In reply to:

In any case, who will be standing in the end? GA or PSA?




Tough to say. They both could be around for a while. The Psa name is
strong. Evidence of this is with overgraded gem mint 10's such as this
card with an already $400 bid or so.

I just posted a couple comments in a thread on the Psa board.

Anyhow, I won't by GAI graded cards for many reasons. Some of their
tactics are low. There was an example of how their mentor program
had one person who did not even authorize or know that he was on
this list. This was mentioned on the Psa board. I was not surprised.
Just another example of Rocchi's win at any price attitude.

aconte,

Even with a bad Carribean hangover, I can honestly say that is the worst looking gem mint card I have ever seen. I do not understand how badly centered cards end up in the wrong holders. Of all the criteria for grading, centering is the only one that is truely objective -- it's not that hard...a 10X measurement loupe is all you need...and I'm not sure that one is even an 8NQ.

On the subject of this thread, I agree with you -- I think both PSA and GAI will be around for a while...and so will SGC. All in all, probably not a bad thing.

I think I need to go back to the islands...the real world is killing me!

Srs1a,

Welcome home! We missed you around here. Put an ice pack on
the head and let's gear up for the National.

I agree, thats a HORRIBLE GEM 10. PSA should buy that card back and change it to a 9 at the most. Shame shame.
