Ive seen a few laughable grading services out there that made my skin crawl. Just curious to know which grading service that you actually (not heard about) sent a card or cards in is the WORST available grading service in your opinion.

Never submitted to, but "AAA" the "grading service" owned by LibertyForAll on Ebay is by far the "dung-beetle" of the hobby grading services. That's the company that cuts pictures of Ruth, Gehrig, Wagner, Cobb, Speaker, Joe Jax, etc out of magazines, and sells Xeroxes of the cut-out in a 25 cent 4 plastic rivet lucite with a 1 cent label attached with a grade. I think that they just grade their own "cards".

Old, dense-headed hammers are cool. Best nail pounders.

good call skinny -- i think that they are now gone, correct? Or maybe, as you said, just gone from eBAY. In that dealers defense, I will say that I got some of the absolute freshest raw '68s from him in the past...all checked at at least 88 with about 30% landing in 96 holders. I wish he had more.

aconte,

While I have no solid evidence, I believe at least part of the statement to be true. I used to buy a good bit of material from this dealer (before I even knew of the message boards, much less the dealers identity on them) and believed him to be one of the best on eBAY (I never had a bad deal with them and the stuff arrived like a rocket ship). In the "about me" tab, they talked about only dealing in quality graded product (PSA and SGC were named). Then all of the sudden, a ton of FGA stuff appeared in their auctions and the "about me" tab changed. I also noticed a suspicious similarity in the 2 mailing addresses. So, at the very least, something appeared funny -- whether it actually was, or not...I cannot say with 100% certainty. I have wondered if the "ZAG" grading service isn't somehow associated with this situation.

I do not know about FGA being banned from eBAY, but they certainly are not there anymore. I checked and the website is also gone.
