MW1,

Like that one!

I laughed when I typed it. I'm waiting for Botn to respond.

BOTN,

You used to be an outspoken opponent of GAI but now you're their #1 supporter....in fact, so much so that you're beginning to sound like Steve Rocchi. Please dispel the rumors that you two are the same person. Thank you.

Botn,

I read your post. The big question that comes to my mind is this. How many
more ex Psa people can Gai continue to hire? If for example some of the
other graders leave Psa will Gai grab them too? Also, if Joe O were let go
do you think he would get hired by Gai...

Aconte-GAI is doing fine. It would be irresponsible of me to speak on matters concerning their finances but I can assure you that they are doing just fine. They are a two year old company who has continued to exceed their expectations of gross revenue. I am sure that they could use someone like Peter Ma who I have always found to be very hard working and trained by a very qualified person, Charlie Kahler.

As discussed tonight with Baker, when Orlando is let go, GAI has made it clear that there is no room for him in their offices unless he would like to work directly under their janitorial staff. Guess he may have to sit for the BAR after all.

MS-You would be surprised how many dealers are endorsing both GAI and SGC in addition to PSA. Collectors are crossing their collections and not all of them are done at cost. As it stands now, GAI has more representation in the April Mastro auction than PSA. I would say that is an endorsement of some sort. As PSA continues to trip over their own two feet, GAI and SGC will be directly benefiting. Dealers and collectors, who never before considered using these services are openly embracing the opportunity.

Honus

I am flattered in your interest but this was covered recently in one of my posts. If you cannot find it I will send you a copy of my autobiography once it is published.

Best regards,

Greg

I don't know which is more pathetic on the psa boards:

Orlando acknowledging his own company's press release that MW1 brought to everyones attention. And then saying don't worry--the virtually useless SMR will continue in its present form--hooray for the PSA PREZ.

The lapdogs that bow down every time he gets on the board and says absolutely nothing.....at least he cannot insult one of his biggest customers now that I am not there....oh gee Joe thank you for clearing the air about this rumor and speculationand please Joe bend over just a little bit more so I can plant that kiss right on your rear end.

Meanwhile of course, there is only misinformation that comes out and absolutely no answers to the pressing questions of the day...which have been repeated over and over again.

I am glad to hear that there is no job for him at GAI--I as well have noticed a decline in market share of psa among major vintage dealers(mostly at the expense of GAI).

MW1,

Your response on the red man's was classic.
