4/12 and not entered yet
  14. $30 is their cheapest level now and they are quoting 20-25 days and average from people on other forums is around 2 weeks now. This feels like a missed opportunity for CSG. They probably should have come in with higher prices if they didn't have the resources to handle the high volume.
  15. I would say the same card with subs will always sell for more than the same card without subs if it's the same exact card being sold at same exact time in same exact market etc.
