Hi Matt --

In reply to:

SO here I sit baffled on what to do for I need the liquid which means psa...I wish I wasn't in this situation...




If you have any very high quality 1962 Topps baseball, here's an alternative. Send them to SGC. If they come back as 96's or better ... and they are cards I need for my set ... I'll make your SGC experiment worth your while ...

Matt,
Send me the 61's. I want to see this one. For folks who don't know the GURU he has a discerning eye. The guy can spot a mint card from a dozen paces. He's just a guy who wants consistency AND liquidity...

It's ironic. I sent my 61 Banks in hoping they'd forgive the tilt and apreciate the image quality and give up an 8. I get back a 9!!! If I bought this card as a 9, I'd be pissed. A gorgeous image, for sure...but not a 9...two corners show touches and the tilt at worst point is 38. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Matt has dead centered pack-fresh blazers for, apparently, under 20 bucks Ahhhh PSA...

Dude, give me a shout tomorrow...

Nope ... only 62's and 69's ... uh-h-h ... and remember, we're talking cards.

I've seen some of Guru's cards on ebay. They look very high end.
My guess is he knows his stuff. That's why I'm glad I called about the
Phils. I'll find out firsthand now.

VaYank,

I want to be the first to say it. Based on what I've been seeing and hearing lately, you must be psychic.

Paul Zardoz(51) has become a GA authorized dealer. A fixture on the other board, his evolution has been apparent for months now. There's a symbolic importance here. Me thinks the wiwag thing was the last straw.

Yup, the word has to be spooked.

SGC just needs to keep plugging along, keep grading accurately and consistently.

Had to push this up on the Board. I was pursuing the other Board, and GA/PSA angst is full swing again. That dealer dominated board is, obviously, heavily invested in the PSA slab but increasingly their hearts are with GA/Baker/Rochi. Some former PSA diehards are trying to figure out how to transition their investment from PSA to GA without literally losing their houses. What this means in the long run is anybody's guess, but it likely means PSA will regret parting with the Bad Boys of grading and it means good news for SGC, which is largely free of this type of soap opera. I am also reminded of Buddy Ryan cracking that Cris Carter only scores touchdowns.

One more point. I noticed that an embrace of GA has made some posters candidates for the United Nations. Previously, some of these poster would triumphantly trash any compnay but PSA (saying it was the only true faith) and others would at least be partisan in their choice. But now that they are using GA, and are aware of some of the familar criticism that comes to GA and its brain trust, are espousing a "can't we all get along" thought. There is nothing with that thought -- it's a good one and I even picked up a GA slab as an impulse buy recently -- and certainly all major graders except BGS are options, but I find the evolution fascinating.

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