Davalillo -

Welcome to the boards. Sorry to hear of your recent experiences with PSA. I am no stranger to the frustration that you feel and have many of the same criticisms and concerns. While my investment in PSA graded cards is almost non-existent in contrast to yours, that does not in any way diminish my fears. I earn my livelihood in a market in which PSA dominates and often find myself questioning their motives and practices. I would hope that one day that will change or that PSA will re-evaluate their business model.

It will be great to have your input as a hobby veteran.

Gumball-

Who is Zarduh51?

Thanks,
Greg

Thank you all for the warm welcome. My post caused quite a stir on the psa set registry message boards. I tend to be very direct in my comments and that tends to rub many the wrong way. Regardless, I love the hobby, am totally committed to trying to complete my numerous sets and hope to have constructive things to add to the dialogue here from time to time.
If you read the thread on psa, aside from the personal attacks which I could care less about, I think that the serious people on the board agree with most of what I say. Where I drew the most criticism is saying there were not many there who had a broad knowledge of vintage cards(I define vintage as 1959 and earlier with 1960s issues being semi-vintage). I still believe this. As I pointed out there are several people on those boards with detailied specific knowledge about particular sets in the 1960 and 1970s. There are also several who like to joke around and several who like to argue. There are also people who ask many questions and several helpful people who try to answer them. However I am serious about the hobby. I love it but as I said I will call a spade a spade and my focus is completing my sets in psa 8 or better.

Davalillo,

One more thing....regarding an allegation made by Vargha on the CU forum. I am not "waitillitstartstosmell" and the rude comments he made in no way reflect my thoughts or opinions of you.

Welcome to the boards. I echo MW's comments that you should try out the product and judge the results for yourself.

Regards

Ron

Davalillo,

I have reason to believe that "waitillitstartstosmell" -- the guy who constantly insults you on the CU forum -- is Alan Cowart.

MW!,

Thanks for the info and I appreciate your earlier comments. Alan is one of those guys who apparently sees himself as an expert in vintage cards and is offended when one points out that there is no evidence that he is.
I really don't know about this waittilitstartstosmell person but all of a sudden he comes on and does nothing but attack me. All I remembered was that he and King Kellogg--another real lowlife--wanted to go to the national together and hold hands while they went to the show.

Regardless, people like those two--you have to realize that they are just jerks and ignore them.
