So, since the PGX thread keeps getting locked down by the moderators I just wanted to update everyone that the PGX site is now up.

It looks like they have finally spent some of that hard earned money in upgrading that hideous website of theirs. However it seems that they have hit major speed bumps in that the site keeps going up and down. I guess they went with that second rate web design company, hey, kind of like they themselves are second rate to CGC...hmmm...go PGX! Sure know how to represent the second rate companies!

You can lock this thread now...

The site looks much better than it did, and they grade the same, for less money.



Slabbing comics is still too expensive.

Why is it that moderators feel they have to delete every thread that looks suspicious to them?
Even though everyone is being civil and just discussing things?
Why is that a certain mod feels they have to suspend a board member,and take away their mod priviledges just for defending the fact that they were not doing anything wrong.Just discussing in a civil manner,should not get one suspended.
Mods you should allow positive discussion!
There is no need to delete or lock a thread unless there is abuse of any kind,which by the way there was not in the deleted threads.
I left a year ago because people kept piling on that I was a CGC sympathizer.Then I come back to find that the mods(Jim) are completely power stricken.Remember Jim with great power,comes a great responsibility.You my friend clearly overstep your boundries.
Well I just want to say goodbye,and hope beyond hope that maybe for the rest of you the mods read this and learn to be a little more patient in their deleting/locking process.
I'm also sure that this will probably get deleted too,even though there is clearly no arguing,cursing or hatred of any kind.

As a moderator, but not the moderator that did it, I stand behind the decision made. If things did stay civil, then it wouldn't have been locked. The problem was that things started to become un-civil amongst a couple posters. Disagreements are fine and part of a healthy forum, but when insults or personal attacks start to be hurled, that's not okay at CCL.

As long as things stay civil, this thread won't be locked. None of the moderators or admin at CCL has a vendetta against PGX or anything, I promise.

We just want to make sure that everyone who comes to CCL is treated with the same respect. Which the wonderful members here at CCL usually have no problem doing.

I think of Jim as Lex Luther...mad with power!! Im not sure what happened here before, but even i heard something, and for it to reach me must have been a big deal. I messaged Jim and let him know that i hope what he is doing is justified.

Think pgx is a cheaper route than cgc, and i wonder what the turn around time is, currently with cgc its over 6 months, so pgx may be an option especially for current stuff, if i can get them slabed and back ready for sale asap...

I heard they were handing out high grades easier than say CGC, but that was just from word of mouth. I had thought the same thing, PGX for new stuff and CGC for old stuff but i dunno... Silly


...and please everyone, be careful as I don't want to start another PGX thread because of stuff getting off topic...it's getting annoying and kind of confusing since I can't even access the stuff in previous threads as it's been locked down from normal users of the forum... Wall

I have to preface this by saying I have NEVER bought a PGX book (although one is on my wishlist).


But.....Go watch that TMNT PGX video again, closely and tell me if you aren't at least the tiniest bit skeptical of that guy. It al seems, well, it seems staged.

I use them for new stuff and find their grading to be good. I find they are pretty close to what I feel the books are. I like them if you have questions they answer in a timely manner and the turn around is about 20 days or so, so on new hot books not a bad turn.

I still don't understand what makes any of these services reputable or credible. I could start my own business of slabbing comics, charge and arm and a leg to seal your book in a plastic case and put a fancy label on it which you'll believe makes it worth 10 times what it's supposedly does just because I told you it is.

Since I run it out of my basement and it's mail order only, I will replace your actual books with reprints and high quality scans and nobody will be the wiser until someone is brave enough to crack open my crappy cases.

Of course, you have a point, but, of course, it isn't as easy as you say.

Many many people have cracked open CGC cases and, as far as I know, maybe 3 or 4 times ever have people found something fishy.
While I think it is wise to be skeptical that they don't have side deals with people grading comics high for a kickback (or just grading their own books high and having a third party sell them for big profit).....I don't think their integrity on the actual product inside the case can be reasonably questioned.
