  1. I have a slam dunk sitting right in front of me but...... Why settle for a 2 grade bump on a SS #4 7.5, when you know it should be more, seems like a waste of sub fees, unless you need to sell ASAP.
  2. That's it, all CPR is on hold! Seemed like some tiers were fine except express and walkthrough, but now it is bad across the board. That is a lot of books we're going to have to not send in, and back to owners. It's clear to me now the books that have been getting 2 grade bumps have been getting short changed, something I have suspected for a bit now.
  3. Seeing the same thing, slabs from 2019 dropping in PQ, and in grade. I am to the point I think it is best to hold off cracking slabs, especially express and walkthrough, sucks to spend a lot, just to get a drop for book that is clearly better than the first grading.
  4. Is anyone else noticing grading getting stricter every quarter, starting about a year ago? I am seeing CPR's go as bad as 2 grades down, WTF?
  5. We press tons of post 2000 shiney's. Plenty of keys there to press, but you might be surprised how many modern books are sent in for a press and grade, with values as low as $5, or that is what it says on the form, I am not a modern market follower.
  6. The temp just needs to be turned down, paper prefers "less is more".
  7. It's funny, I was thinking, You can take the CGC forum out of Joey, but you can't take Joey out of CGC forum. Go Go Caveman!!!
  8. It's been my philosophy, if it is worth grading, its worth pressing.
  9. Yeah, I thought so too. My observations of life is, everything is impossible until someone figures it out. Been so busy pressing my brains out, I haven't had the time to do the research. They don't go away every time, and I'm not sure why it works half the time and the other time half of the time it doesn't, yet.
  10. Really glad to hear he found a donor, dialysis is a horrible process to endure.
