Received a book back in September (sketch cover signature series) and it had Newton Rings. Chalked it up as something of a transition period case. Received 3 books back  this week and 2 out of 3 were good. 1 of them had them though so no, the problem isn't gone. 

1st pic - book graded in September

gino2paulus2 - Thanks!  Pics are up on the sketch thread and on my Instagram account.  Artist is Rob Broussard who's done some work for Topps.

Emailed CGC about this same Jungle Action 6 having a bent corner making it look as if it was sliced off (folded back during grading, sent in as PGX graded book and didn't have folded corner) and also mentioned that this particular book had Newton Rings.  Pretty disappointed in their long winded response which i'm sure is the typical generic response but especially bothersome is "There are Newton Rings present in all of our encapsulated books, these are considered normal and acceptable." 

Thought this issue was getting better?  (shrug)

Are they still pushing out that line after everything that's been said? 

 

Their customers don't seem to agree with them...

And thanks to the boards embedding software for selecting that particular thread image! (worship)

I like bought this new tv a while back and there are splotches all over the screen when i'm watching my programs. Anyways I guess I don't care cuz i'm more interested in my shows than I am the TV itself.

Wow, can you be anymore of a drama queen?? Your comparison makes absolutely no sense, just like the comparison a guy made with the 4 tires. In fact, it goes against your chronic complaining about the rings being the most important thing, moreso than the actual comic , the grade and the protection. It's sad that when you send a book to get graded, which I see you still do, you are like "I hope there's no NRs , don't care about anything else. I don't even care if the book slides around in the holder, just as long as there's no NRs".

Why should anybody be put into a position to take less money, especially when it's not their fault?

I think this was in response to the people who think their books are now worth less because of NRs. Any logical person isn't in the position of wanting to take less because of NRs. I guess you missed the sarcasm.

So what's the current opinion? Are recent submissions coming back without the splotchy Newton Rings now?

I sent in three books for re-holder recently, only one had NR. Still feels like playing roulette...

Was just a joke. Sorry you thought it more than that.

People need to realize that what isn't important to them may be very important to others. Let's say that John considers NRs to be a 2 (on a scale from 1 to 10 on what's important), but Steve considers them to be a 9. Does that mean Steve should be ridiculed by John?

 

Kind of in the same ballpark as "What I collect is great & what you collect sucks."
