I wanted to mention that while attending the National last week I got to meet Sean at the SGC table on Friday. Super nice guy. Had a 20 minute chat with him there that was very informative. I was very happy that he took the time to talk!

I stopped by PSA's table and stood there 15 minutes before I could get someones attention. GAI was not that much better.

I couldn't agree more. When I first started to get curious about the Set Registry, Sean talked to me on the phone for almost 30 minutes. We eventually got off topic but it was great to see how much he was willing to invest in me so that I continue to do my business with SGC

Sean is a huge asset to SGC!

He is a pro for sure and one of many reasons why I use Sgc.

I would just add to "props" here for Sean. He and the whole skeffington mafia does a great job.

Sean is an asset to the hobby. I could think of a certain President of another grading company who could learn a few things from Sean. He is always great to talk with about the hobby in general. He is sensible and cares about the health of our industry.

Bouffard,
I have noticed that you have requested a number of times that SGC should change its grading label. But I have never heard what you do not like about it. Please feel free to contact me so I can hear you out. In my opinion, the grading label should be functional and informational. I believe our label achieves both. The focal point of a slab should be the card and the presentation (black insert). The grading label itself is secondary at best. Of course these are my feelings and some may disagree, but most of the people I speak with really like our holder they way it is. I cannot say that we will never change the label or any other part of our holder, but a change does "date" your product and breaks the consistancy, in terms of appearance, of many collections.

Regards,
Sean-SGC

Do you mean Joe Orlando? Come on, Greg! I know you still cry over the fact that he was the main reason you were kicked out of the PSA boards, first you asked Joe Orlando to forgive you, and now you are attacking him here. I personally believe that you would not be here if it wasn't for PSA kicking you off their boards.

You are two-faced.

i believe you answered your question.

the green stands out too much and pretty much clashes with every card. i would lose the the web address. i would choose one or the other 1 to 100 or the 1 to 10. i am leaning on the 1 to 10 because thats the universal language when it comes to card grading.why confuse new collectors?
i have no problem with the case and black insert and i will say it till i am blue in the face. i just think you need to keep the focal point the card not the label!
a nice silver label with a small sgc logo at top and the card info and grade would be nice.

my 2 cents

Bouffard,

Frankly, I'm a bit surprised to learn that you are not on top of the psychological essentials of color management
