Is CSG Prepared?

Didn't see this and posted the same in another thread. If you recall what happened to SGC when PSA shut down, this will be the same thing all over again. People are going to send to SGC and CSG. Plus Prizm basketball releases tomorrow. Good timing for PSA, bad timing for everyone else.

SGC just went to $75 a card.  You can still do Beckett at $20 or $30 per with no subgrades but you have to wait a year.  What a joke.  

SGC is going to dry up fast at that rate. If they have a backlog, they won’t for long. Will be interesting to see if they keep their word and reduce prices when circumstances warrant. Not something that happens often (maybe ever) in the business world.

I'd love to see what a moderator would tell us about this, but they probably are carefully crafting their messages to the public about this very unfortunate set of circumstances. So they probably need to just give press releases and give info on their site, and that's going to be very precise language for a very imprecise situation.

Well if it's anything like the other comments about lack of being fully prepared..

Expect to hear crickets..

This will probably give you a good idea on how this is going to play out.

They tend to ignore any questions like this, or anything of any importance.

With the message in their news section regarding the price hikes/changes coming up, I guess we heard what many of us anticipated. These are definitely interesting times in the hobby and I wish nothing but the best for CSG.

CSG followed suit and increases bulk leve prices by 66%. Do their cards bring 66% value of PSA? Not even close. These grading companies are shooting themselves in the feet out of greed, and taking advantage of customers. 

I was a faithful SGC customer until the bulk rate increased from $20 to $35, after an increase $8 to $15 and then $15 to $20. I walked. 

PSA lost me over a year ago with the year-long wait times. 

SO last night I came to sign up with CSG at the $150 membership level, and while I started that process I saw the message about price increases. And I stopped signing up. 

Unless I pull some amazing card and it looks perfect, I am done submitting cards to get graded. I cannot send my cards to CSG at $12-$20 rates when the cards might not even bring $30 compared to $60-65-100 with SGC or PSA

I listened to an interview where they hired I think it was 8 people that were going through the grading training process.  They want to strive for consistency in grading, and are also hiring more as well.  Really hoping they can keep up and get on top of the turnaround times ;)
