I briefly looked at it...if I am reading it right:

they won't grade books over $300, and they won't grade restored books (shrug)

their "slab" is just .55 mil plastic (shrug)

no where could I find "who"...to me, that is the MOST important aspect of a grading company ...

 

interesting though

 

Gator: Judging by the location, did you think the "who" might be the same person that I thought it was?

 

The style of case makes me believe it is not but you never know.

Heck, I might start a company where I charge people to grade their books and I'll just seal them in commercially available Mylar sleeves and put a grade sticker on it... doh!

Someone beat you to this. It's called a Time Capsule.

 

:ohnoez:

 

And they're frozen for 20 years. (worship)

Looks like RJ took down the pictures of his Time Capsules.

The last one was about his comic prep service with Patrick.

Well, according to David G. in Athens...

 

Grading and selling my comics has never been easier or more profitable...

The picture and statement from this add cracks me up. Reminds me of the old " Grit" or "Seeds" adds on the back covers of comics.

Looks like the "slab" is nothing more than one of those plastic packages that you have to cut to get into.

 

This is similar to the way PGX started

Spill the beans, JJ. By phone or PM, or I'll go back to US spellings.

OK...sucker bid placed...all are roughly the same price...and hoping no one else will bid on this drek. Minimum bid placed on the Thor 142. If I snag it, I will bring it to this thread for comments, jokes, and generally $15 worth of entertainment...after I slice off a finger opening it, we'll throw it in a grading thread and see how it comes out (thumbs u

Looks like these guys are aiming for the clueless kids/grandparents market: a bottom-feeding approach suitable for hustling--in large quantities, quickly & cheaply produced--on the Home Shopping Network...

If you buy any of these, you'll just be encouraging them. :baiting:

That's my guess too and I also think the seller is probably associated with this company.
