So heres the updated information.

CGC called me and senior graders agreed that the grading was "too strict"

the 9.2 that was graded 8.0 has been adjusted to 9.0

The 8.0 then went to a 7.0 has been turned back to 8.0

Thanks to the folks at CGC for correcting this issue.

 

Wow, so I assume anyone who submitted during that period can ask for a regrade...at no charge of course.

Yea, I sent old labels too but I I did this in a short window of time. I think the longer you sit on it the worse off you are.

:facepalm:

 

Someone want to tell me again how CGC isn't being overly harsh right now? Those are huge swings in grade. Huge. That needs to be rectified quickly. I mean really even if Voldemort slabs are getting 10-15% less in price, if CGC is hammering books to this level for no good reason maybe its time to make a switch.

Voldemort has always seemed like a half to a full grade higher than CGC but it now feels like a grade and a half to two grades difference.

The signature is not going to affect the grade, and certainly not from a 9.2 to an 8.0.

 

This is not strict grading, this is new graders.

 

There are no new finalizers at CGC.

 

Same graders.

It worries me that something can be resubmitted and come back lower but glad to see that CGC is recognizing this and willing to make amends. I hate the subjectivity but I guess it is what it is.

CGC is in one of their PMS grading moods right now. I recently CPR'd several slabs, all improved in appearance, and all but one came back with the same or lower grades. In fact one of them was just a straight crack and resub -- what I thought was an undergraded book in a cracked holder -- it went from 9.6 to 9.2.

 

Bottom line... CGC is being extra picky right now and not consistent with previous standards.

 

 

Wow, I was ready to pull the trigger on a large submission. I think I am just gonna hang out by the sidelines until things settle down.

Grading is subjective and authentication is not iron clad, the services provided are more in line with being best guess estimates at times given the track record of controversial incidents.

 

Nobody should take CGC as absolute law and rules, it's loose guidelines.

 

Be your own judge.

Grading is obviously arbitrary and inconsistent.

The downgrading of books seem to be going on a lot from CGC.

I have a DD 168 9.8 that went to a 9.6 after Miller signed it, and pressed. Not a huge drop but still I would have loved to retain the 9.8. This is my 4th book downgraded by CGC after a signature. Now it just doesn't seem to be worth it unless you have a Steve Ditko sign.

I think it just proves how inconsistent a 9.8 vs 9.6 really is. The fact that going from a 9.8 vs 9.6 cuts the value IN HALF boggles my mind and the market is foolish for supporting those prices.
