I've been reading the other Board and it has become clear to me that PSA heads are spooked by GA. Spooked in a way that BGS or SGC can never spook them. People talk smack about Baker and Rocchi on the one hand, but on the other those guys were significant and pioneering figures at PSA -- and that is what has PSA heads spooked.

Everytime they see a GA holder, a heart skips a beat, a shred doubt infects. It's like on some instinctive level, they feel the heart and soul of PSA is now at GA. That must be a tough feeling if you have spent 1000's on PSA slabs.

For me, my hobby life is alot easier -- SGC just grades cards and does it better than anyone. I love their holder. They enjoy respect in the market place. I don't care if SGC is ever "#1." I just want SGC to continue their excellence in grading.
