Is it just me? I don't give a rat's azz about light scratches, scuff marks or marks on the plastic that I will see at certain angles with a loupe. Have you seen how slabs are handled at shows? They go up a wall, the come down a wall...some many, many times across multiple shows. God forbid they're in a box and people peruse through them like, maybe, comic books? People need to relax and live a happy existence - they're encapsulating the comic book with a protective hard shell that is exposed to the cruel world - it's doing wha it's supposed to. I don't care if it's coming straight from CGC - the label on the slab is for the comic in it, not for the encapsulation. The only exception that I will grant is if there's a poor encapsulation that either can damage the book (remember puddling? or introduces foreign material into the slab - that, I agree, is poor QA.
