Sorry, but seriously....

 

I have signed books that haven't been witnessed and they are in NM condition. I want them slabbed.

 

I'm sure they'll make the 9.8 grade. What's better? A CGC Green label or a PGX label?

 

Thanks,

When I am shopping I never look at PGX books. Can't see myself ever buying one.

Okay. So a Green label (Qualified) book has more market value over a PGX book?

 

Are there any other options to get out of the (Green) territory?

 

For example: Tyler Jenkins and Wiebe signed my c2e2 variants during the convention. Obviously they're real and not counterfeit, but because it wasn't coordinated through CGC, I lose. Since this was done at a convention with pics, are there any exceptions? :-/.

 

Thanks!

I personally don't support crooks, thieves, and dishonest people.

 

So, IMHO, stay away from PGX.

I'm not a big fan of Sig. Series books,only because I like my books without ink on them.I do however have a few books that are signed by my favorite artists,and to be honest those are books that I Will treasure because I met the artist.I really don't care whether they are re-sellable(is that a word?) or not.They are special to me.

I will never buy PGX again.

 

I bought a TOS 39 PGX 5.5, cracked it out of the PGX slab and sent it into CGC and got a 3.5 (2 grades off!!!).

 

I also bought a DD 7 PGX 6.0. When I cracked it out of the slab I discovered a coupon had been cut out of it with no mention of this on the PGX label.

 

Bad, really bad. Dishonest. Stay away.

Okay, so leave PGX alone. They're crooked. Got it.

 

But

 

Will you all laugh at me for having a green label?

 

Yes.

 

Okay. got it. lol. Times have changed indeed.

Are you planning on selling the book? Do you need a resto check?

 

If no to both, IMHO, just keep it in its Mylar and enjoy it the way it is.

Resto check? what is that?

 

Yes, I want to sell when the time is right - but nobody is going to want a "Green" unverified signature book. In other words...

 

"Ain't nobody got time for that".

 

lol...I learned and won't have my books signed anymore unless I make a phone call.

Restoration, CGC looks over every book they grade to see if it has been restored.

Okay. No resto check needed. It's a new book. It's a c2e2 variant. Got a limited edition c2e2 Peter Panzerfaust, and got excited when I saw the writer and artist. Had them do a sketch and signing of the book.

 

Big mistake

 

Now, I can't get it graded without a green label. Next time, I'll tell them thanks, but I gotta consult my attorney first (CGC Reps) before they ink up my books.

 

All good. I have a sense of humor to my mistakes. I guess it is ridiculous considering this wasn't needed during the Jack Kirby days. Business has changed a bit, that's all :-).

You will probably make the same amount if you sell it raw than you will getting it graded. Leave it as is.

Green labels are no big deal.Do they hold a bad stigma? (shrug)

Calling them "Green Labels Of Doom" isn't a stigma?

 

I know and you know they aren't always a bad thing, but does the average person in this hobby, upon hearing that for the first time, know that?

When you can easily get the same book in a SS holder? Yes, it would be a complete waste of money.

I personally have no problem with a green label provided it is a signature I can verify myself either through pictures or that I have a signature to compare it against (preferably both)

Case in point.....I have a Green Label Mad that I had Sergio sign for me that is hanging on my wall. It is definitely a keeper!

If you are doing it for investment/flipping purposes however it wont work out well for you as most people place Green Labels just a hair above PLOD's

I have no problem with green label either but I don't typically buy them. Now let me straighten that out. I send in my own books to be graded and slabbed as green label because I want them protected and encapsulated and mine are typically sketch covers I have had done at shows in the past where either CGC wasn't at the show or I couldn't get a witness and wasn't about to pass up on getting a sketch. So they have a place in my collection.
