How do you even trust the grade when they get it that wrong?

Looks like quality control is after being graded. Separate from graders. Still dumbfounded this can happen.

This is both hilarious but legitamentally scary to be the person that gets the books back. Hope CGC can fix the problem, never thought this could happen.

Wow.  I just don't understand how one can make that bad of a mistake.  Is it the same people that pack the Amazon shipments?

Not a surprise, do you really think the majority of people working for CGC care about comics, let alone... your comics, when they punch the clock.

people make mistakes.  when you have high volume, then there are more opportunities for error.  .5% error rate for 50,000 books - just to pull numbers out of my * -  is still 250 errors.

 

i agree that it sucks though, in the sense of being rather inconvenient.  this is the kind of mistake that just seems hard to understand, although i don't know all the details about their process...which you would hope involves actually looking at the book but that is still just an assumption on my part there

Agree would be helpful to understand their process.  Still hard to understand given that all it takes is a glance at the label and book before it goes out the door.  We all make mistakes.

Comparing the April 2, 2019 CGC Census to the April 9, 2019 CGC Census, there were 10,626 books graded in one week.

Assuming there is only one person responsible for encapsulating the book with the printed label, and assuming they work 40 hours, they would have to do 266 per hour, or about one book every 13-and-a-half seconds.

If there are two people encapsulating, it's one book every 27 seconds.  If there are three people encapsulating, it's one book every 40 seconds, etc.  That assumes multiple (identical) encapsulating machines as well.  :busy:

If they like to smoke, and most smokers take about 14 breaks a day, it's one book encapsulated every 0.3 seconds. :kidaround:
